Germany's capital city is awash with historic sites of importance and from the Brandenburg Gate and the Potsdamer Platz to Museum Island and the Berlin Wall, student tours will find infinite excuses to visit.

University tours interested in media studies are absolutely no different and a quick trip to the cyber-fortress of the Sony Centre will leave you in no doubt as to Berlin's enthusiasm for modern mediums of entertainment and the arts.

Cinemas, including an IMAX, enable shoppers to seek solace away from the numerous shops and outlet stores however, for visiting media studies students the heritage of the Filmhaus will no doubt be a larger draw.

International film festivals, cultural seminars and presentations by directors, actors and producers have all taken place at the Filmhaus and the lectures held by the German Film & TV Academy are highly revered.

Still under the same roof is one of Berlin's most famous film museums, the Deutsche Kinemathek, which holds numerous examples of German film making, including an expansive exhibition on the actress Marlene Dietrich.

From the propaganda films of the Third Reich to a history of cinema during National Socialism, this is a fascinating display and a must for all visiting media studies trips to Berlin.

Media influence, under a different guise, can be found under the banner of Axel Springer AG which is one of Europe's biggest multi-media corporations and is responsible for publishing well-over 200 newspapers and magazines as well as nigh on 100 on-line alternatives.

A visit to the printing house which produces both the Bild and Die Welt will certainly throw light on just what it takes to keep such widely-read editions in circulation.

Finally, another 'must visit' on any university media studies tour of Berlin has to be the TV & Radio production studios of RBB which is basically the German equivalent to the BBC. Behind the scenes tours will allow students to quickly ascertain what is required to get a show to air as well as finding out more about the heritage and the role of RBB Broadcasting House.

Berlin is a really young and dynamic city which makes it perfect for visiting students wishing to discover more about the media and its relationship to Germany and the rest of Europe.
