With its nearly 4 million inhabitants, Berlin is Germany's capital and a global hotbed of contemporary culture. For the young adults attending our courses, this city offers plenty of sights to see and things to do. They can personally experience Berlin's exciting music scene and youth culture. 

The new youth hostel near the Ostkreuz station combines modern facilities and contemporary architecture with the charm of a building under heritage protection. It is steps away from the most popular entertainment and night life areas in Friedrichshain- Kreuzberg. With the excellent public transportation links, the attractions of the city center are within easy reach.

In addition to an extensive sports program, we arrange group outings to concerts, museums and exhibitions, movie nights and other activities. The course fee includes a Berlin Ticket for free use of public transportation.

For example: badminton, barbecues, basketball, beach volleyball, billiards*, boat excursion, bowling*, cinema*, city walking tours, class band, clubs*, concerts*, cycling, disco nights*, flea markets, foosball, go-carting* gymnasium jogging movie night, museum visits, open air theater*, soccer, swimming, table tennis, tennis*, theater*
