Located just north of Frankfurt, Marburg is a breathtaking university town that embodies the kind of old-world Europe we all love to see. The Philipps University, which is the beating heart of the area, is the oldest Protestant university in the world, and is responsible for much of the social life and economic prosperity in the area. During WWII, all of Marburg was transformed into a hospital, and hence, was untouched by bombs and destruction. The result is a city that has been well preserved. Spired churches, gothic architecture, and tight cobblestone streets make Marburg a location sure to leave a lasting impression.

Location: One-hour drive from Frankfurt Airport.

The city of Marburg can be found just north of Frankfurt, on the Lahn River. Access to the city can be achieved by air via Frankfurt International Airport, by car via the B3 motorway, or by train from Kassel or Frankfurt. Frankfurt Airport can be reached in about 1 hour from Marburg city centre.

Business: Education, tourism, technology, and pharmaceuticals

This small town gains much of its economy from its main attraction, the Philipps University, which is responsible for the majority of jobs and businesses in the area. Biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies are also prominent, and several large offices can be found here. Additionally, being a popular tourist destination, there are a fair amount of local businesses in the form of cafes, restaurants, hotels, and shops. The Civic Hall Marburg, Conference Centre Rosenpark, and Technology & Conference Centre are the three most notable business centres in Marburg.

Culture: A city filled with young minds and creativity

Marburg gains much of its culture from the university population who enrich this city with creativity in the form of arts, music, theatre, and cinema. The Marburg City Auditorium is the largest venue for music, festivals, markets, and more. Throughout the year, up to 100,000 visitors use this space for cultural activities. Marburg is also home to countless theatres, cinemas, music clubs, and more, which can be found in all corners of the city.

Activities: See the old town and have fun by land or water

With tall mountains and the Lahn River there is no shortage of activities to take part in while in Marburg. For the water lover, canoeing, wake boarding, and water skiing are all options to be experienced. Or if you prefer land-based activities, then cycling, mountain biking, or hiking are popular options. For more relaxed ventures, get out of the city and visit any one of the traditional villages that surround Marburg. And don’t forget to take a pleasant walk through the city’s old town!
