The city of Ulm is relatively small, beautiful and cozy, yet full of life. You can meet with your friends in one of the many cafes, pubs or parks. Events like “Nabada” (carnival on the river) or the International Danube Festival (food, craftworks & music) will get you on your feet and out and about in this medieval city with its quaint alleys and lush green parks. Our students keep telling us how much they like it here. More information can be found here.
Classes start in the middle of October, but we suggest to arrive in Ulm about two weeks earlier to organize housing, health insurance, registration, etc. If possible, you should arrive at Ulm between October 1 and October 5 between 9am and 4pm so that we can organize to meet you at the station.
