Study German in Hamburg, a multicultural port city.
Nicknamed 'the Gateway to the world', Hamburg is Germany's biggest sea port and has played an important part in international trade ever since it joined the Hanseatic League in the Middle Ages. The city's maritime and international focus can be felt throughout the city in its multicultural restaurants and harbor-style architecture. Make the most of its location by taking a cruise down the Alster River where you can admire the elegant houses along the shores.
Hamburg is also known for its music scene, offering fantastic live and electronic music and having nurtured The Beatles in their early days. The city is also home to one of Europe's biggest party districts so this is a great destination for those looking to let their hair down after their German classes.
As you would expect from Germany's second largest city, there are also fantastic museums and great opportunities for shopping and dining, particularly in the trendy Speicherstadt warehouse district. If you fancy escaping the city center one afternoon, outdoor activities and water sports are popular at Aussenalster, a lake surrounded by lush gardens on the city's outskirts.
