Learn What It's Like to Live in Berlin

Berlin is a thriving city, with an astonishing history and distinct neighborhoods; some with wide green spaces and concert halls, others with artists' enclaves and late-night bars. Many expats also come for the cosmopolitan way of life and the excellent schools and amenities. There are plenty of sports facilities and cycle routes, and the pretty surrounding countryside is popular with day trippers. Many expats who have made the move to Berlin have done so because of the robust German economy. It's thriving, which means employment opportunities abound for expats.
