Univ. of Hohenheim - Baden-Wuerttemberg Exchange
The origins of University of Hohenheim date back to the year 1818. A remarkably high quota of foreign students throughout the 19th century established the early international reputation of Hohenheim. In 1967 the former "Agricultural College" was designated "University of Hohenheim" (cf. constitution). Out of the tradition of natural, agricultural and economic sciences a modern combination of subjects evolved.
In a unique campus environment around the 200 years old Castle, 5.500 students are currently enrolled in the research intensive and internationally focused university. Hohenheim Castle is the focal point of the university campus. Some facilities are also available to the general public, e.g. botanical and exotic gardens and three museums. Liberal art activities play an important role in campus life.
