My Karlsruhe – photo project 2016

New City – New People – New Adventures

The PHOTO PROJECT -MY KARLSRUHE- emerged from the internship program of the der City of Karlsruhe and its partner cities. The FOCUS of the project was on capturing the city of KARLSRUHE through different, young and curious eyes, thorough the perspective of innovative students! Constructions sites, people, food and a lot more were captured - our thanks go to all of those, who showed us Karlsruhe through the lens of camera.

Daria Pavelescu, intern of the City of Karlsruhe:
I came to Karlsruhe to do a 4-week internship. I shared this experience with 21 students from 7 different countries. The first week was very interesting but also very challenging, because we are all International students from different countries. The strategical layout of the streets (that you can see the Palace from every angle) was very interesting and very helpful for me. The people from here are very nice, also helpful, which made the situation easier. We had also a full schedule, almost every day was filled with activities, which brought us together. The communication worked almost every time, despite the difficulties with the German language! I think we understood each other very good and I hope these memories and connections are carried on in the future of the partnerships!
