One of the best parts about studying in Germany is how easy it is to travel especially within the country. At the university in Mannheim the semester ticket that you buy allows you to travel to a ton of regional places which makes exploring easy especially when all you have to do is to hop on a train and go. Germany has to be one of the most beautiful countries that I have been in and I have had the pleasure to travel and see some parts of the country I might have missed if I hadn’t chosen to study here such as the small towns that are absolutely beautiful but are not necessarily a tourist location. Germany is also great for out of country travel due to its central location in Europe so you can really explore and see a lot of new places. If I had the choice to do this over I would still choose studying abroad in Germany.
