A city with so much to offer
Situated on the banks of the Rhein and Moselle rivers, Koblenz is one of the oldest cities in Germany. This university city has a vibrant metropolitan flair, bringing together old traditions and contemporary influences.
Studying in Koblenz involves working hard, but it is also about enjoying student life and having fun beyond the lecture theatres and libraries. The region's lively nightlife has plenty to offer students. With so many restaurants, cafes, clubs, bars and beer gardens in the old town and other lovely parts of the city, there are no shortage of places for students to unwind and take a break from demanding lectures and exams.
Parks and green spaces, such as the Rheinanlagen, are perfect places for students to relax – in the enticing green meadows on the banks the Rhine, or by the more tranquil Moselle. The city also offers a wide range of sports activities on land and water. Why not take a ride in a cable car for amazing views, or visit one of Koblenz's many museums, such as the new Forum Confluentes?
Deutsches Eck (where the Rhine and the Moselle rivers meet), the Electoral Palace and Ehrenbreitstein Fortress – there are so many historic sites to explore in Koblenz, and they are often the backdrop for exciting events and performances. Koblenz is a great place to live and study. Here are some tips and highlights!>
