About Marburg

Marburg is a medium-sized town with a population of c. 80,000, and lies in the heart of Germany, just one hour north of Frankfurt, Germany's major airport. Nestled in the Lahn valley and overlooked by an old castle, it is the archetype of a medieval German town. Founded in 1527, the University of Marburg (in German "Philipps-Universität") is the world's oldest protestant university, looking back at an impressive research tradition. Its more than 18,000 students dominate city life, rendering Marburg a young and lively place, a typical German "Universitätsstadt" (university city).
