Berlin is in the heart of Europe. And we are in the heart of Berlin.
Germany's capital is a hub for political and cultural events, and a crossroads for travel in Europe and beyond. Located in the city's "Mitte" neighbourhood, the Hertie School is just minutes away from the Reichstag, the Brandenburg Gate and other important political and historic landmarks.
Berlin is a political hub: young, diverse and international.
As the capital of Germany, Berlin is the epicentre for political decision-makers and policy debates. It's also a city where history is all around, a fascinating backdrop for studying public policy. Berlin draws young people from around the world, bringing with them a diverse set of cultures, skills and activities.
Berlin is affordable and easy to navigate.
Among Berlin’s many assets is its affordability. Housing and general expenses are relatively lower than in many major capitals worldwide. It’s especially welcoming for students, with countless special discounts at many venues.
It's also known as a very bike-friendly city, thanks to the flat landscape and many cycling paths. Whether on foot, by bike, public transportation or car, life in Berlin is accessible and easy-going.
