The Esperanto-Stacio (Esperanto-Station) is an international meeting place in the train station of Halbe, in a nature reserve south of Berlin. 
We arrange courses, workshops, and cultural activities and we also offer our unique meeting spaces and accommodations for your events and celebrations. 

Esperanto is a language designed to facilitate international communication and cooperation. It does not belong to any nation or people but to all humans who want to use it. People all over the world have learned Esperanto and cooperate to promote international exchange, cooperation and peace. 


The Esperanto-Stacio is a privately run house serving the ideas of Esperanto and human rights. You can learn the language with us or participate in international cultural and educational projects. You are also welcome to organize your own activities in our premises. 

Our mission


Esperanto is an international language spoken by people in almost all countries of the world. The Esperanto movement promotes international understanding and peace, and Esperanto-Stacio is part of the worldwide network of institutions dedicated to these goals. Our mission is to offer modern, contemporary activities on Esperanto, other languages and cultural issues. We are also committed to democracy and human rights. As part of the cultural triangle Dahme-Spreewald, the Esperanto-Stacio is a cultural anchor point of the state of Brandenburg, together with the locations Lieberose and Luckau.



The station was built in 1865 as part of the Berlin - Breslau/Wrocław railway line in what was then Prussia.



The Esperanto-Stacio is part of a listed ensemble, which is the only place where the three types of buildings from Prussian railway history are in one place: goods station, entrance building and Kaiserbahnhof.



The ground floor now consists of three event rooms in the former station restaurant, the ticket counters and the passenger hall.



On the upper floor there are comfortable accommodations in the two former apartments of the station employees and the station master.



Halbe was famous for its brickworks. Many Gründerzeit buildings in Berlin were made from bricks from Halbe. They were loaded from the goods station building, which today belongs to the Esperanto Stacio.



The clay that was excavated here for the bricks from Halbe left behind two large holes that later filled with groundwater. Today it's our two super clean bathing lakes, just a few minutes' walk from the Esperanto-Stacio.
