    We want to thank you and your staff for your care and support. We have felt very comfortable. The house and gardens look great and the amenities added--the library, club room and work-out areas, are so nice.

    We have also enjoyed the opportunity to meet other IBZ residents and local residents at the lectures, musical programs and seasonal parties. You do a great job!

    It was so nice to spend six months here in IBZ. I had a pleasant, secure and fruitful life.

    Thank you very much for all your kind support. IBZ is a great place to stay for international researchers.

    Long live IBZ!

    I would like to thank the IBZ team for its hospitality.

    I always enjoy my time in Berlin, as I can work here very concentrated, use the great FU library and give some lectures. The IBZ offers great conditions for my work – this is why I always return.

    Also many thanks for all those great concerts and events you are organizing!

Welcome to Berlin

As the host of scientists from around the world the IBZ Berlin offers residents a pleasant and inspiring home for the duration of their stay. The diverse scientific and cultural exchange program - as well as a variety of offers in the neighbourhood - make your stay in Berlin an unforgettable experience. The club, the small library, the gym, the billiard room, the large event hall and last but not least our beautiful garden offer spaces for exciting encounters with other guests and neighbours. The surrounding area, the Rheingauviertel, will contribute to make your arrival relaxed and cheerful.

The team of the IBZ Berlin will answer all your questions regarding living in Germany´s capital and help you to quickly adapt to the new city and your new life. We are happy to support and help you wherever we can.



Things are looking up

19. May 2020

Everything is slowly opening up again and we also hope that there will be events at the IBZ this year. Our beautiful IBZ garden is now available to our tenants again, albeit not without restrictions. We must all continue to adhere to the existing distance rules.

We also very much regret that the popular wine festival on Rüdesheimer Platz cannot take place as usual this year. The beautiful summer evenings from our past years are still well in our minds and we very much hope that we can enjoy this community experience again next year.

We all miss the human contact and our event team and artists are looking forward to seeing you all again soon!

As a first lifesign, we hope to be able to offer you a live stream from the IBZ garden at the Fête de la Musique. This will clear up in the next few days. As soon as we know more, we will of course inform you.

Livestream for Fête de la (Haus-)Musique!

It's starting again - if only virtually for now!

19. May 2020

On June 21 The Fête de la Musique traditionally takes place, although this year, owing to the Corona crisis, in a different form. In 2020 it means: livestream instead of live stage.

On Sunday from 6:00 p.m. we will therefore stream two concerts from our IBZ courtyard garden. Look forward to acoustic soul with ABSTRAK JAZ and French chansons with SALTIM'BAND. The address for the stream and more information about the artists can be found under "Events".

Cancellation of November Events

29. October 2020

Due to the new measures decided yesterday by the federal and state governments to contain the exponentially increasing Covid-19 infections, we unfortunately have to cancel all of our events planned for November. We have to wait and see if there can be events again in December.

Get through the lockdown safely
& Stay healthy!

Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

23. December 2020

A crazy year is coming to an end. As an international meeting center and guest house, the global pandemic also has hit us hard. Due to travel restrictions and border closures, many of our guests had difficulties arriving or departing, and our program of events could not take place as usual.
We would like to thank all tenants, artists, partners and friends who, through their understanding, their commitment and sometimes their willingness to improvise, have helped us to master these difficult times so far.
Even if the situation may not change at once after New Year's Eve, we hope that in 2021 we will be able to overcome the pandemic and return to a normality in which one thing above all will take place again, for which the IBZ stands: meeting each other.
With this in mind, we wish you all, despite the special circumstances, a peaceful and relaxing Christmas and a happy new year. Stay open, stay curious and most importantly: stay healthy! We look forward to seeing you again in 2021!

Your IBZ Berlin team

Happy New Year!

7. January 2021

We wish you a Happy New Year and for all of us that it is the year in which the corona pandemic will finally be history!

Unfortunately, it still has us fully under control at the moment, and so our planned music and lecture program had to be canceled again until at least the end of this month. We very much hope that events will soon be possible again, at least to a limited extent.

Unfortunately, no one can say with certainty at the moment when that time will come. In any case, we will keep you up to date and hope that you will remain loyal to us despite the long mandatory break and that we will meet again at an event as soon as possible.

Your IBZ Berlin team

Fête de la Musique 2021

20. January 2021

At this time, when we miss cultural events so much, this is something to look forward to:

We are very happy that the Fête de la Musique will take place again this year as usual on June 21st and we will of course be happy to participate again as IBZ - in which form, whether with a live audience or/and as stream, we have to wait and see.
