Why locals love it

At least to some people it's the most beautiful campus in Europe ;) Even if you're not a student there, you can access the area and take a nice walk. The architecture is impressive but comes from Nazi times. They've build new buildings on the campus in the style of the old buildings.

Why you should visit it

It's really beautiful. Also, local artists are sometimes allowed to place their artwork (like sculptures) either in the "frontyard" or in the back of the main building of the campus. If you are tired from walking and being surrounded by all the young and enthusiastic students you can just have a coffee at one of the many cafés.

Special tip

Perfekt Place to Ly down in the grass and enjoy some sun but don’t expect to fine decent coffee if you don’t know your way around
