Mensa Littenweiler

The Mensa Littenweiler is located in the campus center of the University of Education, which is located in the southeastern part of Freiburg. Here you can expect four freshly prepared menus every day. You can choose between meat, fish, vegetarian and vegan dishes. In addition, there is a large self-service area with a salad bar, a grill, a wok and a dessert counter. A spacious terrace invites you to eat and relax outdoors. A major highlight of this cafeteria is that it is certified organic and participates in the STUDY & Fit program of the German Nutrition Society.


Students have to be resilient and powerful on a daily basis. Our food plays a big role in beeing well and healthy. To ensure the quality and to optimize of our food in the long term, we got the STUDY&FIT-Certificate from the German Institution of Food e.V. (DGE). To get the certificate the following criteria was met: 

  • Food: Lunch meals (best selection of food and meals) as well as criterias for smaller meals
  • Planning and cooking of meals: Criteria for planning and cooking lunch meals, layout of weekly meal plans
  • Lifeworld: Framework in the Mensa (e.g. guest communication)

The certificate is marked with a logo (on the right). Through yearly checkups the quality is ensured longterm.

The STUDY&Fit marked components of the meal plan are in compliance with the "DGE-Qualitätsstandard für die Betriebsverpflegung" and got certified as a menu line from the German Insitution of Food e.V. (DGE) als eine Menülinie zertifiziert and got marked with the suiting logo (on the right).

The Studierendenwerk Freiburg attaches great importance to regionality, freshness, quality, animal welfare, waste avoidance and hygiene. Here you can learn more about the guidelines of the central purchasing department.
