    Unfortunately, due to COVID regulations, our programs in Berlin are closed for Summer 2021.

    Europe's spunkiest city and a hotbed for entrepreneurial activity.

    Because of the vibrant, youthful energy, relative low cost of living, and great infrastructure, Berlin has attracted entrepreneurs and futurists who have innovated in the finance, tech, and biotech spaces in particular.

    Ella Needler, iX Berlin 2019
    Washington University in St Louis 2021
    "I quickly felt at home in Berlin - the city that welcomes everyone and everything. I came to love the street markets in Mauerpark, the Vietnamese food in Kreuzberg, the little shops in Hackescher Markt, and the graffiti all around. The ordered chaos of Berlin was exactly what I wanted for my summer, and thanks to iXperience I was able to experience something new and unexpected."

    Art

    Ablaze with art.

    Street art and world-class collections make Berlin a thriving hub for art and creativity. Delve into the deeper meaning of graffiti, tour one of the 440 galleries, or 150 museums – many of which are open to students at little to no cost.

    History

    A historic hotbed.

    Rebuilt after World War II and split in two by the Cold War, Berlin occupies one of the most critical and controversial spaces in history. Explore a nuclear bunker, the Holocaust Memorial, Berlin Wall, or visit a German concentration camp near the city.

    Low-cost living

    European living for less.

    Despite its size and capital status, Berlin remains one of the least expensive European cities to live in. In fact, compared to New York or London, Berlin is said to be five times less expensive.

    Music

    Music around every corner.

    Berlin is known for its deep house and techno scene, but you don’t have to head underground. Pop up concerts and street buskers draw the crowds to public parks where smoke can be seen billowing from the many BBQs that take place during summer.

    Travel

    Easy Europe exploration.

    Berlin’s central location means that exploring neighboring European cities couldn’t be easier. Flights to Europe can be found for as little as 50 Euros, while Prague is 5 hours away by car, Krakow is 6, and Warsaw 5.5.
