Hamburg known as the “Free Hanseatic City” is Germany’s second largest city after Berlin, it has been in a significant position for centuries. In 1189 the city was declared as an Imperial Free City, and over time became an important trading hub in Europe due to it’s port & harbour which is the busiest in Europe and gateway to North Sea. During the 18th century, more than 6 million Germans emigrated to USA from Hamburg port, that is the reason why many US citizens have a common German surnames.
Today Hamburg is a hub for Germany’s strongest assets like Media, Logistics, Engineering, Aviation, and Banking. Hamburg has been an important financial centre for centuries, and it is the home town of the world’s second oldest bank “Berenberg Bank”.

Everybody knows what the label 'Made in Germany' means. Germany has often been dubbed a land of thinkers. This is true within the German engineering field too. Many accomplishments can be traced to individuals who originated from here. And the intellectual accomplishments of Germans have actually helped to shape the world.
For most of the 20th century, Germany had more Nobel Prizes in the sciences than any other nation, and today the raw output of German engineering consistently ranks among the world's best.

In general, Germans work really hard on any given working day. It’s not only the working class but also the people from other sections of society; you always get to see them busy either with working, or studying, or playing sports, or gardening, or strangely even busy with grooming their dogs. They just don’t like to be idle and waste the day.
From Monday to Thursday you’ll find them in a “serious & focused” attitude, be it subway stations, buses, trams, and grocery stores, you’ll only see them with this attitude.

Free education in Germany is not a new thing, right from the time east Berlin wall broke Germany is continously offering free education. Infact the first Indian who travelled to Germany for higher education was in the year 1951. There were many Indian prominent personalities who got educated in Germany.
But compare to UK, USA, Canada & Australia, Germany was never popular in India for higher education, mostly because of the language barrier and a strong impression that Germans are too reserved with foreigners.

Presently Germany is at third position in terms of popularity among international students for education, just behind the USA & UK. But surprisingly out of the total number of international students presently studying in Germany comprise a relatively good number of nationals both from the USA & UK that too with a terrific increase rate of 15% a year. Inspite of having very high ranking universities in their own countries, their preference to still study in Germany is definitely making everyone curious to know the factors motivating them to move to Germany.
