Berlin is not only the capital of Germany, it’s also the largest city in the country and the most populous city in the European Union. It’s renowned for its exceptional range of landmarks, vibrant cultural scene, wide variety of markets, and superabundant green space. About one-third of the city’s area is composed of forests, parks, rivers, and canals.
For several centuries, Berlin has been at the heart of not only European politics and culture, but also world affairs. Once the city reunified after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, it became a place best known for its striking contrasts: from classic historical buildings to cutting edge modern architecture, from exquisite malls to traditional markets, and from classical opera to techno and house music. Berlin is a city full of optimism that epitomizes modern Germany in its forward thinking and inclusive nature without forgetting its historic past.
In recent years, Berlin’s economy and workforce has been booming. The city is a hub for the business, marketing, startup, technology, media, and logistics industries (and so much more!).
An internship in Berlin is the perfect way to gain practical professional skills and work experience while enjoying the captivating spirit of Germany.

City of Berlin
Public transportation makes it easy to get around Berlin, as it is well integrated, cheap, and efficient to use. Your daily commute will most likely be via the metro (U-Bahn), local train (S-Bahn), bus, and/or on foot, so make sure to bring comfortable walking shoes.
Berlin has been at the heart not just of European politics and culture, but also world affairs for several centuries. As a city reunified in 1990, it combines a tremendous variety of experiences, from fine historical museum, to cutting edge modernism, to a vibrant club culture and sprawling parks.
