Whether you are coming to Germany for your studies, a semester abroad, an internship, a language course, or a different motivation, there is a lot to do, see, and discover. Germany offers something for everyone: you decide! Living in a larger city, a historic town or in the countryside, staying in a university’s student housing facilities, sharing an apartment or renting your own flat, going out for classic opera and theater or partying and clubbing, watching a football match of your favorite German team, savoring delicious German food and beer, or tasting international cuisines—what are you up to?
Endless opportunities and extensive choices
Germany is a friendly, tolerant, and safe country. With its 16 federal states, famous major cities such as Berlin, Cologne, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Stuttgart, and Munich, its central location in the heart of Europe with nine neighboring countries, world-famous brands such as Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Audi, SAP, Siemens, DHL, Volkswagen, or Adidas, and its open and diverse society, there are endless opportunities for exploring. If you plan to come to Germany for your studies, you can find many university and degree options, along with moderate living costs and attractive post-study opportunities on the job market or in research. This makes Germany the ideal study destination and the basis for your personal success!
Exciting places and cultural diversity
Germany has a very decentralized structure, and cities across the entire country play an important role in its economy. While other countries focus on their capital cities, Germany is more diverse in that regard. Each city and region has special cultural characteristics, its own history, and its own traditions. Berlin, as Germany’s capital, obviously plays a central role with regard to political and administrative affairs. In addition, every other large city in Germany is renowned for different sectors, such as Cologne for media, Frankfurt for banking and finance, Hamburg for its harbor, Munich for food, beer, and Oktoberfest, and Stuttgart for its automotive industry (Mercedes-Benz). And yet, it’s the smaller historic towns with their charming atmospheres, such as Bamberg, Quedlinburg, Rothenburg ob der Tauber, and Rüdesheim am Rhein, that you should definitely visit during your time in Germany.
