GLS CAMPuS bERLIN
the GLS campus is located in berlin prenzlauer berg, a very trendy
district within walking distance to brandenburger tor, museum island
and alexanderplatz. Facilities: 40 classrooms | 50 studio apartments |
book shop | cafeteria & restaurant | wiFi.

all 5 houses on site reflect German history: the oldest building dates
back as far as 1867, to prussian emperor wilhem i. the youngest one
was built only 1960, on debris left by world war ii bombings. all buil-
dings were originally used as public schools. in 2005 the berlin Senate
sold the campus to GLS, who modernized it, conserving as much of the
building fabric as possible.
the GLS Campus has 9000 m². Left: some of the studio apartments, right: the language school.

history
Left, the school as it looked like in the 60ies, shortly after the
Berlin Wall was built. At that time it still was a state owned
school, located in the communist part of Berlin. The district
was and still is called Prenzlauer Berg: originally a poor peop-
les‘ neighbourhood, it became a haven for artists and dissi-
dents after World War II. Then, after reunification, Prenzlauer
Berg boomed, quickly turning into the „in“ district of Berlin.

Berlin. Nicknamed “Casting Alley”, Kastanienallee is not only a popular
location for film and fashion shootings:
It is home to more than 40 bars, cafes and fashion shops featuring Berlin
