Weekend trips to the Baltic Sea and Copenhagen!

Free weekends are for travel... & that's exactly what we did! During the last two weekends before "real" semester classes started in Berlin, students took advantage of free time to go and travel. A decent chunk of IES Abroad Berlin students went on the program-organized Baltic Sea trip (where we visited both Warnemünde and Rostock, Germany) for spring break. Then, I personally also tagged along to a Copenhagen, Denmark trip (plus a day-trip to Malmö, Sweden) with a smaller group of friends~ Enjoy!


Bike ride tour around the costal city of Warnemünde (Warnemünde is a north-German city that touches the Baltic sea):

Strolling along the beach:

Döner/Falafel-eating was a must:

Rostock-- Warnemünde's neighboring city. The main square/ market area:

More sun-embracing and park-chilling:

Aaaand on to Copenhagen.... This was the Danish Design Museum (feat. a nice variety of chairs):

Copenhagen canals near Nyhavn. The colors of the buildings were very cute:

Took a less-than-half-an-hour train to get to Malmö, Sweden. We stayed for around 5 hours then headed back to Copenhagen. This was us merely roaming around the town:

Aesthetically pleasing Lutheran(?) church in Malmö:

<p>Hallo! I&rsquo;m Nina. I am a second-semester junior at American University in Washington D.C, where I&rsquo;m majoring in International Relations and minoring in German. While California&rsquo;s home for me, I also grew up in Frankfurt for 7 seven years of my life&mdash;making it all the more exciting to return to Germany this spring semester! You can find me reading, doodling &amp; crafting, taking photos, expanding my food horizons, meeting new people, and seeking out all-things-adventurous&hellip; I especially appreciate finding cozy hole-in-the-wall locations in whatever city I&#39;m in. I&rsquo;m stoked for all the experiences and stories Berlin has in store. Stay tuned.</p>
