Studying in Hamburg
We love calling Hamburg our home – maybe soon it will be yours, too! Living and studying in Hamburg means being part of a lush, bustling and booming city by the waterfront. As the second largest metropolitan area in Germany, Hamburg boasts numerous canals and waterways with 2500 bridges – that’s more than in Venice! Compared to other cities in Germany, Hamburg offers moderate living expenses combined with high living standards and a safe environment for students.
Enjoy student life!
Hamburg offers plenty of green – over 16 percent of its urban area are given over to parks and recreation while 8 percent are water, inviting you to relax, play sports and hang out. Enjoy sunny afternoons at the Alster Lake or at the harbour. And if all that water has you longing for the sea – just hop on a train and find yourself at the North Sea or the Baltic Sea within the hour.
Whether it’s a canoe tour, stand-up paddling on canals, jogging around the Alster Lake, a visit to the soccer stadium or relaxing at the beach club on the Elbe – Hamburg is rich in student attractions. Enjoy the city's nightlife with your fellow students, visit the many clubs and bars – including, of course, the famous Reeperbahn.
Hamburg has more rainy days than London and, frankly, is known for its rather questionable weather marked by rain, wind and cold. But if you think about it, rain really is just a matter of perception. After all, if it’s not raining sideways, it's just a drizzle – right?
