Founded in 1134, the Hanseatic City of Lübeck is situated near the Baltic Sea. With its approximately 210.000 inhabitants, it is a center of commerce, industry, and higher education that is playing an increasingly important role in bringing together the people of Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Russia, the Baltic States and Poland. Much of its architecture, dating back to the Middle Ages, is still intact in the older portion of town, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With its many restaurants, cinemas, theaters, and clubs, the city offers a variety of recreation opportunities for young people. Lübeck offers a lively art scene, plays host to Northern Film Days and is the main venue for the world-famous Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival. Because of its closeness to the Baltic Sea, Luebeck offers a wide variety of cultural and sporting activities.
Luebeck's location on the Baltic Sea is also of international significance. Long-existing contacts to the Scandinavian countries expand cultural, economic and scientific opportunities, and strengthen Luebeck as a site for higher education within the framework of indispensable international cooperation. Among students the Hanseatic City of Luebeck is considered a well-kept secret, since living and studying here take place in easily accessible surroundings, in contrast to cities with "mass universities".
The regional economy, with its connections to the universities, offers further good reasons for studying in Luebeck. The close cooperation between the universities and companies in and around Luebeck becomes obvious in many ways. The availability of traineeships, the cooperative formulation and implementation of diploma theses, research projects and possible subsequent job offers make higher education in Luebeck extremely attractive. Companies in Luebeck seek and establish contacts to the universities.
