    Wels is one of the most charming cities in all its seasons. It is a very international city in which students from all over the world come to study and make friends. Wels is a small city so is very easy to reach the university, free-time activities like sportfields, swimmingpool, Ice-skating, bars, etc. The Traun River is crossing Wels and this makes it really amaying to walk/run/bicycle along the river. In the summer is very nice to swim with friends and make a picnic in front of it.
    Wels is just 12 minutes by train from Linz, the second biggest city in Austria. Some students live there because is really nearby and there are even more options for shopping, free-time activities and so on. The public transport in Austria functions very well, all the trains are normally on time and you can get to see all of Austria.
