2016 Winter Ball

The Berlin chapter cordially invites you to the 2016 Winter Ball following the 2016 General Assembly of the German Fulbright Alumni Association.



And what better place to celebrate: Universal Hall, a historic pumping station, is one of those typical locations in Berlin where tradition and modernity blend into a unique glamorous roughness.

We look forward to welcoming you to Berlin!

Best wishes,
Your organizing team

  3. Flughafen Tempelhof (Airport Tempelhof)
    Tempelhof Airport's main building is a historically protected landmark and a symbol of the eventful history of Berlin itself. On the one hand, it is an expression of Nazi ideology and served in World War II as a weapons production site using forced labor. On the other hand, Tempelhof is also a symbol of freedom, and the Air Lift of 1948/49 made the airport famous throughout the world. During the division of Germany the airport was the gateway to freedom for many people. Over the course of a roughly 2 hour walking tour, you will be taken to the most interesting parts of the huge building, which has a surface space of 300,000 square meters.
