The university town of Giessen benefits from its central location in Middle Hesse, only a 40 minute’s drive away from Frankfurt/Main and its international airport. Over 30,000 students in relation to a population of 75,000 inhabitants turn Giessen into the city with the highest ratio of students all over Germany – a ‘young’city, then.

MathematikumUnique science museums like the Mathematikum or the Liebig Museum, the 100-year-old municipal theatre (where you will enjoy the Mozart Opera “The Magic Flute”), excellent shopping facilities for the entire area, and Giessen’s wide range of cultural activities and open air events add to the city’s attractions.

Its location in the Lahn River valley amidst a picturesque landscape of rolling hills makes for high-quality leisure and recreational possibilities. International visitors benefit from both the unspoiled regional landscape around Giessen and Giessen’s vicinity to the cosmopolitan attractions of Frankfurt and the Rhine Main Area.
