From your shared home at Stargarden Apartments, it’s a 20-minute tram ride to Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin Campus Nord, and a 30-minute tram ride to Universitätsmedizin Berlin. With Schönhauser Allee S-Bahn station a four-minute walk away, exploring the rest of the city on weekends is equally easy. Discover the Neues Museum’s famous collection of Egyptian sculptures and papyruses, or stop to admire the politically-charged Berlin Wall murals at the iconic East Side Gallery.
When you get home, head upstairs to your furnished apartment. Choose a private room with a double bed, or ask the landlord to provide two singles for you and a roommate. Grab a snack from the fridge and join your friends for a catch-up at the dining table, before opening your books and using the free Wi-Fi to research an assignment. Spend the rest of the afternoon kicking back on the living room sofa in front of the flat screen TV, or relaxing with a book on the balcony.
Later, throw your laundry in the apartment washing machine and walk six minutes to local grocery Asia-Markt. Stock up on Asian specialty ingredients and mouthwatering fresh produce, then put your purchases to good use in the fully-equipped kitchen. After dinner, stack your plates in the dishwasher and wander through to the bathroom for a refreshing shower. Choose a new outfit from the wardrobe, then head out for old-fashioned cocktails and international craft beers at trendy student hangout Badfish Bar.
