Germany is the second largest country, according to population, in Europe and located in the centre of the continent with as many as 9 bordering European countries. The fact that almost ten percent of the 1.8 million international students that choose to study abroad each year picks Germany for their study destination (source: www.study-in-germany.de) surely implies that the country offers something out of the ordinary.
The German landscape is very varied as it stretches from the coastline in the north, over the green hills in the centre to the Alpes in the south. Since Germany used to be divided into smaller states, the country has a lot of different large and important cities with their own local traditions and atmospheres.
In the southwest you will find the beautiful cities of Freiburg, Heidelberg and Tübingen. And in the west the French influenced cities of Bonn, Düsseldorf, and Cologne – just to name a few.
The standard of living in Germany is amongst the highest in the world. This is to a large extent a result of the successful German industry. The car production industry in Germany is for example one of the world’s largest. The financial centre of the country, as well as of the entire European Union, is found in Frankfurt, a truly cosmopolitan city with the largest airport in Europe.
If you want to get a glimpse of German folk traditions and culture, Munich is the place to go. Although it is one of the most expensive ones in Europe, the 800-year old city is truly worth a visit. Make sure not to miss the world famous Oktoberfest, beginning at the end of September and lasting up until the first week of October.
