Frankfurt-skyline

A warm welcome to the great city of Frankfurt, home of the Frankfurt Spring School and a multicultural hub of opportunity.

We are extremely happy that each of you is joining us for this fantastic learning experience in 2019. Aside from the Spring School course, we’re keen to ensure you have wonderful experience in Frankfurt and make the most of your time in the city. Frankfurt is not that huge – at least if you ask the locals. Visitors might think differently, even so they’ll soon discover the charming and intimate sides of the city.

To help you find your way to the Frankfurt Spring School, have a look at the following map. The three main locations for your courses are a bit spread out, but easy to reach by public transport. You’ll find clickable links to the locations on Google Maps below.

Goethe University Frankfurt (Campus Riedberg)

A good portion of the Spring School training program occurs amongst the international research hub that is the biological sciences department of Goethe University Frankfurt, a century old University renowned for its quality. It’s largest campus is found at the Northern edge of Frankfurt’s City Sprawl.
