The Venue: our Faculty

The French-German-Summer School takes place at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the University of Leipzig. The Faculty of Veterinary Medicine is one of five veterinary educational institutions in Germany and one of 14 faculties of the University of Leipzig. Our campus is located in the southeast of the city of 600,000 inhabitants, only a few kilometers from the city center.

How to get there:

By plane Leipzig-Halle Airport is about 30 minutes by car from the city centre. Every half hour a shuttle bus commutes between the airport and Leipzig Central Station or the S-Bahn (suburban railway). If there is no direct flight from your city to Leipzig, we recommend you fly to Berlin (approx. 2 hours by train to Leipzig), Frankfurt am Main or Hannover (each approx. 3.5 hours by train to Leipzig). There are regular trains from all three cities to Leipzig.

Interregio and Intercity trains connect Leipzig with almost all European cities.

By car you can reach Leipzig via the motorways A9 (Berlin - Nürnberg), A 14 (Halle - Dresden) or A 38 (Göttingen - Leipzig).

The S-Bahn (suburban railway) connects the faculty with all lines - stop MDR.
S1 - direction Wurzen
S2 - direction Markkleeberg
S3 - direction Stötteritz
S4 - direction Geithain
S5 - direction Zwickau

If you arrive in Leipzig by tram, you can either take tram line '16' in the direction of Lößnig - stop 'An den Tierkliniken' or line '2' in the direction of Meusdorf - stop 'Deutsche Nationalbibliothek'.
