Study abroad in Freiburg, the sunniest and warmest city in Germany. It’s easy to take advantage of the sunshine and hike up to the Schlossberg tower for the view or explore the many Black Forest trails that are easily accessible. Immerse yourself in the vibrant student culture of this friendly and welcoming city, where students are one sixth of the population.
It is impossible not to fall in love with Freiburg and its curving cobblestone streets, medieval architecture, and beautiful cathedral. With its progressive mindset and small-town provincial charm, the city shows a remarkable commitment to the environment and sustainability and is small enough to feel like home. Ready to perfect your German language skills or study sustainability in Germany’s environmental capital? Freiburg is the place for you.

At my home institution, some know me as a writer or performer, mostly through slam poetry. I knew I wanted to continue it in some capacity while abroad and I actually found a slam team at the local college but unfortunately, they only spoke German. After that, I decided that the best way to keep writing was to do just that, keep writing, and confine my spoken words to a sheet of paper. This is the mini series of short poems that I have crafted this semsester along with photo accompaniment.
In my last post, I wrote of my effort to see more than the top tourist attractions in the cities that we experience. The results of this effort have been immensely rewarding. I will carry these stories and friendships with me for years to come.
