“I love studying in Konstanz because I love going for a swim after lectures or taking a stroll through the city centre. In the summer it’s like being on holiday here, you can go swimming, canoeing, stand-up paddelboarding or sailing. In the evening, you can take a walk along the harbour promenade or have a beer or two in the university’s beer garden.

The Christmas market in winter is also lovely, or you can warm up with mulled wine on the campus. In no time you are in the Swiss or Austrian mountains for hiking or skiing, and in Konstanz there are so many lovely places to discover, such as the World Heritage Site Reichenau Island, Mainau Island with is abundance of flowers, or the cosy bars and restaurants in the city centre. For me it’s absolutely true: Living where others go on holiday.”
