Berliner Centrum für Reise- und Tropenmedizin - zur Startseite


The Berlin Centre for Travel & Tropical Medicine, also known as the BCRT, is a privately run tropical institute which offers medical advice before and after travel.

We have developed a globally unique, practical concept of travel medicine advice: our travel practices are located in outdoor equipment stores. There you can get advice before your trip and also have a vaccination at the same time.

In addition, in our outpatient department in Berlin, we offer specialised infectious diseases consultation which is visited by patients from all of Europe. There we also carry out numerous clinical studies. In the area of vaccination studies the BCRT is one of the largest clinical test centres in Germany.
