Cultural Activities

This Winter School covers three of Germany's most interesting, important and largest cities: Frankfurt as a financial hub, Berlin as the German capital and Hamburg as the harbour city in the North of Germany. In each city students will have plenty of activities to discover the typical aspects of each city. Typical German dinners, sight visits and city tours will be part of it.

Site Visits 

To help students better understand the work of the organisations and companies, site visits will be part of the programme. This gives students the opportunity to talk directly to companies and on some occasions also learn about job entry qualifications for young professionals.

Participants at the East Side Gallery in Berlin


Students will spend the weekend in Germany's capital Berlin: the fastest growing startup ecosystem in the world.

Berlin, the capital of Germany and the country's largest city, is also a major center of politics, culture, media, and science. Noted for its cultural flair, Berlin is home to the world famous Berlin Opera and Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, while its diverse art scene encompasses hundreds of galleries, events, and museums, including those on Museum Island, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

With countless monuments and museums memorializing the many world-changing milestones that occurred on either side of the wall that once separated the east from the west, it's a European historical gem.
