My week in Berlin

My week in Berlin

Berlin 2

Berlin 1

Last week I had the fantastic opportunity to travel to Berlin with the De- Montfort University Music Society. The trip was arranged by DMU Global who provide international experience programmes for De Montfort University students, with the aim to enrich studies, broaden cultural horizons and to develop key skills valued by employers.
As part of the trip the DMU Music Society showcased some of their amazing talent at Kiezkulturwerkstadt in Charlottenburg, many local residents came to watch and joined in with music playing well into the night ! We were also lucky enough to be there for the Fête de la Musique where Berliners celebrate the beginning of summer with an open air music festival, and musicians and bands play live music in the streets of Berlin for free. We saw a range of music from Classical music at the Berlin Philharmonic to a big band on the pavement in Alexanderplatz.

The sun shone for the majority of the time we were there and was luckily shining brightly when we visited the Berlin Tempelhof Airport.- one of Europe’s most iconic pre-World War II airports which sat abandoned for several years after its closure in 2008. Today, it is officially Berlin’s largest park since its reopening in 2010, and one of the world’s largest free inner city spaces, which made it ideal for bike ride! Obviously this was all followed by huge amount of currywurst. All in all a great week away !
