Berlin - City of Science

Berlin - City of Science

Whichever direction you take, all roads in Berlin lead to science. By the time the electoral "Society of Sciences" was founded by Leibniz in 1700, the city was already well-known for its rich academic life. Alexander von Humboldt, Albert Einstein, Max Planck and many other names represent a great tradition. Today, with four universities, seven universities of applied sciences and more than 60 other institutions, Berlin's reputation as a 'capital of science' is well-deserved.
