For thirty years now students have been able to spend time in another European country with the ERASMUS+ program. To celebrate this milestone, the EU Office of the University of Freiburg has launched the 'I am an Erasmus student—an eye on Europe' photography competition. A small selection from the prizewinning images shows enigmatic, action-packed and dreamy moments – from vibrant aurora borealis in the heavens over Norway through magnificent railway stations in Hungary to colorful street festivals in Spain.
