    I lived here for a summer. This city has beautiful nature with lots of parks incredibly parties/clubs, few cafes to work from and is extremely bike friendly. It's a city that is very hyped and a lot of Berliners are moving here as they are fed up with Berlin. This place is however nowhere near as packed and eventful as Berlin. It's a very calm city and often not so much going on in the summers as all students are on holiday. Overall you might have a hard time making friends but if you join the co-working space in the center, meetups and language exchanges you should be good. It's even easier if you know German as people don't speak such good English here. If you go here I recommend getting a bike and checking out the parks and also go canoeing near the river.

    Super green city with lots of cool places and cafes to hang out. young people are super left there and old people tend to be right. Prices aren't cheap in comparison to other cities in the east of Germany. Also don't expect older people to be super open to strangers, if you don't speak German. If you want a Berlinish vibe Kollwitz is the place to be. Everything is super walkable or bikeable which is amazing. Can recommend going there.
