Study in a friendly atmosphere
Remagen is a town in the Ahrweiler district of northern Rhineland-Palatinate. The campus takes its name from it's excellent location on the left bank if the Rhine, close to the beautiful Ahr river. It is just a stone's throw away from North Rhine-Westphalia. Remagen borders the Bad Godesberg district of Bonn.
