Language school Berlin – cultural program in Berlin

Cultural Program

Exploring Everything that Berlin Has to Offer, Together!

Every month DIE NEUE SCHULE’s cultural program offers a variety of activities for our students to take part in. From “Stammtisch” (having regular drinks somewhere) in traditional or cozy area bars to museum visits or guided city and gallery tours, as well as all-day excursions to other renowned German cities, we always have something fun and educational to offer.

Those who take advantage of this program quickly get to know other language students from all over the world while getting familiar with the city’s famous sights and learning all the "insider tips" to help make their experience in Berlin even better.

Learning German in a classroom is one thing, but speaking it on the streets is another. Our cultural program facilitates a special chance for you to get to know the ins and outs of living in the German capital while taking advantage of the opportunity to use the German you are learning in the classroom. You will learn so many things that you did not previously know about Berlin while building the confidence you need to help you become a fluent speaker of German.

Once or twice a month we also offer a full day excursion to other cities, such as Hamburg, Dresden or Leipzig. Our participants are accompanied by a German teacher who is along to make sure each person has a fulfilling experience. Since we travel on a group train ticket, you will also save a ton of money on transportation, paying around €25 for your train ticket on each excursion.

All activities are accompanied by one of our teachers who has a deep knowledge of German history and culture, and all activities are free of charge for our students (with the exception of travel and entrance fees).

 

Our cultural program

walk through Neukölln
Location: Meeting point in front of the office

Is Neukölln now the end of the city, the dangerous ghetto with the worst schools or the new cool part of Berlin? An answer is not so easy. Or maybe it is: Neukölln is both. We start with the place where it all began: with Rixdorf. This is one of the last real villages in Berlin.

field trip to Dresden
Location: Please register in advance at the office

Around 1700, things were happening on the Elbe. The Electors of Saxony crowned themselves kings and rebuilt their city in baroque style. One of the most beautiful German city panoramas with breathtaking buildings was created. We walk through the old and the new Dresden and enjoy three hundred years of history and stories.

Costs: 15,00 Euro (with own 9-Euro-Ticket)

walk through Oranienstraße
Location: Meeting point in front of the office

In the days of the Wall, every tourist had to go to Kreuzberg to eat a grilled chicken at the "Henne," the little beer garden right next to the Wall. That was considered decidedly cool. We follow the former course of the Wall from Moritzplatz to Oranienplatz, which offers quite surprising perspectives.

botanical garden
Location: Meeting point in front of the office

The botanical garden offers good opportunities to take photos. We take a leisurely stroll through the new flower magic in the garden in hopefully nice weather. In case of cold and rain we will stay in the warm tropical greenhouses. Cost:

BVG ticket + 7 euros.

walk through Fasanenstraße Spichernplatz
Location: Meeting point in front of the office

Kaiserallee was once one of the top addresses in the metropolis of Berlin, bordered by wonderful Gründerzeit residential palaces. Many writers lived in this area. Today the street is called Bundesallee and is something like the end of the world, a wide city highway of selected ugliness. We set out on a historical search for traces from Spichernplatz to the Literaturhaus in Fasanenstraße.
