High above the basin of Stuttgart, right on the campus of the district Stuttgart-Vaihingen. Here you find Hochschule der Medien (HdM). On the outskirts of the state capital of Baden-Wuerttemberg, students can enjoy the conveniences of the Swabian region. Resting areas are in short walking distances from the campus: „Rotwildpark“ with „Bärenseen“ and „Bärenschlössle“ ensure a vivid connection to nature.

The royal palace and former hunting lodge „Schloss Solitude“, one of the outstanding architectural ensembles of the 18th century, is just an eight minute’s drive away from HdM. The nearby public outdoor swimming pool in Vaihingen is the place to chill out on hot summer days.
The heart of Stuttgart with many possibilities to stroll around can be reached in just three S-Bahn stations.
Stuttgart’s nightlife flourishes especially at „Theodor-Heuss-Straße" or at „Hans-im-Glück- Brunnen“. Gifted and famous German musicians like Cro, Fanta Vier, Massive Töne or Max Herre launched their careers right there.

Stuttgart’s special charm unfolds best in the numerous pubs and bars in the city center. The popular Schlossplatz including the imposing palaces „Neues Schloss“ and „Altes Schloss“ nearby are a pivotal part of life in Stuttgart. Culturally, Stuttgart has a lot to offer: The State Gallery and
the Art Museum, the State Theater with plays, ballet and opera as well as various cinemas enrich the life in Stuttgart.
In order to be able to afford all these activities, the state capital offers attractive jobs and internships at locally based companies such as Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Bosch, Klett, the SWR or Motorpresse Stuttgart and numerous smaller Start-ups. „Killesberg“ in the north of Stuttgart or „Rosensteinpark“ in Bad Cannstatt make it possible to compensate job and learning stress with ease. Both parks invite you with their spacious green areas and gardens to stroll. At „Max-Eyth-See“ relaxing in the summer is rather easy. Also worth a trip is „Karlshöhe“, a hill with a great view over the rooftops of the south or west of Stuttgart. The famous „Stäffele“ - old, steep stairs build by former winegrowers, the vineyards and the beer garden on top surely make it a rather special place.

Some of the most important flagships of architecture in Stuttgart are „Stuttgarter Fernsehturm“, the zoo „Wilhelma“, „Mercedes-Benz Museum", „Weissenhofsiedlung“ or „Cannstatter Wasen“. Stuttgart's location in the Neckar Valley, surrounded by vineyards, as well as its proximity to the Swabian Alb and Lake Constance offer attractive outdoor leisure activities – both in the summer and in the winter. In addition, the surrounding cities, such as Esslingen, Tübingen or Ludwigsburg, are definitely worth a visit.
