Roc:

“One of the things that I do most is sport. So I like to run a lot. I think Weimar is a great city to do this because you can run one kilometre and you're already out of the city and there are  green spaces everywhere.”

Roc is from Spain. He studies Orchestral Conducting at the University of Music FRANZ LISZT Weimar.

Weimar – Small but Beautiful

This charming city on the Ilm is a Mecca for design fans with a livelyart and culture scene. It also caters to those who enjoy pub-crawling, offers affordable rents, short distances and cretive student initiatives. Instead of going to a large nightclub, people here dance under canopies, build soapbox carts or organise literature festivals. Those who prefer to fly under the radar, however, have their work cut out for them. In Weimar, everyone knows everyone and you'll run into people you know all the time – yes, even your professors.
