About the city
Giessen is a cozy city not far away from Frankfurt am Main. This is probably the only place in the world where you can see a monument to X-rays! The fact is that Wilhelm Röntgen was a professor at the Justus Liebig University Giessen, which was founded in 1607. Two years later, there was also opened the Giessen Botanical Garden, which is the oldest one in Germany. Today Giessen is not only the center of painting and architecture, but also an important medical center of Germany, first and foremost due to the University Hospital Giessen and Marburg.
