25 Years Fall of Berlin Wall | Price Overview 2015 | Second UED Award | Students' Corner
Hello Friend Newsletter in EnglishNewsletter auf Deutsch

For 28 years, the Ber­lin Wall sep­ar­ated the Ger­man cap­it­al in­to east and west and be­came the sym­bol of a di­vided Ger­many. And it has been al­most equally as long since the wall was opened as a res­ult of polit­ic­al changes on the even­ing of Novem­ber 9, 1989. That mo­ment­ous event en­abled the re­uni­fic­a­tion of Ger­many and the ab­ol­i­tion of the long­stand­ing di­vi­sions in Europe.

Fall of the Wall Be­cause of a slip of the tongue dur­ing a press con­fer­ence be­ing broad­cast live on tele­vi­sion and ra­dio, the Wall was ac­ci­dent­ally opened on the even­ing of Novem­ber 9, 1989. In a very short time, thou­sands of in­di­vidu­als from the east­ern part of the city set them­selves in mo­tion to­wards West Ber­lin and were not stopped by the bor­der patrol. People from east and west cel­eb­rated a ma­gic mo­ment in his­tory.

On Novem­ber 9, 2014, the high point of the 25th an­niversary of the fall of the Wall will be the twelve-kilo­met­er long light in­stall­a­tion "Licht­gren­ze" (Light Bor­der), which will lead through the in­ner city along the former path of the wall. Cit­izens and vis­it­ors are in­vited to walk along the streets and plazas that were formerly di­vided. Of course, we will also be tak­ing our stu­dents on a tour along the "Licht­gren­ze".

And those who can’t be in Ber­lin dur­ing the days sur­round­ing the 9th of Novem­ber, 2014, will still be able to ex­per­i­ence and learn about the di­vi­sion of Ger­many through our year-round ex­cur­sion pro­gram. After all, from did deutsch-in­sti­tut Ber­lin you can reach the Ber­lin Wall Me­mori­al in less than ten minutes on foot, where an in­tact sec­tion of the ori­gin­al bor­der for­ti­fic­a­tions can still be seen.

Students' Corner:
Why Frankfurt?

Var­shan from Tadzhikistan: "It can be said that Ger­man oc­cu­pies first place when it comes to sci­entif­ic lan­guages. And it is the same in medi­cine. I am a phys­i­cian by pro­fes­sion and would like to be­gin a career in medi­cine in Ger­many. That is why I am learn­ing Ger­man. My col­leagues re­com­men­ded did deutsch-in­sti­tut to me, in or­der to learn Ger­man quickly and ef­fect­ively. Now I see that they were speak­ing the truth. It is a qual­i­fied in­sti­tu­tion that en­joys a very good repu­ta­tion among Ger­man col­leges and Ger­man uni­versit­ies." Read more
