    Bremen is my home town and the city I spend 17 years living and growing from and with it. Studying at Jacobs gave me the chance to show friends from all over the world beautiful places in Bremen and their surroundings they have never seen before. From my own experiences, I enjoyed, in my 2 years of traveling after high school, the contact with locals, and the authenticity you get to explore. Jacobs is the perfect place to meet open-minded people that are aiming memories you will never forget.
