James Hanson is a Biological Science student at the University of Liverpool, England. James visited Loerrach in April 2016 with his family and travelled to Milan, Frankfurt, Zurich, Freiburg and Basel during his stay here. James really managed to capture the character of Loerrach while filming his time here which makes it a great introduction for anyone looking to move here or explore the area. 


"Filming and video editing has become a great passion of mine, especially while travelling. I really enjoyed my time in Loerrach and was amazed by how much the city has to offer, from a busy city centre to parks, rivers and even a castle. Everyone in the city was very friendly and wanted to get to know me and hear about my travels, I felt very welcomed and would love to go back and visit in the near future."
