University Cities
Göttingen - A Student Town Rich in Tradition

Göttingen calls itself the “city of knowledge” – and for good reason. It is home to one of the oldest universities in Germany. Its famous alumni include the mathematician Carl Friedrich Gauss and the politician Otto von Bismarck. Although Göttingen is proud of its traditions, it has remained a young and hip city.
