About Stefan...

Hi there!

I'm an IT architect living in Göttingen and working in Kassel, Germany (two cities just 50 kilometers apart but belonging to two different federal states). I love to travel the world as often as possible, and I would therefore be pleased to receive cards showing the region you're living in, the town's landmarks, monuments - or whatever makes your place special. But I'm happy about every card and every nice stamp that arrives in my mailbox!

I'm also interested in photography, art (especially French impressionism), history, politics, music (I love indie rock and punk!) and sports: as a supporter of the German soccer club SV Werder Bremen and actively in the swimming pool or hiking and cycling outside. I'm part of a family of railway employees and like travelling by train very much. I'm addicted to coffee and in love with Japanese curry.

Göttingen is a city with 116,500 inhabitants in the center of Germany, known for its university, the Georg-August-Universität. In fact, it is a university with a town around. 20 % of the inhabitants are students making the city young and open-minded. As a bonus we have the highest bar density in northern Germany. At Göttingen famous scientists like Carl Friedrich Gauß, Felix Klein, David Hilbert, Max Born and James Franck were working.

The Göttingen Seven (a group of professors, including the well-known Brothers Grimm) were fighting for freedom and had to leave the kingdom of Hanover as a result. Göttingen has a well-preserved old town with many half-timbered houses, surrounded by the old city fortifications called the ‚Wall‘. Icon is the Gänseliesel (goose girl) on the old market place: When you receive a PhD you need to bring her flowers and kiss her. It’s officially forbidden by law but fortunately not prosecuted. ;-)

Best wishes from Göttingen, Germany!
