Berlin 

The most international, vibrant and creative startup nucleus in Germany

Berlin is Germany's largest city with a population of 3.5 million people. After the reunification of West and East Germany in 1990, Berlin was declared capital of Germany once again. There is so much to do and see in Berlin that, even as a tourist, you could spend weeks in the city and still be surprised by the varying activities Berlin has to offer. Aside from the world-famous Brandenburg Gate, emblematic Alexanderplatz and the bustling "Ku'damm," you can dive into recent and more distant German history at Checkpoint Charlie and along the remains of the Berlin Wall, at the Reichstag or the sumptuous Charlottenburg Palace. You can enjoy arts and culture and world-class exhibitions at Pergamon Museum and other museums on the Museum Island and across the city. Alternatively, you can relax in the huge inner-city Tiergarten park, in a beach bar along the river Spree or by lake Wannsee.

Berlin is famous for its vibrant, diverse creative scene, which makes it a nurturing place for artists, musicians, writers and also the media industry. Needless to say, Berlin's nightlife is one of a kind, with countless cafés, bars, pubs, theatres, underground nightclubs and parties that last all night, morning and possibly all weekend-there is no general closing time in the city. Berlin also offers a wide spectrum of renowned festivals such as the colourful Carnival of Cultures, Christopher Street Day and film and music festivals like the Berlin International Film Festival Berlinale, the Bambi and the Echo with guests from the film and music business all over the world.

Hamburg

Classy and unique: Germany's most important media industry hub with coast-life feeling

With a population of 1.8 million people, Hamburg is the second largest city in Germany. There's never a dull moment in the Hanseatic city of Hamburg: the imposing harbour and the River Alster with its many romantic canals define the maritime urban landscape. Hamburg's more modern side can be seen in the booming HafenCity, next to the traditional Speicherstadt and the bustling fish market. Beyond the city the North Sea and the Baltic Sea coast with their idyllic countryside draw those who are looking for a relaxing weekend. For those seeking a little more excitement, you will find everything a young heart could desire in the trendy neighbourhoods "Schanze," Ottensen and St. Pauli: fancy boutiques, hip cafés and clubs, culinary specialities from Portuguese cake to "Fischbrötchen"-a bread roll filled with pickled herring and onions. In the evening it's very popular to go to the "Kiez," the world-famous party strip around the "Reeperbahn." The city literally never sleeps with its traditional corner pubs, nightclubs, bars as well as a well-respected rock and pop music scene. The Beatles were not the only ones who successfully started their career in Hamburg. Hamburg also provides cultural entertainment with an overwhelming daily programme of international musicals, avant-garde theatre, opera and ballet. You will find high art and photography exhibitions in the museums, but also make quirky and bizarre discoveries such as spices, coffee, shipping and erotic art, to name just a few. Sports enthusiasts can enjoy water sports and other events (marathon, triathlon, HSH Nordbank Run) and the extensive sports facilities at Hamburg University.

Munich

 

The Mediterranean wealthy city surrounded by lakes and mountains

With a population of approximately 1.5 million people, Munich is the third largest German city and the capital of the state of Bavaria. It is a city of diversity and vitality with everything from art and culture, celebrity flair à la Monaco to just relaxing at Lake Starnberg. In Munich there's nothing you can't do. The Munich area is ideal for winter sports to the great delight of skiers and snowboarders. In the summertime you can enjoy mountaineering and hill-walking in the nearby mountains. And there's nothing more Bavarian than beer garden hospitality-Munich is famous for its local beer breweries and its speciality: wheat beer. Munich's dry and warm summer nights are particularly enjoyable for tourists and "Munichers" in the Bavarian beer gardens. When Oktoberfest opens its gates in September, all the world and his wife come to visit. It goes without saying that with FC Bayern München the city hosts one of the best football teams in the world.

Cologne

 

A gothic masterpiece

Cologne being the fourth largest city in Germany is one of the nation's media hotspots and therefore a perfect choice for Macromedia students. Private commercial stations, like RTL and VOX broadcast here and lead to an increase in TV production companies in Cologne. There is no other city in Germany that offers more TV shows and series, hence Film and TV students will have an easy job with finding like minded people and sponsors for their projects. The majority of the working population has their jobs in the creative industries and benefits from the great fairs, such as Art.Cologne at Kölnmesse, one of the biggest exhibition centres in Germany.

Besides its media focus, the city by the Rhine also offers a lot for history lovers. Due to Cologne's history reaching back to the time of the ancient Roman Empire, a wealth of architectural heritage can be found across the city with a high concentration of Gothic architecture, culminating in the magnificent Cathedral (Dom). It is therefore one of the most-visited destinations in Germany, especially during the traditional Karneval or during Christopher Street Day.
