Welcome to Berlin

Berlin, Germany's capital, does not need much presentation. History, architecture and a vibrant cultural scene, Berlin has them all. The city has also Germany’s largest concentration of universities, colleges and research institutions.

The weather at the end of September can be pleasant, although there is always the possibility of rain.
