Mein Praktikum in Hamburg

Von Tom Weisheidinger

Hallo, Welt! Ich bin Programmierer und darf mein 4-wöchiges Praktikum bei Arbeit und Leben Hamburg machen. Anfangs hatte ich etwas Angst vor der neuen Situation, weg von zuhause, von meinem gewohnten Umfeld und meiner Arbeitsroutine. Aber durch die gute Vorbereitung und die unglaublich nette Aufnahme hier hat sich die Nervosität schnell gelegt. Sprachliche Barrieren gibt es glücklicherweise keine, da ich aus Österreich komme und Deutsch meine Muttersprache ist. In die neuen Aufgaben konnte ich mich schnell einfinden – als Informatiker lernt man ohnehin jeden Tag dazu und muss offen für Veränderungen sein. Solange ich an einem Computer arbeiten kann, ist alles ok.

Relazione sull`esperienza di Ianos Alexandru

La provincia di Trento colaborando arbeit und leben hanno creato un progetto chiamato SWORD. Il progetto consiste in un esperienza lavorativa al estero. Il suo scopo e di fare vedere agli studenti come funziona il tirocigno negli altri paesi (

A parte il stage abbiamo fatto anche alcune lezioni di lingua tedesca per prepararci al tirocigno. Poi delle visite turistiche ad alcuni monumenti principali di Hamburgo e alter attrayione e cose interesanti.


La prima visita che abbiamo fatto e stata in Altoma che e un quartiere nel ovest di Amburgo. Come prima cosa andando sulla strada principale Ottenser Hauptstrasse abbiamo visto il centro commerciale “Mercado” dove si puo trovare una biblioteca e tanti altri negozi e posti dove mangiare bene.

A piano terra sotto alle scale si puo trovare una placca commemorativa per tutte le persone sepolte ancora la sotto.

In fondo alla rispettiva strada si trova Kemal-altum square che e un parco-plaza dove si puo giocare a basket oppure prendere il sole o semplicemente riposarsi su una panchina.

Davanti alla entrata alta di questo parco c`era un escavatore blu antiquo ma ancora funzionante visto che la manutenzione viene fatta periodicamente. Questo esacavatore e la prova che la una volta venivano costruite machine industriali pesanti.

Andando avanti, sulla via Friendensalle abbiamo visitato il centro media Zeise halls. Dentro si puo trovare un cinema in cui si possono vedere I film sia in inglese che in italiano.a parte questo c´e anche un ristorante e vari negozi per i souvenir.

Un posto che non si puo mancare e il “Fabrik” che si trova a due passi dal Zeise halls. Si parla di un palazzo con una grande gru sul tetto. Anche qui una volta si trovava una fabrica industriale. La architectura interna e impressionante e adesso dentro vengono organizzati eventi socio-culturali.

Per concludere siamo andati al porto dell´fiume Elbe. Dal punto panoramico si possono vedere tante piccolo barche e una davvero gigante. La vista e bellissima, I gabbiani volano, l´aria e fresca e pulita. Quello  e un bell´posto per rilasarsi e fare pranzo.

I’m Sabrina, a student of the 4th year at the school of graphic arts in Trento.

Trento is a little and amazing city in the in North-East of Italy and it is surrounded by mountains. Here in Trento it is very cold in winter and it often snows, indeed, the snow, in Trentino Alto Adige, it is the main tourist attraction.

My school proposed me to do an internship experience for one month in Hamburg, and I took the opportunity immediately, I said right away YES!

The reason why I said yes and I wanted to go to Germany was not just one. I want to improve my English level in using it every day: at school, at work and with people. I’m also curios to know German lifestyle: from the typical food to German’s daily routine and, in particular, I’d like to know their point of view about job and teamworks. Another reason is: I have never been abroad, I have never traveled alone and I have never did this type of experience.

I left from Trento on the evening of April 23, 2017 at 6.00 p.m. and I came to Hamburg at 9.00 a.m. I’m staying in a hostel, about 20 minutes from the centre. It is very convenient to be so close to the city.

Here in Hamburg I’m do internship about to my kind of study: graphic arts; and sometimes we organize trips in Hamburg, for example: visit the harbour, the Elbtunnel, St. Pauli, Neustadt, lake, the churches, Biergarten, Dietmar – Koel str. And Landungsbrucken.Sabrina 1

This experience was organzed for to create new opportunities by Arbeit und Leben, an educational institution that encouraging people to expand our knowledge.

I think that it is a great and beautiful opportunity.

My experience will and of May 22 and I feel lucky to have partecipate in this internship experience, indeed I thank those who gave me this chance. Moreover I’m sure this travel will help me in the future when I will write my Curriculum Vitae or will search my first job.

SWORD-Projekt from Trento

Experience report, April 2017

The province of Trento  colaborates with Arbeit und Leben Hamburg e.V. for this project called S.W.O.R.D that means “School and Work Related Dual Learning”. The project is an abroad experience and his main purpose is to show the students how the internships work abroad (

In addition to practical learning we also had the possibility to attend German language lessons as a preparation for the internship. We also made some guided tours to the main Hamburg monuments and attrKircheactions.



Some of these interesting monuments and places that we saw were:

The Ottenser Hauptstrasse street that you can find near the Altona train station. There are a lot of shops and attractions, one of them is the Mercado shopping center, where there is a plaque with the names of the people that are buried underneath.At the bottom of the street there is a park called Kemal-altum square, that is a beautiful park where you can play basketball or simply enjoy the sunlight. At the entrance of this plaza you can find a blue excavator called “Meck&hambrock”. The excavator is a prove that there were once heavy built industrial machines

Then on the friendensalle street we visited the media center “Zeise halls”. In there there is a nice cinema called “Zeise Kinos” where you can watch movies in German as well in German. You can also find a restaurant there and some souvenir shops.  Mercado Einkaufszentrum_1

Another spot that I found fantastic is „The Fabrik”. It is placed just around the corner of the Zeise halls. On the top of the building there is a big crane so you can`t miss it. Now they make cultural events inside but it was a former machine factory before. Because of that the internal architecture is impressive.

To conclude we had a walk along shore of the river Elbe. There are many boats and a huge ship. The view is awesome, the seagulls fly above you and the air fells very fresh. That was a good place to relax and have breakfast.
