  • City overview minus-thick plus-thick

    The city of Münster, which was founded in 793 A.D. is rich in history and tradition. However the city, which is also known as the bicycle capital of Germany, is young at heart with students making up one fifth of the nearly 300,000 inhabitants. Münster is home to the Picasso Museum, which has more than 800 lithographs by the artist - an almost complete collection of his printed works. You can also step back in time at the fascinating Muhlenhof Freilichtmuseum where rural history comes alive in an outdoor museum of some 30 historical buildings.

  • Country overview minus-thick plus-thick

    Germany, officially the Federal Republic of Germany, is a country in Central and Western Europe, bordering Denmark, Poland, the Czech Republic, Austria, Switzerland, France, Luxembourg, Belgium, and the Netherlands. It’s an ideal hub for European travel.

    Germany was a founding member of the EU, co-founder of the Eurozone and is part of the Schengen Area. The country is also a member of the UN, G7, G20, OECD and NATO. With a population of over 83 million people, Germany is the largest country in the EU and a world power.

    Germany is a top tourist location. Outside of German stereotypes of beer, bread, and Oktoberfest, you’ll find that there's more to the country than meets the eye. The capital city of Berlin, is a centre for culture. Art, film and music flourish here from the mainstream to the most underground, and you could spend years trying to see everything in this one city. The country is surprisingly cheap, and both in-country and international travel is affordable for students. With the exception of Poland and the Czech Republic, the cost of living in all of its neighbouring countries is higher, with people in Switzerland paying roughly 50% more for the same things!

    Germany has great infrastructure, a reputation for punctuality and is well connected in every area. Diverse locations such as the Baltic Sea, Black Forest, the Rhine, Ruhr Valley and Harz Mountains are just a quick and quiet train trip away. Germany also has the luxury of being one of the safest countries in the world, competing with Norway. If you are not a seasoned traveller, or if this is your first time outside of Australia, Germany is a good choice for you.

    The Frankfurt Book Fair is the world’s largest trade fair for books based on both the number of visitors and publishing companies that participate. Berlin is 9 times bigger than Paris, has more bridges than Venice, and is said to have more waterways than Amsterdam, Stockholm and Venice combined.
