Program Description:

Hohenheim FunThe Universität Hohenheim is situated in the south of Stuttgart, the capital of the state of Baden-Württemberg. Hohenheim is the oldest - and most beautiful - university in Stuttgart. Surrounded by botanical gardens and experimental fields, the university offers a once-in-a-lifetime study and work atmosphere.


Hohenheim is one of the few campus universities in Germany, so all important university buildings, i.e. lecture halls, institutes, the Language Center, the library, computer rooms, cafeteria and the Office of International Affairs are easily accessible by foot. The city center is approximately 30 minutes away and can easily be reached by various means of public transport.

The old town of Hohenheim is about a half-hour by public transportation from Stuttgart, where students can also take courses.

Today the University is housed in a castle and offers a wide range of courses in natural sciences, agriculture, economics and business.
