Berlin, the city of freedom

It was a place of two dictatorships in the 20th century. But today, the German capital stands for freedom, progress, multiculturalism and diversity.

It’s a place for open-minded people from around the world, and it is characterized by the typical “Berliner Schnauze”.

In short, it’s a little rough around the edges, with a cosmopolitan vibe.
