Our daughter studied for two semesters in Brussels at ULB, on a reciprocal exchange program.
Brussels is well connected to other cities, and she took full advantage of that.

Aix-en-Provence is another sweet town and good base for nearby things to see and has many many Americans studying there and being far south in France has nice weather that gets better as spring goes on.

In Germany I don't know your other destinations but Oestrich-Winkel has the European Business School. It is in the middle of a wine-growing community and the town is pretty tiny. The nearest big city is Wiesbaden, which is about 20km away by train. Although there are plenty of tourists to that part of the world (mostly visiting vineyards and summer taverns) I would worry that the town was a bit small and that there would not be enough to do during your down time. I worked in that part of the world about twenty years ago and you are very dependent on regional trains. I would look for somewhere more exciting. Maastricht is not a bad choice, it's big enough that you could find more to do plus it's very pretty.

Pal, not true. Some college abroad programs require fluency in the language. That is why I asked what languages she speaks.

Brussels also has a very cool vibe. Here for two days of workshops for an environmental org now, and again I wish I could live here.

Brussels is not on the list of options and TS prefers a small town.

Pal,
Perugia and Aix are not on the list of options, either. You're not helping TS by proposing more cities!
