Hamburg has a high quality of life to offer with numerous parks, a major European port, the Hafen-City district and proximity to the waters of the Elbe River and the Alster, not to mention the North and the Baltic Seas. Another popular attraction is St Michael's Church, which has a stunning view of the city. One can also explore and experience first-hand the splendor of past eras of economic prosperity in the UNESCO world heritage site of the former free port area known as Speicherstadt or Warehouse City. A stone's throw away from the Speicherstadt is the city's new landmark concert hall, the Elbphilharmonie, and in the evening the famous Reeperbahn invites you to an enjoyable night out. A wide and varied range of cultural and sporting events is on offer at a total of 60 theaters, over 100 music clubs, around 60 museums, about 280 music publishers, and over 30 mainstream and art house cinemas.
Many parks in and around Hamburg like Planten un Blomen, the Alsterpark, the Stadtpark, and the old Elbpark provide recreational opportunities in bustling downtown Hamburg. In 2011, Hamburg was named the European capital of the environment for of its extraordinary achievements in the field of environmental conservation and sustainable development. Notable events such as the Port's Birthday, the Cruise Days, the Hamburg Marathon or the Night of Knowledge define the profile of a city where something is always happening.
The NIT is located on the campus of the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH), offering students a perfect opportunity to combine study and life.
The TUHH campus is a place of pulsating ideas and encounters. Lectures, concerts, parties, company presentations and much more enrich the cultural atmosphere. There are many groups you can join to make music, sing or put on plays. Join the water sports group to canoe or the Academic Sailing Club to cover greater distances by yacht. The cosmopolitan make-up of the student body encourages intercultural exchange. Student members of StudIO, the Student International Organization, regularly present the cultures of their countries of origin. And all TUHH students meet with friends and relations at the annual Sommerfest or summer festival.
The TUHH and the NIT benefit from direct connections to the public transportation system. Take the S-Bahn and you are only 15 minutes away from downtown Hamburg and the second-largest port in Europe.
