    Jena is a flourishing university town in the middle of Germany. This is a young and vibrant city with a quarter of the population being accounted for as students. The University also offers language courses in case there an interest in learning German. Jena lies in the scenic Saale valley, bounded by steep hills. Therefore it's easy to immerse in nature, you go through a forest near by the house and then enjoy a stunning view of the Saale valley and the town. The city offers a variety of different sports and activities (also very exotic ones like Ultimate frisbee, Qudditch, bouldering) and is known for the annually summer festival (Kulturarena). Other interesting cities or point of interest close by are Weimar and Erfurt.

    Jena is very easy to travel to (it has a train station and a stop for long distance busses). It has a university, a lot of historical and cultural places and beautiful mountains/hills around (great for hiking or biking). It's close to Weimar and Erfurt - as you can see: lots of sight seeing opportunities.
    We live next to the city center (10 min walk) on a small hill next to the forrest - perfect view guaranteed.
