Karlsruhe: a good place to live and study

The city of Karlsruhe is an important commercial and administrative center in south-west Germany with over 300,000 inhabitants. It is situated in the Rhine valley, on the border of the Black Forest, and has a comparatively mild climate with warm summers. Its proximity to France and Switzerland offer many opportunities for excursions.

Karlsruhe and the surrounding "TechnologyRegion" is also well-known for being "Germany's Think Tank", as Europe's highest ratio of researchers can be found here. Engineers, natural scientists and computer scientists carry out state-of-the art research in many high-tech companies and well-known research institutions.

Eight higher education institutions with about 30,000 students in total make Karlsruhe a young and modern city. After studying, you can enjoy life as you wish - relaxing at one of Karlsruhe's many cafés or pubs or visiting the local cultural attractions.

Karlsruhe is also known as the City of Justice: Not only are Germany's two highest courts located here - the Bundesverfassungsgericht (Federal Constitutional Court) and the Bundesgerichtshof (Federal Court of Justice) - but Karlsruhe is also home of the Baden Constitution of 1818.

Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences is ideally located within the city’s green belt and at the same time very close to the city center (a 10 minute walk). The university buildings, library, student canteen, and residence halls are all close together on campus. Students can reach all important places on foot within a few minutes.
