17. What about sports and exercise opportunities at Freie Universität Berlin and beyond?
Freie Universität Berlin offers a broad assortment of intramural sports and recreational activities for which you would be eligible to register, but you need to keep in mind that the U.S.-style semester schedule used by FU-BEST does not really coincide with the standard German semester calendar as used by Freie Universität Berlin. The university does not have the kind of exercise/recreational sports facilities common to most institutions in the U.S. However, the Lankwitz Campus also offers a fitness studio option. There are also a number of public swimming pools in the city, both indoor and open-air. Furthermore, joggers will enjoy Berlin’s many parks and the forests located on its outskirts.
