BIWC member Brigitte Jaeger from Austria

Photo Brigitte Jaeger 2016I’ve been back in Berlin for two years now, after spending three years in the Czech Republic. I used to be a member of BIWC and rejoined on my return. All the years I’ve spent in Berlin, I’ve always lived in Mitte, first at the Hackesche Markt, and now close to Stadtmitte. I really love this neighbourhood, even though it has become a mecca for tourists, and sometimes you just would like to kick them to one side. I travel a lot on business but when I’m not travelling, I usually work from home. Here are some of the things I recommend to do in Mitte.

Last year she was Vice-President of the Club, this year she is the IT & Web Coordinator.

In her free time, Joan set out to discover Berlin by walking along canal routes and surrounding lakes. Here are some of her favourites
