great place to study, when you love nature and a small city! I can definetely recommand it! it has not the perfect program though, but with a lot of interesting fieldtrips and pretty much independent from company budgets.

Freiburg is amazing, I think it's the perfect student city. studying computer science is a bit harder than I thought, The professors are all big researchers but not that good of teachers. However, I still think it's just me being lazy.
