Moving to a new country, especially if you don’t speak the language, can be overwhelming. To help alleviate some of that, we’ve compiled a few lists of essentials: who to call in an emergency, where the urgent care clinics are, as well as rec- ommendations on where to eat in the city and where to buy furniture. Hannover is an great city to live and work in, and our school is situated at the center of this vibrant mid-sized city, adjacent to Europe’s largest ur - ban forest (the Eilenriede) and at the top of the beautiful Maschsee lake where sailing, rowing and running occur just a stones throw away. This university city is culturally rich with numer- ous museums, excellent shopping and is a hub for rail links to cities all over Europe with Berlin only an hour and fifteen minutes away.

Hannover is the hidden jewel of Northern Europe with a leafy urban standard of living unparalleled in affordability and public transport access with nature all around. Although Germany is known for its high taxation and bureaucratic regulations, the quality of life here is superb. The health care system is excellent, it is very safe, care of the en- vironment is taken seriously, and there are many different cultural offerings to suit every taste. With gorgeous outdoor spaces, world-renowned museums, abundant coffee and bar options, out- door and indoor recreation (from open air swim- ming pools to the Opera) and numerous festi- vals, Hannover has something for everyone. We hope that this guide will help you while set- tling in and that you will enjoy your time in this great city.
