After class activities in Berlin & Germany

If you want you can join our activities complementing the German courses - we organize 

This is how a week at GLS may look like:

Sunday

Arrival in Berlin and transfer to accommodation: The GLS reception is open 24 hours (after 8 pm there is no receptionist, but the security man will check you in). If you stay with Berliners, please try to schedule arrival between 9 am and 9 pm.

Monday

Afternoon: we show you around in Prenzlauer Berg, the neighbourhood. Evening, 8 pm: old an new GLS students meet in the GLS restaurant . Depending on the season there usually are between 40 and 120 students present.

Tuesday

We take you to see "Kunstwerke", one of the best addresses for independent art in all of Europe - the cafe there has good cakes!

Wednesday

Walking tour through Oranienburgerstraße - before the holocaust this used to be a center of Jewish life, and today that street is one of the trendiest in Berlin. Great opportunities for shopping on Oranienburger Straße!

Visit of the Badeschiff - a swimming pool in the middle of river Spree, with a fantastic scenery and a nice bar. At night: every Thursday we show a movie with German subtitles (big screen in the lounge)

Join us for a boat trip around Museum Island - or do a bike tour with us, along the Berlin wall. At night our guides take you to Friedrichshain: a young and rather alternative district famous for its nightlife
