Studying in Weimar

One can attain an overview of Bauhaus-Universität Weimar and the city easily even though they are not necessarily small. One can study here far away from the hectic atmosphere of the big city. Everything can be reached quickly in Weimar as it is a pedestrian-friendly city. It is worth noting that Weimar is well connected by train. Weimar-Berlin: approx. 3 h, Weimar-Munich: approx. 5 h, Weimar-Frankfurt/Main: ca. 2.5 h, Weimar-Hamburg: approx. 4 h.

Weimar offers a vast cultural landscape: Theaters, museums, art exhibitions, galeries and not least student projects shape it. Studying in Weimar is more than just taking courses - just like Goethe and Schiller did, you will study art, culture and life.
