Study location

Saarbrücken, West Germany

The Europa-Institut is located close to Luxembourg, Strasbourg, Brussels, Paris, The Hague, Geneva, Frankfurt and Berlin, all of which host significant European and international organizations such as the European Parliament, the European Commission, the European Court of Human Rights, the United Nations or NATO.

Saarbrücken as the state capital of Saarland is located at the heart of the European Union, and is closely connected to its European neighbors France and Luxembourg, holding a position as both a trade and exhibition center beyond its city and county borders. Cinemas, museums, theaters, concerts, opera, ballet – Saarbrücken has a lot to offer on many levels. Furthermore, galleries and museums open their doors to the interested visitor throughout the year. Culinary festivals also attract many visitors. Saarbrücken’s castle is also well worth a visit with its terraces that enable an amazing view of the city.


There are several accommodation options for staying in Saarbrücken. You can either rent a room or apartment in student accommodation (provided by the university), search for a room in shared student accommodation, or rent your own apartment. The Europa-Institut staff will be glad to help with your search and provides you with a list of options once you are admitted to the program.

Leisure activities

Regular excursions to European and international institutions as well as extracurricular offers such as a Christmas party, a tour through Saarbrücken at the beginning of the academic year and a summer party at the end of it form an international team out of the students. The university offers a variety of sports opportunities.
