+ Master Education Fair Berlin - Testimonials
Torsten Evers, Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg
We have had a very successful exhibition day today. Again everything was very well organized. There were many prospective students who were very well prepared and asked very specific questions. We consistently had excellent talks."
Armin Koschorreck, Humboldt University of Berlin"
We have done all day long talks with interested visitors. The students were well prepared and many came to the exhibition personalized newspapers directly to us. This approach has borne fruit very well. "
“We talked to many interested students today that met the profile we are looking for. We are from Berlin and have a lot of experience with educational fairs. This has by far been the best fair in Berlin that we have ever participated in.“ (Dr. Holger Endrös, ESCP Europe, Germany)
EduCanada - Embassy of Canada
"Due to the perfect communication prior and during the MASTER AND MORE fair in Berlin, we felt very satisfied with the service and organization. Also the location, the Postbahnhof Berlin, had a special character and is especially attractive for younger people such as students. We were happy to see that the demand for Masters programmes in Canada is still on a high level. We had a lot of good conversations with well-prepared students. We would recommend this fair not only to other higher education institutions but also to prospective Masters students who need more information about national and international institutions and programmes.” (Bastian Wiesemann, EduCanada – Embassy of Canada)

Things to do in Berlin
Berlin – visit the capital and cultural centre of Germany, known for its diverse art scene, architecture and enjoy your Christmas time in Berlin to the maximum.
We highly recommend attending one of the so called walking tours, where a local guide takes you through the city, shows you all important but also hidden treasures, explains the historical background and recommends the best spots to dine. You can choose among tours focused on history, culture, street art or try the Trabi tour – do you remember the Trabant car typical for the period of 1960-1990? If you decide to walk through the city on your own, we would recommend not to miss out on the most famous historical monuments of Berlin. The Reichstag building with its magnificent top glass floor with amazing view (book your ticket ahead), Brandenburg Gate, the Berlin wall and the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe.
The Pergamon Museum
Located on the Spree River, the Museum Island is a place to be for all Museum geeks. The Pergamon Museum is one of the five museums on the island and every year, more than a million of people enter its gates to see Antiquity Collection, Islamic Art Museum and The Middle East Museum.
Enjoy the Nightlife
The nightlife in Berlin has a long and rich tradition. There are countless clubs, bars or just random places with diverse music; it doesn’t matter if you like to listen to jazz or techno, there is a place in Berlin for everyone. The nightlife starts rather late around midnight but most of the clubs are open until the morning. We would recommend starting at one of these locations: Kastanienallee, Kollwitzplatz or Hackescher Markt.
There are shopping malls in Berlin, but what you should consider too is visiting one of many flea markets happening regularly in Berlin every week. You will find everything you can or cannot imagine - unique, artistic, old-fashioned stuff for good prices and delicious homemade food.
