Study in Berlin
Berlin is much more than beer. Young, creative crowds, wildly diverse nightlife, and endless opportunities – it’s easy to see why people come to Berlin to learn bartending.
At the heart of this vibrant city is EBS Berlin, fitted with all the facilities necessary to become an expert bartender. With its central location and epic student vibe, this is the perfect place to master new skills or kick-start your career.Explore courses in Berlin
The Berlin school
With just the right amount of that edgy, underground Berlin charm – our school is a dream study spot for budding bartenders. You’ll train in our purpose-built flair areas, freepour zones, and at our 10 bar stations. Then, you’ll get to show off your skills at the live bar (that’s set up just like the real thing).
You'll come out of class straight into Mitte, housing the oldest area of Berlin. It's packed full of the city's top attractions including the Reichstag Building, Museum Island, Brandenburg Gate, TV Tower, and, of course, many bars. Find your inspiration and mould your bartender persona in this electric city.
A sneak peek of EBS Berlin
You’ll be staying at the Generator Hostel in Prenzlauer Berg, East Berlin's most laid-back neighbourhood. You'll get to live with your coursemates in bright, modern facilities - including a café, games area, and beer garden open for evening drinks. Step outside and find yourself in a cool, bohemian borough, with many galleries, markets, and food options to explore. Plus, if you're a keen cook or simply in search of snacks, there's a large REWE supermarket just around the corner. Like the rest of the city, Prenzlauer Berg is brimming with German history, so you can find various buildings of interest as you roam its pretty streets.
Join us on a tour of our favourite cocktail bars in Berlin. You’ll get inspiration for your own creations and see some real cocktail masters at work (some of them might even be EBS graduates!).
There’s always something going on in Berlin, so we want to give you a taste of what’s on offer. We’ll arrange a fun night out in the city for you. It could be a cultural event, a group dinner or even a karaoke night.
If you study with us in spring or summer, we’ll take you to the top biergartens around the city. And when it gets colder, we’ll bring you and your coursemates to some cosy bierkellers.
We invite an external expert to talk you through the history, production processes, and flavour profiles of mezcal. You'll taste your way through various mezcals, comparing the effect of different species of agave.
Dive into Berlin's spirit history at Mampe, the city's oldest manufactory. Former beer brewery and now liquor distillery, Mampe is the perfect environment to feel that bartending buzz. Take a tour of this stylish warehouse/tasting bar and sample different types of schnapps.
Start your Sunday right with a group brunch at our on-campus restaurant. This is the perfect way to fuel up before exploring Berlin with your coursemates.
