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 March
Get out and enjoy the early spring in Berlin with your Club’s activities!
- A presentation and discussion in English by the leaders of the National Council of German Women´s Organizations, an umbrella organization for about 60 clubs, lobbying for women’s rights and covering a broad range of interests—political, professional, religious, trade unions, sports and more.
- Share the task of cooking a meal for families staying at the Ronald McDonald House Berlin, which provides housing for out-of-town parents while their seriously ill children are treated nearby.
- Guided tour of the Käthe-Kollwitz Museum, showing some of the Berlin artist’s most important works in a beautiful villa in the Fasanenstraße, next to the Literaturhaus.
- Lunch at a restaurant that creates a “cusine logique,” combining exciting aromas, new horizons and traditional French haute cuisine.
- Discussion of the novel Anatomy of a Scandal by Sarah Vaughan, a former political correspondent. It’s a psychological thriller and courtroom drama about a politician accused of raping his assistant.
- Guided tour of the architectural highlights of Karl-Marx-Allee, a showplace street built by the GDR in the 1950s, lined with monumental eight-story buildings designed in “wedding-cake style,” the socialist classicism of the Soviet Union.
- A deli dinner in Friedenau—lovely curries, burgers, salads, etc.–with a discussion in which we share thoughts about a book we have read recently and would recommend, and one we’re looking forward to reading. A special way to get to know each other better!
- A visit to the „Lette Verein“–and institution founded in 1866, meant as an educational project for single women. It started with courses in business and textiles and later on became famous for courses in photography.
- A casual lunch with friends at a restaurant that presents new German and French cuisine with an oriental accent.
