About Icon About Marburg, Germany
 
The university is located in the beautiful medieval town of Marburg, along the German fairytale route in the state of Hessen. Here, the tradition and history of your surroundings will enchant and inspire you, and the friendly small-city spirit will make you feel at home as soon as you’ve arrived. The city is stimulated by an infinite and spirited source of creativity and ideas - and that in a broad range; from classical music to theatre, from museums and archives to open-air festivals, from literary circles and socio-cultural centers to the prize-winning movie cinema scene.

Marburg is located in central Germany, in the middle of the state of Hessen. Frankfurt am Main is only one hour away to the south, and from there one can connect to virtually anywhere in Germany and the rest of Europe, either by train or airplane.
