The circular signature building of Campus 1 at Schweinfurt


Würzburg is an extremely vibrant student city. With approximately 133,000 inhabitants, it is one of the largest cities in the federal state of Bavaria. Lying amidst the vineyards, the climate in Würzburg is pleasant and mild all year round. Wine is part of the cultural heritage here – as proven by the many wine festivals in and around the city.

Countless landmarks and places of interest characterise the cityscape: imposing Marienberg Fortress, the city’s landmark, sits high up on a hill overlooking the city and bears testament to Würzburg’s more than 1,000-year history. The sumptuous Würzburg Residence is one of the most significant palaces in Europe and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A whole host of events, including the Africa Festival, Würzburg Docks Festival, and Kiliani Fair, take place in the city throughout the year. Theatres and museums as well as countless cafés and bars ensure a bustling city atmosphere. The event calendar for Würzburg offers an overview of some upcoming events we recommend.

In the brochure "Studying and Living in Würzburg" as well as on the website of the City of Würzburg, you will find more information about the city, studying in Würzburg and offers for students.
