After a long mandatory closure due to the corona pandemic, the members of Willkommen in Berlin were finally able to meet again at the club gathering in Zollpackhof Beer Garden on 29 June 2020. They shared their stories during those challenging months in lockdown and enjoyed the nice time together under the shade of the hundred-years-old chestnut tree with the spectacular view of the Chancellery. Despite the restrictions, few activity groups were able to organize the group events online while many WiB members continued to remain in contact through various social media platforms.
The gathering was also a good opportunity to welcome the new members of the diplomatic corps and let them experience the club life personally in addition to get acquainted with other WiB members. The summer break begins with the hope that the group activities could resume their programs in the new club year.
