Study in the heart of Europe – and Germany

Germany is the perfect country to study in: world-class higher education, fascinating towns and cities, multi-faceted culture, beautiful countryside and landscapes, and a central location in the heart of Europe. A country characterised by cosmopolitanism and tolerance is also considered one of the safest countries in the world. Around 83 million people from a wide range of nations live in Germany. Many international companies have their headquarters here, and significant German cities such as Munich or Berlin are influential hubs for the global start-up and founder scene.

But there is even more that makes Germany an attractive place to study. The landscape is diverse with its seas, lakes, forests and rivers, and the leisure activities that go with it. Just about anything is possible in Germany, from skiing to hiking, cycling, climbing, rafting or sailing. Also, the short distance between EBS Universität and nearby Frankfurt am Main Airport offers ideal opportunities for quick trips to many other places of interest in Europe.

The part invites you to participate in various activities in numerous historical towns, old castles and festivals. People in the Rheingau region live where others spend their holidays. People in the Rheingau particularly appreciate the high quality of life away from the hectic pace of urban life in the Rhine-Main region. Despite the rural environment, the various cultural and leisure facilities are unique, and the infrastructure and networking are good. And if you do wish for city life, Wiesbaden, Mainz and Frankfurt are quick and easy to reach. Germany is a very safe country, even by international standards. Moving about free is not an issue – whether in the city or country, by day or by night. With its economical and political stability, Germany also offers the ideal setting for studying.

The Kurhaus is the landmark of the city of Wiesbaden

The Kurhaus, the landmark of the city of Wiesbaden, looks back on a long history. The completion of the old Kurhaus was in 1810. As the town became increasingly famous, a larger and more modern banqueting hall was needed. So the building was demolished in 1905 and ceremoniously reopened in 1907. The new Kurhaus still shines in its true splendour today.

The state capital of Hesse, with its many open spaces, parks and thermal springs, is one of the oldest spa towns in Europe. With around 275,000, Wiesbaden has established itself as the headquarters of numerous insurance companies and federal authorities. Mainz, Darmstadt and Frankfurt are considered important cities of the Rhine-Main region – one of the largest and most economically powerful metropolitan regions in Europe. Wiesbaden is a vibrant city with a wide range of cultural and leisure activities unique in the region. There is no limit to its many leisure pursuits – from the numerous festivals and markets to excursions, outdoor sporting activities, attractive swimming pools and recreational areas. If you ever fancy the countryside, the Rheingau region and Campus Schloss of EBS Business School are quick and easy to reach.
