Straubing is located in a scenically attractive region – on the Danube and in the immediate vicinity of the Bavarian Forest – with a wide range of sports, leisure and cultural activities. In a location like Straubing, students benefit from short distances as well as affordable rents and living costs.

Otherwise, a comprehensive city bus service guarantees mobility.
