Studying in Berlin during winter semester – an international perspective
What I like most about Berlin would have to be the “buzz” in the air. Being surrounded by a high-energy environment is motivating and constantly pushes you to get out there, interact, up-skill and achieve. Berlin as a city has this “buzz”, and it permeates throughout our campus.
My favourite place in Berlin…
One of the many co-working spaces off the mainstream that are scattered across the city. The atmosphere lends an inspirational backdrop.
The Bikini Berlin shopping centre houses some of the coolest independent designers from all across Germany – a very unique place to grab your Berlin look!
…to go out:
The mix of expats and trendy spots in Berlin Mitte, a borough situated in central Berlin, is where I usually gravitate towards when I go out with friends.
…to eat out:
I occasionally like to treat myself to delicatessens at KaDeWe (Kaufhaus des Westens) – a large legendary department store. Who doesn’t like a little bit of luxury?
My cosy apartment with a direct view of the TV Tower.
…to get in the Christmas spirit:
The Xmas market at Gendermanmarkt, enclosed by the picturesque opera house.
That’s confidential information 😉
Anywhere along the river Spree.
…burn off energy:
With the IUBH running society in Treptower Park
My favourite place:
One of my favorites haunts in Berlin has to be “Thaipark”. A weekly Sunday ritual in the leafy borough of Charlottenburg, Thaipark is a celebration of sumptuous authentic Asian offered from make-shift stalls spread across the greens of a cozy park. Expect a picnic type atmosphere, lots of sun, smiles and a fiery bowl of red curry!
