In addition to theoretical learning, the students are also granted access to the United Nations City in Vienna, the European Parliament of Strasbourg, the European Council and other institutions for practical learning. With the explanation of the staff, the students experienced the solemnity and sacredness of these institutions and understood the establishment, development, organizational structure, functions and influence of the above international organizations in depth. Moreover, the students were invited to visit the Mirabell Palace in Salzburg, where Ms. Yan Jianzhen, the director of the Salzburg City Hall China Office, hosted a welcome meeting and introduced the cooperation between Salzburg and China. Teachers and students are offered the local specialty——Mozart chocolate.

In the midst of intensive lectures and exams, the students looked up at the mysterious and majestic Alps, listened to the Mozart concert in the Golden Hall of Vienna, watched the folk culture carnival in Prague's Old Town Square, cruised in a gondola swaying in gentleness in the water city-Venice, felt the greatness and romance of the Eiffel Tower, and indulged in the Louvre, the treasury of human art. WHUers have been all reluctant to leave for a long time.
