Winterliche Grüße aus Berlin!
As Winter comes to Berlin we are reflecting on a productive semester filled with several new experiences for our Language & Culture students. We went on an overnight trip to Dresden and celebrated a nice Thanksgiving Dinner together.
A vist to Dresden
On November 22 CIEE Language & Culture Students went on an overnight excursion to Dresden where we visited the VW manufactory, climbed up the cupola of the famous "Frauenkirche", visited the museum of military history and had a wonderful Thanksgiving Dinner!
The statue of Martin Luther in front of the ruins of the Frauenkirche in 1958.
In 1945 Dresden was leveled by allied firebombing and later lay in ruins during decades of East German communist rule. Since reunification much of the city center has been painstakingly rebuilt to its original Baroque splendor. During a city tour guided by a local art historian we learned a lot about the history of the city.

We look forward to hosting more of your students in coming semesters!
