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.

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.

EBS Berlin accomodation


You’ll be staying with your new bartending buddies in Hostel Inn Berlin, just outside of the central borough Mitte where the school is located. The hostel is surrounded by many green areas and is a  short 10-minute walk from Pankstrasse underground station which connects you to the rest of this buzzing city. The famous TV Tower on Alexanderplatz is just an 11-minute ride away. Live with your newfound friends, practise skills together, and have fun exploring the kooky German capital.

After-class activities

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.
