Where we are:
Wolfenbüttel is located in Lower Saxony. It has 56,000 inhabitants and derives its special charm
from the more than 600 medieval houses with extensive half-timbering, lots of small cafés, bars and
boutiques. Especially during summers, Wolfenbüttel offers a lot of cultural events you can attend.

Only twenty minutes away from Wolfenbüttel by either bus or train is Braunschweig
After its founding by Henry the Lion, the city of Braunschweig was shaped throughout the
centuries by the Guelphs and the Hanseatic League. The Middle Ages can still be experienced in the
winding alleyways of the Magni quarter with its small timber-framed houses or at Burgplatz square
with its stunning historical buildings.
Today Braunschweig, with its population of around 250,000, is the largest city between Hanover
and Berlin. It is an attractive city for shopping, has a lively cultural scene and is the centre of
one of Europe’s strongest research regions. Everything is easy to get to by public transport. Quite
a few Braunschweig's parks are within walking distance of the city centre and provide a quick
escape from urban life and a moment of quiet, perhaps at the banks of the Oker river. The
Braunschweig portal for tourists provides detailed information on
what the city has to offer.
Wolfenbüttel is also conveniently located close to
Hamburg. All great
destinations of their own if you are planning a day or weekend trip, these cities also have
airports. This makes exploring Europe while studying at Ostfalia exceptionally easy.
