Mensa Rempartstraße

The cafeteria in the Rempartstrasse is centrally located and easily reachable with public transportation. There are also many garages nearby for larger events requiring more parking.

This cafeteria is historically protected because of its exemplary 60’s architecture. The huge glassed-in hall and floating gallery make this an ideal location for celebratory events. Immediately next-door one finds the “Mensa Pavillon”, the “Bistro” and the “MensaBar” on different levels to accommodate all types of events.

Mensa Institutsviertel

The “Mensa Institutsviertel” is located in the middle of the natural sciences institute and can be reached easily by means of public transportation. There is also nearby parking for those who prefer to drive

The building was constructed in the 70’s because of its interior architecture, offers many possibilities to style every type and size of event. Even larger events can have a quaint feeling due to the moveable walls.

Haus zur Lieben Hand

The "Haus zur Lieben Hand“ has always been a special meeting place in the heart of Freiburg. For a while, it served as a quarters for the workers union. In 1938 they opened their doors to a welcoming public. Since 1990 the location has been a meeting point for all university affiliates. The new concept has proven that the “Casino” is the perfect non-obligatory meeting place for professors, students and guests of the university. In a totally relaxed atmosphere, one is able to share ideas while more of less still being on campus.

Catering is available in the “Casino”, the courtyard including its entryway, and with special arrangement the foyer on the second floor.


The “Peterhof” features 16th century vaulted ceilings and is one of the oldest buildings maintained by the university. In 2004 the university totally restored the cellar to what it is today. The “Peterhofkeller” is a multifunctional place for all types of events, such as: Festive occasions, reception, banquet, concerts and space for culture.

The large size of the 270 m² room is underscored by the modern lighting.

The old broken stone vaulting, new slate floor and modern concrete, create the unique character found in the “Peterhofkeller”.
