Hallo! Ich heiße Michelle Enkerlin…
(Hello! My name is Michelle Enkerlin…)
I am a junior in Stern, co-concentrating in Global Business and Marketing and minoring in German, and I am currently studying abroad at NYU Berlin! I will be sharing my experiences with you throughout the semester to give you a small glimpse of what it’s like to explore Europe, study abroad, and-more importantly- study abroad at a site most Sterns don’t even consider!

miles on every purchase”), and everyone immediately assumed I was American even though I am German (still not sure why). Nevertheless, Berlin is the perfect city to study architecture and history (two classes I am taking)! One of the cool places I learned about in class, I went to go explore on my own. After class one day, two friends and I took the train to Teufelsberg (Devil’s Mountain), which is an artificially made mountain made from all the rubble of the destroyed city following WWII. During the Cold War, the Allies built a radar station on top of the fake mountain to spy on East Berlin and the Soviet Union. After the fall of the Berlin Wall, it was left abandoned and covered in graffiti by artists. Definitely eerie and mysterious, but well worth the hike.
