Life in the university city

When looking for a university course, many young people today tend to be attracted to large cities like Leipzig or Dresden. But the university town of Freiberg is not far from these two large cities - exactly between Dresden and Chemnitz. 

With its 42,000 inhabitants, Freiberg belongs to the small town category, but that is precisely what gives it its special flair. Short distances to the lecture halls, low rents and numerous cultural and leisure activities make life in the university town attractive. For example, the city offers a cinema, museums, bars, cafés and restaurants in addition to the Central Saxon theatre (Mittelsächsisches Theater). And should you ever want to go to Dresden, the state capital can be reached in only 45 minutes by train or car thanks to the good transport connections.

Freiberg also offers attractive career opportunities for our graduates with its university, the Helmholtz Institute Freiberg for Resource Technology and as a technology and geomontan location in the field of semiconductor production and solar technology.
