Every year at the master program starts with a trip to a European city, to introduce all master students to each other. This year we choose Frankfurt as our destination for a two day visit. At first we thought there’s not much reason to pick this particular German city, but that is just because we did not know it well enough!
The first thing that strikes you when visiting this city is the river going through it. This makes for lovely views and a relaxing atmosphere. Second thing we noticed is that there are so many museums! Besides the obvious Film, Photography and Modern Art Museums, there also was a Museum of Comic Art and one about the history of media. Frankfurt made a nice impression on us, and it provided a perfect backdrop for getting to know all the students.
