Due to the partition of Germany after the Second World War, the eastern part of Berlin became the capital of the GDR while West Berlin had the political status of an island right in the centre of the GDR until the German reunification. Today Berlin is a federal state, the largest city in Germany and capital of the Federal Republic of Germany, and the undisputed centre of its region, the federal state of Brandenburg, which surrounds the city.

  • Strom

    Electricity

    From Turbine to Socket

    You realise how important and self-evident electricity has become in our everyday lives only when it is no longer there. At home, household appliances run by electricity would not work anymore. The refrigerator would not cool anymore, the heater would not heat anymore. No washing machine, no telephone, no television, no game consoles – and, of course, we would suddenly be plunged into darkness if the light went out. Even a flashlight would not help because it works with electricity as well even though this electricity does not come from the socket but from a battery. Without electricity we would actually be in the dark.

  • Sicher zur Schule

    Safety on the Way to School

    Beware of Road Traffic

    You go to school to learn. But actually, learning starts earlier, namely on the way to school. When you set out from home on your way to school, you become a road user – just like all other pedestrians, cyclists, cars, lorries or buses. And all road users must take care that no accidents happen on the roads or pavements. As a road user you must be attentive and, if possible, always keep an overview of where you are standing, going or driving – and of what other road users are doing or maybe planning to do. You have to be careful and always take into consideration that perhaps another traffic participant is not being attentive. Thus you can avoid accidents. And eventually you must show consideration for other people using the road or pavement.

    The federal state of Bremen is located in the northwest of Germany and entirely surrounded by the federal state of Lower Saxony. As one of the three city states the federal state of Bremen is not only the smallest German federal state but comprises two cities, the city of Bremen and the city of Bremerhaven. Thus Bremen is a two-city state which is unique in this form in the Federal Republic. The probably best-known landmarks of the Hanseatic city are the Town Musicians of Bremen – after the world famous fairy tale of the Brothers Grimm – and the Bremen Roland, declared a world heritage site by UNESCO. The relatively young port city of Bremerhaven owes its rise to become a world-famous overseas port above all to the about 8 million emigrants who left Europe via Bremen from 1832 to 1974.
