Once divided, Berlin is once again the center of German politics, arts, and cultural life and the gateway to Eastern Europe. It is an East-West metropolis with something for everyone. Traverse the streets of Berlin and you will find the monumental Brandenburg Gate, the shops and bustling commerce on the Ku'damm and the hip Hackesche Hoefe district. In the Tiergarten the "House of World Cultures" presents a wealth of events and exhibitions featuring cultures from outside Europe.
(Summer 2021 will be offered remotely)
