Welcome to the Berlin International Women’s Club

Xin_Tan_AssistantMembershipSecretaryHello, my name is Xin Tan and I come from a very beautiful city called Kunming in southwest China.

In 2009, I came to Germany to study. Since then, I have completed my Master in Economics and Politics and I have learned German. In 2014, my husband and I moved to Berlin. I started to look for a club in Berlin which would help me to get to know the city and to find friends. I am so glad and feel lucky that I discovered the BIWC. I feel very comfortable in the company of the other members in the Club. I have joined several of the activity groups and I have got to know many nice ladies. This year, I volunteered to be the vice membership secretary and am now working together with Zeenat Habib, the membership secretary, who comes from Australia. It’s a lot of work but es macht Spaß!

What a city means to you depends very much on the friends that you make there.
Now I think I love Berlin!


We represent women from all around the world and from all walks of life; we have more than 300 members from 45 nations and we communicate in English. We strive to foster mutual understanding and tolerance through cultural exchange, friendship and support. We currently have lots of different activity groups which host events almost every day.

The Club was founded in 1992 and since then, we have relied on the volunteer work of our members. Please come and share your talent or skills. Becoming a member of BIWC means sharing our world of vivid cultural and social exchange and developing international friendships in the interesting, diverse community of Berlin.

Whether you are a long-time resident or have moved to Berlin recently, you are welcome to become a member.

The two monthly Meet & Greet meetings are your first point of contact. Please let us know in advance if you intend to come along: info@biwc.de. We look forward to seeing you there.


Berlin – We KEHR for You
Members of the BIWC will be helping to clean up the Monbijoupark on 19th September on one of the two Call-to-Action Days to keep Berlin spick and span for residents and visitors alike. For the fifth year running, the Aktionstage are being organised by wirBERLIN, the Paritätischer Wohlfahrtsverband and the Tagesspiegel. Berlin’s city cleaning firm, the BSR, provides all the necessary clothing and tools.
