Join the Summer University and visit:


How much Italian will you feel when you walk by our "Little Venice" or small "Italian" alleys? Find yourself in the most romantic city of Germany - in a paradise of beer, sausages, and brezeln. Show us how much Bavarian you are and beat us in flunky ball and beer pong. At least - you didn't know that the biggest part of the old city in Bamberg actually is an island? Don't you believe us? Assure yourself about this and visit Bamberg!


There are a lot of ways to define culture. But it’s easier to summarise it with one word: Dresden. The capital of Saxony is one of the greenest cities in Europe. The city’s various treasures will take your breath away. Pompous monuments along the stunning river landscape are just as worth seeing as the vibrant “Neustadt” where a huge bar culture is located. You wouldn’t believe that this city was almost wiped out after the Second World War.


Erfurt's old town is one of the most intact medieval cities in Germany. Because of its numerous churches and monasteries, Erfurt was given the epithet 'Thuringian Rome'. You would like to revert to Martin Luthers’ and World War II traits? We will show you where Luther lived and also give you a little sneak peak in German History.
