By Kathrin Schmitz

Germany, also known as ’the land of poets and thinkers’ is one of the most dynamic, multicultural and attractive countries in the European Union and a top tourist destination. The German language is spoken by over a hundred million people worldwide and the second most commonly used for scientific communications, as well as one of the more creative and widely employed business languages. Check out our top 3 locations for learning German in the country it is spoken.


Internationally known for its famous Cathedral, Cologne is one of the cultural hotspots in Germany. The fourth largest city of the country offers something for everyone; visit one of the over 20 museums, go shopping in the city-centre, take a boat trip on the Rhine, or have a beer in one of the many pubs and try some Cologne specialities. If you visit Cologne in February, you can experience one of the craziest festivals in Germany, the Cologne carnival. The Kölsche Lück (Cologne accent for people from Cologne) will welcome you with open arms.

A visit to the Olympic stadium, a day at the Zoo (which holds the most comprehensive collection of species in the world), a crazy night in the clubs … Berlin offers activities for anyone and it won’t leave you disappointed.
