Lara Siebert

Hejsan! I am Lara, a German Newbie to Sweden and a recent business studies and German graduate from Mannheim University. Since my semester abroad in Växjö nearly two years ago, Sweden did not let me go, as I always wanted to come back. And now, I finally will: having a bachelor’s degree in my pocket and a bucket list filled with adventures, my first stop will be a three months lasting internship in Gothenburg. As much as I am looking forward to gathering experiences in working life, I am also excited about exploring this great city with all its culture, nature and people. I hope you enjoy my impressions as much as I do. Vi hörs!

Viewpoints in Gothenburg — Part 1

غوتنبرغ

Gothenburg’s charm might be hidden away in alleys, but quite plain to see at Haga, Vasa or Linné. When one walks the side streets and wanders ‘into the wild’, Gothenburg’s beauty is even more stunning. The mix of architecture, which identifies each district is something really beautiful.
