Travel the World: Berlin

Tuesday 20 October, 2020 at 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm

Discover new places and destinations with our Travel the World series, every Tuesday from 1 pm to 2 pm during term time.

Experience different parts of the world as fellow student and staff volunteers share insightful stories about locations across the globe, from famous landmarks to local hotspots. This is an exciting opportunity to learn about new cultures, including local traditions, celebrations, etiquette, food and much more!

On 20 October, we’ll be talking about Berlin!¬†

Join us for this virtual event.

Staff member Doris Bechstein, from the International Office, will be sharing her knowledge of Berlin for our second Travel the World session. Doris is from Germany and joined the University in 2018; she’ll be talking about some of Berlin’s history as well as recommendations of places to visit:

  • The Berlin Wall
  • Beautiful forests and lakes within the city of Berlin
  • The unique alternative ambience of Berlin
  • Recommendations for visitors (e.g. Christmas markets, museums)

All of this will be brought to you as an interactive presentation, with the opportunity to ask any questions you may have for our speaker!

This is a fantastic chance to broaden your cultural knowledge, learn something new and be inspired to visit new places in the future and engage with students from all over the world.

The information presented in this event represents the personal views, observations and experiences of the speaker. We welcome your diverse range of questions with cultural sensitivity in mind.

If you’re interested in volunteering and sharing your knowledge of a particular place; be it a country, county, city or region then please visit our volunteering page to find out more!
