The City of Jena succeeds in achieving a perfect combination of historic past, delightful countryside, innovative research and business and young student life. This variety lends the lively university city its remarkable charm.

The city is located on the middle course of the River Saale and nestles in a landscape which has something of a Mediterranean atmosphere. In addition to the many places of interest, it has a wide range of cycling and hiking trails. There are numerous castles and palaces in the direct vicinity.

Jena is primarily famous for its innovative international research and business. It was proud to receive the title of "City of Science" in 2008.
