Studying in Freiburg

Freiburg’s Universities have an excellent reputation at home and abroad with rising number of international students every semester. The environment of Freiburg contributes to this rise and a study suggests that every second German would like to live in Freiburg.


In contrast with other university cities, Freiburg is a student city with every sixth citizen of Freiburg being enrolled at a university. Around 40.000 students bring life to the city of Freiburg. The Albert-Ludwigs-University, located in the middle of the ‘old town’, is the largest employer in the region.
