Berlin: Not so poor anymore, but sexier than ever...
Berlin has become one of the most vibrant and modern cities in Europe. For years the city has attracted artists, musicians and people of all walks of life who were in search of an inspiring and at the same time cheap place to live.
In 2003 referring to the growing appeal of the city, the then mayor Klaus Wowereit called Berlin “poor but sexy.” Today, more than a decade later, Berlin still remains one of the cheapest European capitals with hundreds of start-ups and businesses that have literally mushroomed, creating thousands new career opportunities in different sectors and making it more attractive than ever before.
The theatre of some of most significant historical events of the 20th century, Berlin has recently experienced an upsurge in the number of tourists comparable to that of other European capitals such as Paris, London and Rome. To top that all off, the presence of tuition-free universities offering a plethora of academic courses, some excellent research institutions and a growing political influence on the European decision-making stage, make Berlin a beloved destination for a growing community of international students of several disciplines.
Despite the recent Eurocrisis, the German economy has continued to show significant signs of growth, attracting huge investments from abroad and not only. This has created more job opportunities, attracting a crowd of international graduates who choose the German capital for their international internship or work experiences.
The multicultural and multilingual vibe of Berlin allows to carry out internships in English in almost every sector, while giving interns the chance to learn some German.
