Youthful character and a vibrant cultural scene make this renowned startup hub a young entrepreneur's dream. eLab Berlin is ideally located in the central part of the city, in the lively, colorful Kreuzberg district.

Buzzing with culture, cafés, music and street festivals, Kreuzberg is the home to many start-ups and co-working spaces – as well as iconic landmarks including Checkpoint Charlie and the Jewish Museum Berlin and Tempelhof, a giant urban park that was once a busy Berlin airport.

eLab programs are based at the CIEE Global Institute, featuring newly renovated facilities and easy access to the rest of the city.
