What is student life like?

The town of Mittweida is more than 800 years old. You need no public transport - everything can be reached on foot or by bicycle. There are supermarkets near the dormitories where you can shop at affordable prices. You can go to the cinema, to the open-air swimming pool, bowling lanes, or visit small pubs. Cultural highlights are classical and rock concerts or theatre performances at the university. 

Students can live very well in Mittweida. It is also an interesting place for lovers of nature. Parks in the town invite you to take a walk. Mittweida is situated in the foothills of the Ore Mountains in an area of outstanding natural beauty named "Middle Zschopau Valley". Forests and the River Zschopau (said to be the most beautiful in Saxony) characterize the landscape. You can go mountain biking, water skiing, canoeing, or roller skating in your leisure time. In the surroundings of Mittweida, you can visit the old and completely renovated Kriebstein Castle (dating from the Middle Ages), the old Castle Park in Lichtenwalde and its many fountains, the new family park "Sonnenlandpark", or the former castle of the Saxon king "Augustusburg" with its many museums inside. With their many cultural points of interest and good shopping facilities, the large cities of Chemnitz, Dresden, and Leipzig, as well as the German capital, Berlin, are quickly and easily reached by train.
