Marburg an der Lahn: Germany at its coolest
Studying at the Philipps-Universität in Marburg is an excellent choice. The academic offering is solid and the mix of locals (population ca. 75,000) and students (ca. 27,000) means you will quickly feel at home here in this Studentenstadt.
With no thick dialect to cut through,
the German spoken in Marburg is easy to adjust to in those first weeks. Also, you'll be surrounded by lots of students and countless opportunities for immersion. We can even set you up to live in the castle (contact us at castle [@] achievementstudyabroad.org for further information). Want to hop a train to Frankfurt or Kassel to check out what's going on there? A public transportation pass valid for the federal state of Hesse is included in the Marburg program fees (Vienna-Marburg combined and Marburg stand-alone options).
