Welcome to the Berlin International Women’s Club

The Berlin International Women’s Club (BIWC) was founded in 1992 after the fall of the Berlin Wall when the international community in Berlin was growing. The club’s language is English.

  • We unite women from different cultures who speak many different languages.
  • We are proud to have 261 members from 51 different nations.
  • We strive to foster mutual understanding and tolerance through cultural and social exchange, friendship and support.
  • We currently have a variety of 30 activity groups organised by volunteers, catering for every interest and taste.

Come and share our world. Take the opportunity to develop international friendships in the interesting, diverse community of Berlin.

Long-time residents or new Berliners are welcome to become a member. Our two monthly Meet & Greet meetings are your first point of contact.

We look forward to the upcoming visit of seven members from the Maltese AIWC, including Caroline, who is also a member of the BIWC. An exciting programme has been organised by BIWC’s International Coordinators Chris and Robbie. Highlights include:

  • Drinks @ Monkey Bar & Dinner @ Neni in the Bikini Haus
  • A Berlin city boat trip followed by a visit to Schloss Charlottenburg, including a palace & garden tour and a concert
  • A visit to the Sanssouci Palace in Potsdam, lunch @ Zur Historischen Mühle. In the evening a pot-luck dinner @ Jacqueline’s house
  • A sightseeing tour on the Berlin Bus #100, lunch @ Refugium on the Gendarmenmarkt and farewells @ Käfer Restaurant in the Reichstag

Our members are welcome to attend these activities after registering with the Coordinators. This will surely be a memorable visit for our Maltese guests!

In October, there’s a lot in store for our Berlin members:

  • There will be visits to the exhibition El Silo de Oro @ Gemäldegalerie, the cultural diversity exhibition in Westfälisches Viertel, the Bauhaus Museum Dessau and Alba Recycling
