Mensa Rempartstrasse

In our largest refectory directly in the city center, behind the main building of the university, we offer you a varied and fresh range. Every day you can choose between vegetarian, vegan and meat dishes from a total of five dishes. In addition, there is a salad buffet and the bistro on the first floor. There you will find a front cooking area, grilled meat and fish, Asian dishes from the wok, an action counter and an antipasti buffet. The Mensa Rempartstraße is BIO-certified and is the only refectory of the Studierendenwerk Freiburg, which offers a daily dinner, as well as lunch on Saturdays. 

Coffee afterwards can be found in our café bar, which is located on the first floor. The Mensa has a large outdoor area, which invites you to eat, drink and relax on sunny days. Just in time for the summer semester, the Mensa Garden opens, providing you with coffee specialties, cold drinks or a refreshing ice cream. 

For students with wheelchairs, strollers or walking disabilities, the elevator is located outside next to the main entrance and is operational during meal times. There is barrier-free access to the evening cafeteria, located in the Rempartstraße cafeteria pavilion, via a ramp from Werthmannstraße into the cafeteria garden. The ramp has a length of 20 meters and a slope of about 15° and should therefore be used at your own discretion and only with an escort.

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.

Children of students under the age of ten, who come accompanied by their parents or a parent, receive a free additional children's plate with their parents' meal. A small play corner has been set up in the large dining room where children can eat and play. High chairs for your children are also available upon request.
