"My home for one year" Hamm by Hewer
Hamm Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 8 photos
Hamm is located in the north-west of Germany on the eastern edge of the Rhine-Ruhr area. It has a population of 190,000. It is known for wire production and was once an important railway junction.
I lived in Hamm for one year as an exchange student from January,1993. I went to Beisenkamp Gymnasium for the duration of my stay. I visited again for three months in 1996 and then again for Christmas, 1999.
Many of the tips I could possibly offer are no longer valid. Many of favourite haunts have closed and much of the city centre has been redeveloped since the time I lived there. It was a good place to live with a good community atmosphere.
The most important thing for me about Hamm was the people I met and knew while I was there. It was a great experience and my first extended experience of being in a foreign country. I`m sure I`ll be back...
- Pros:Great place to live, great people
- Cons:My favourite bars keep closing!
