Studying in Zwickau

The automotive and Robert Schumann city of Zwickau also offers many pleasant and interesting sites for students. Our city, which has been largely preserved historically, gives space to stroll, linger and communicate. Events like the city festival in August, in the town hall or in the "Old Gasometer" and other events attract young and old visitors from near and far year after year. And even if we cannot compare ourselves to Berlin, Hamburg or Munich - even the pub scene has developed well in recent years.
