Description: Germans are well-known for their beer; however, even we Germans like to meet up for a cup of coffee now and then. Join us on a Monday for a Kaffeeklatsch – literally: ‘coffee (and) gossip’. You don’t like coffee? Gossip isn’t your thing? No worries. We’re very liberal when it comes to choices of beverages or conversation topics. You just bring yourself and leave the rest to us.

Who should attend:
You’ve just started learning German and you would like to practice some more? You’ve been to Berlin once and want to know now if your impressions were only based on stereotypes? You simply like all the friendly people at the German department and you would like to get to know them better? Then this is the place and the time for you!
