VIDEO. Why Berlin attracts young people from around the world?

Cursed since the Second World War, Berlin has become one of the most popular European youth capitals in recent years. Architecture, music, nightlife and quality of life make it a trendy city.

The fall of the wall thirty years ago did not only shake up the political, economic and social life of Germany. It also sounded the cultural and tourist revival of a cursed city since the Second World War.

Berlin has become a trendy capital. Without doubt even one of the trendiest in Europe. Of those where you have to go. The city continues to attract new residents: 48,000 more, on average each year for five years. More than 20% of these new inhabitants are foreigners. Young people from all over the world attracted by the cultural dynamism of the city and its relaxed allure.

Its five universities and fifty institutes make it one of the major university cities in Europe today. It also attracts young entrepreneurs. Berlin has become the number one city for German start-ups. Like Zalondo, which employs 14,000 people.

But when we think of Berlin we also think of parties and electro parties. The night here never stops. Because since 1949, there has been no legal closing time for discos and bars. It's no coincidence that 25% of tourists come to Berlin to party. This represents a windfall of 1.48 billion euros per year. Tourism professionals are not mistaken in offering low cost flights and attractive stays.

The other reason for the attraction Berlin enjoys is the richness of its artistic life. Art is everywhere. On walls, in exhibitions or wasteland. The city has also been able to attract architects from all over the world who, since the fall of the wall, have been competing in inventiveness.

Finally, if the Germans are so fond of their rediscovered capital it is also for its quality of life. Green spaces occupy 40% of the city's surface, twice as much as most European cities. Not to mention the price of real estate three times cheaper than in Paris.
