We were really excited when our international guests arrived, because we were the first to meet them. The first minutes were a bit silent, but then everybody got warmer with each other during dinner and at the end of the evening it seemed as if they had known each other for years.
During the following days we had so much fun together. At the “Bavarian Get together” on our rooftop terrace everyone was able to try out different typical Bavarian beers and foods and could dress in Dirndl and Lederhosen.
The weekend was special for all of us. On Saturday we did a sightseeing tour in Munich and had a guided tour through the BMW Museum. In the spare time everyone had the opportunity to explore Munich by himself. Some of us explored for example Hofbräuhaus, others went shopping at Primark (we´re happy they opened in May this year) and a few enjoyed the view from the St. Peter’s church
On Sunday visited famous fairy tale castle Neuschwanstein and enjoyed stunning views. Later on, we took the cable car on top of Tegelberg. That was a great experience! We had lunch with an awesome view all over the Allgäu. Some just enjoyed their time with “Leberkäs” and “Apfelstrudel”, others needed more action and decided to try out how fast you can go in a summer toboggan run.
Campus life in Kempten seems to be very different to other universities and it was a pleasure for us to show a living campus where students have a lot of liberties and love spending even their spare time. We are used to have parties on campus several times a year and at the cafeteria even beer is sold. This seemed a bit strange to some of our guests.
