Berlin International Women’s Club

The Berlin International Women’s Club (BIWC) unites women from different cultures and strives to foster mutual understanding and tolerance through cultural and social exchange, friendship and support.

We currently have about 30 activity groups organised by volunteers, catering for every interest and taste. You can learn more about the Club under About Us. To find out about our activity groups, take a look at the Activities section.

Long-time residents and new Berliners alike are welcome to become members: How to Join will guide you through the process. Our monthly morning and evening Meet & Greet meetings are your first point of contact.

Activity Highlights in September: 

Before the autumn chill catches up with us—spend some time with friends! In September your BIWC is offering:

  • A day trip to the palace and garden complex of Wörlitz, with an exhibit of works by the well-known 18th century classical painter Angelika Kauffmann.
  • A visit to “Die Arche,” with a talk in English about the history and work of this organization. Among other activities, it arranges free breakfasts and lunches, homework assistance, and vacation activities for children from disadvantaged backgrounds.
  • A bike ride from Nauen train station to Ribbeck, and then back along a different bike path. Interesting detour possibilities through the Brandenburg countryside!
  • A blind wine-tasting – everyone brings bottles with the labels covered, tastes and rates them, and then sees which bottles rate highest!
  • Guided Tour in English through the exhibition “Neighbours Behind Barbed Wire at the Spandauer Zitadelle. Learn about the World War I internment camp for up to 5,000 British men, located in the area of the former harness race track of Ruhleben.
  • An afternoon of fun and conversation at a buffet offering Chinese, Thai, Mongolian, Vietnamese and Japanese food
  • A day along the Havel, by ferry and water taxi and on foot. See the Fraenkel Garden, designed in the 1920s by one of Germany’s foremost garden architects, the village of Sacrow, the picturesque grounds of Schloss Sacrow, and the Heilandskirche.
  • A leisurely lunch with local ingredients enhancing classic and modern French dishes (chef trained at the Ritz-Carlton and Le Provencal).
