Germany – always worth a visit!

German cities have something to offer for everyone: museums, theatres, history, new and older architecture, shopping, local and inter­national food, etc. The largest cities in include Berlin, Munich, Frankfurt am Main, Hamburg, Hanover, Bremen, Dusseldorf, Stuttgart and Dresden. However, the smaller ones too, like Heidelberg, Mainz, Würzburg, Weimar or Quedlinburg, are certainly worth spending several days. The picture shows a street scene in Rothenburg ob der Tauber.

Molekülmodell, junge Leute

Germany - Land of Ideas!

In Germany, the "Land of Ideas", we place major emphasis on education, science research and development. This makes Germany one of the most popular countries in which to study, as well as a site for state-of-the-art research and patent development.
