Studying in Würzburg means living right in the middle of Germany. The city is situated so favorably along railway and motorway junctions that it is inevitable. With its 124,000 inhabitants it is large enough to offer everything a student needs for living. Yet it remains small enough to provide everything within reach.
Würzburg lies in the heart of Germany and Europe. Here three of the most important federal freeways, the A 3, A 7 and A 81, intersect.
Three international airports are located within a radius of 150 km (93 miles) and complemented by a public airfield in Würzburg and a regional district airport. As ICE rail intersection, city and region provide excellent rail links. The river Main connects Würzburg to the European network of waterways – equally important for the transport of bulk goods and river cruise tourists. In a linked transport system, public transport has been organized in exemplary fashion not only in the city but also in the whole district.
If you want to go from point A to point B, public transportation has the right of way. Streetcars and buses comply with the needs of the residents - and especially with those of the students.
A special treat is the semester ticket. It allows the students to explore the region by bus, streetcar or train at reduced prices. The city subsidizes the semester ticket - and welcomes students with a special gift. Anyone who registers their residence in Würzburg is granted a financial contribution to the semester ticket.
