/trv/ 3862: How's Braunschweig/Brunswick?

Hey, i'm posting this as an American who is likely going to study abroad at TU Braunschweig in the spring of 2018. What's it like there? From what I can tell it looks pretty nice, but I'm just curious about it since the internet won't tell me everything. Thanks! Pic unrelated.

Braunschweig is one of the worst cities of Germany.

Really. It's sad, trist, boring, empty, evil.

1:30 hrs to Berlin
2:00 hrs to Hamburg
0:30 hrs to Hanover
0:45 hrs to Magdeburg
1:15 hrs to Kassel
2:45 hrs to Frankfurt
2:00 hrs to Leipzig
3:15 hrs to Cologne

Braunschweig is practically in the center of the Northern half of Germany, so you can easily reach a lot of towns by train at a reasonable price.

I've never been to the Braunschweig itself and you don't hear much of it either. Suppose you'll have an okay time there. :3

Tell me when if you drop by in Berlin.

It's so average that it has been used as a test market by various companies for new consumer goods in the past.

It has a fair mix of bankers (VW financial branch and the state owned Nord-LB), industrial workers and university students (TU and the smaller FH), but is not dominated by one of these groups as other cities.

Dialect is pretty close to standard German.
