Day 06 – Friedensau (Germany)

11:59 pm Friedensau, Germany, SDA Church, Travel

I once again left the bike in the shed, and travelled with my aunty and uncle by car to Friedensau, the Seventh-day Adventist University located near Berlin.

It was a beautiful morning, and the fields were in full bloom. Around Berlin the roads are very straight, as the land is very flat.

My uncle commented, that Friedensau must be the only village in Germany that has a sign advertising church services on Saturday.

I was surprised by the size of the campus, as there are only approximately 200 students. However, they do offer three bachelor programs and 5 masters programs. I guess each program is comprised of a rather intimate class.

This is one of the key buildings – it houses the administration and also the chapel.

Adventist youth from around the northern part of Germany had a camp at the time I was there, and this was their main meeting tent.

There is an adventure course and climbing wall for use by the youth.

And finally, there is also a retirement village – all in all, Friedensau is a well thought out community. I think it would be a great place to study!
