Germany's top cities for students

Student-friendly Würzburg

As a student, it is important to us to be part of a city's life. During the course of study, leisure time is usually much more important than, for example, for families. Therefore, when we put together the criteria for students, we attached great importance to leisure activities but also to a good infrastructure. You don't want to spend the little time you have besides studying and a possibly necessary part-time job with long journeys to the nearest supermarket. And a suitable university nearby is certainly not harmful either.
Würzburg is with round about 1,205 points from a maximum of 1,400 the front-runner among Germany's student-friendly cities. Regensburg follows closely with 1,188 points. In third position, also following very closely, is Bayreuth with 1,179 points.
