It’s big, diverse, multi-cultural and never sleeps. It’s a major hotspot for all up-and-coming trends, styles and electronic music, and it’s more than just the capital of Germany — it’s a breathing entity.
You have Berlin on your radar as your upcoming study abroad, Erasmus or abroad adventure. However, you’re still in that uncertain phase where you tell your friends and family, “well, I’m not sure yet.” Let’s solve this. In 2016, Berlin was ranked as the cheapest city in Europe to be a university student. Let’s just say that means more cheap German beer, fun nights out with the friends, and weekend travel trips.
Berlin also hosts some of the largest universities in Germany and Europe, including Freie University, Humboldt University, and various technical universities. You can tell your mother you’ll be receiving a top-notch education by coming to Berlin, and keep the late nights at the disco club stories between your friends.
