Hi everybody.
I'd like to know the difference between being "in a place" and "at a place".
As I'm not a native English speaker and didn't find any good explanation when to use this or that one, I wonder if those phrases are interchangeable or just a thing of colloquial language.
Can someone please explain that to me (with some examples)?
Thanks in advance!
Greetings from Germany,

sometimes you use 'at' instead of 'to' and sometimes you use 'at' instead of 'in'. So 'I am on my way to the match' becomes … 'I am at the stadium' (going = to; arrival = at). But if you are discriminating between the place and the event you have 'I am in the stadium,' but 'I am at the match'.
