Small but nice – Studying in Peine
We want to hear from our students what they like most about where they are studying. Today, Nils tells us what makes Peine so special during the winter semester.
I especially like the atmosphere during the Christmas season where I’m studying. Peine has a beautiful downtown area, and if you go there at night on the first snowfall, it’s just fantastic. You have everything you need in Peine, but that’s not what makes this city special – it’s the warm and open people you meet, who take time to have short conversations.
The best place in Peine …
… To study: Library
Peine has a small library, but since it is located exactly between Hanover and Braunschweig, the libraries of the two cities are also easy to reach by train.
… To shop: Schichtwechsel, Modemarkt, Männermode
… To get into the Christmas spirit: A walk through the city centre
In my opinion, the best way to get into the Christmas spirit during the wintertime is a walk through the city centre, where the decorated trees sparkle and lanterns light up the many old houses.
… To go out: Härke Ausschank, Hemmingway and Cafe Zeit
… To think: Herzberg
My favourite place: Back Lounge by Pano
My favourite place in Peine is the “Back Lounge by Pano” on the market square. They have the best coffee in town! The cafe has a great ambience: the staff are friendly and greet you with a smile, and they have delicious snacks that you can enjoy in peace.
