Special Info: To get to know the University or the city of Weimar it might be a good idea to visit us. There are several events where you can discover Weimar, its students as well as faculties and party at the same time. One of these yearly events is called "Summaery" [German link] - an exhibition showing what students from all faculties have done in one year. This is a very good opportunity to get in touch with students of other faculties and enjoy Weimar's nightlife.
