Already a comprehensive university at its founding in 1457, the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg (University of Freiburg) still offers undergraduate and graduate studies as well as professorial qualification in all important disciplines today: the humanities, natural and engineering sciences, medicine, law, and theology. This diversity also provides an ideal environment for innovative interdisciplinary studies. Many famous philosophers, top researchers, and Nobel laureates have taught and researched at the University of Freiburg. The university’s recent success in the “Excellence” competitions, 2007 for research and 2009 for instruction, testifies to its position as one of the leading universities of the 21st century. More than 24,000 students from over 100 nations are matriculated in 180 degree programs at 11 faculties.

If you’re interested in studying in a typical German university and student town, look no further. Freiburg is situated in one of the most popular vacationing regions and one of the most beautiful landscapes in Germany – between the fabled Rhine River and the romantic Black Forest. Freiburg and the region are known for their high quality of life and excellent weather: The sun shines here more often than in any other region in Germany.

But Freiburg’s international reputation isn’t limited to its status as the “capital” of the famous Black Forest: It’s also known as the “green city,” where environmental consciousness plays an important role in politics, industry, and daily life. This is also evident in the top two means of transportation in the city: bicycles and trams. The city also boasts an exciting array of cultural offerings and is an excellent location for sports fans: The soccer club SC Freiburg is one of the most well-liked clubs in Germany’s top-flight soccer league, and the nearby Black Forest provides ideal terrain for hiking, mountain biking, and skiing.
