Program Description:
Few cities have been shaped to such an extent by history and undergone as much major transformation as Berlin. Once the capital of East Germany and an international symbol of division during the Cold War, Berlin now celebrates its diverse and multicultural flavor, exemplified by the enriching influence of the Turkish community and the dynamic presence of the growing Jewish community. An exciting city of contrasts, Berlin is forever evolving and can be explored in its countless variety of historical and modern attractions, museums, palaces, theaters, cafes, clubs, and street art. One of Europe’s most vibrant, exciting and colorful capitals, Berlin is characterized by its dazzling modernity, breathtaking architecture, and pulsating, round-the-clock culture.

Freiburg, in the southwest corner of Germany, and in close proximity to France and Switzerland, was founded in the early 12th century and rapidly developed into a cosmopolitan center. At the edge of the enchanting Black Forest, it is among the country's sunniest, warmest and most 'green' cities -- a place where tradition and modernity blend harmoniously with nature and culture. Its scenic old town, filled with charming streets and elegant facades, and little streams ("Bächle") attract tourists and students all year round. Freiburg is also known for its ancient university and medieval cathedral, as well as for its outstanding quality of life and advanced environmental practices.
