21 Days Studying Abroad in Berlin, Germany

Created By:
Taylor Karkut

 
Just a sophomore neuroscience major interested in German history and culture. I decided to study in Berlin so that I could learn more about the Berlin Wall and the Cold War Era. I traveled alone through a study abroad organization--AIFS. I am studying in Berlin for the month of January. I would highly recommend this location to anyone interested in history and beautiful scenery.

Visit to Berlin Olympiastadion

Olympiastadion, Berlin, Germany

The Olympic Stadium is Berlin's largest sports stadium. It was built for the 1936 Summer Olympic Games, it now hosts major sports and entertainment events.
Berlin's Olympiastadion and Glockenturm (Olympic Stadium and Bell Tower) was built for the 1936 Olympic Games when the 2400m horse-racing track in the Grunewald district, by Otto March 1909, was demolished in 1934 to make room for a new National Stadium designed by March's sons Werner and Walter March and supervised by Hitler's Imperial Interior Ministry.

Dinner at Russian Tea Room

Tadshikische Teestube, Oranienburger Straße, Berlin, Germany

The tearoom was built as a Tajikistan pavilion at one of the Leipzig trade fairs in the 1970s. After the trade fair ended, the pavilion was donated by the Soviet Republic of Tajikistan to their East German hosts. The pavilion then moved to the first floor of Berlin's Palais am Festungsgraben.
The tearoom's lush interior is decorated entirely in a classical Persian style, with carved wooden pillars and thick Persian carpets. Tea and food are served on low wooden tables which are typical of central Asia. Guests sit on the floor, stretched out on comfortable cushions, and visitors are required to take their shoes off before stepping onto the carpet.
