Living in Berlin
What to do when you first arrive
Get a Metro Pass
The NYU Berlin Staff are very helpful with this, they will help you to locate the closest U-bahn subway station where you can purchase your "Month Pass." Make sure you ALWAYS carry your Month Pass with you! Have fun!
Make Sure You Have Your ISIC (International Student Identification Card) and Your NYU Berlin ID
You get some great student discounts as a European university student, so bring it with you when you travel!
Take a Walk Around Your New Neighborhood
Check out restaurants, and try to find your local grocery store (markt in German). Locate the nearest trams and subway stops! Berlin is known for a thriving café culture, so you will likely find yourself getting acclimated to the city while sipping milchkaffee.
Buy the Basics
Head downstairs for groceries and stop by a backerei (bakery) for some delicious German delights.
Be Sure to Check in With Your Parents
This seems obvious, but for some reason people forget. Just do it.
