German Courses in Berlin, Germany
Berlin is the biggest city in Germany with almost 4 million inhabitants. After four decades of separation, it is now reunited.

But apart from the hustle and bustle of the city life, there is always a place to rest, as more than a third of Berlin’s surface area is covered by woodland, parks, and lakes. The people of Berlin are tolerant and cosmopolitan. They are hospitable, cheerful and have a very special kind of charming humor.
