About the city
Giessen is a cozy and picturesque university town in Germany located on the River Lahn. In 1152, Wilhelm von Gleiberg built a fortress here. It was surrounded by a moat. He moved his headquarters there from Gleiberg Castle. The fortress was called Giessen. Thus, there was laid the first stone for the subsequent foundation of the town of Giessen.
Giessen is a hub in the center of Hesse. The town is very close to the motorways connecting Marburg and Kassel in the north, Frankfurt in the south, Würzburg in the southeast, Siegen in the northwest, as well as Limburg an der Lahn and Koblenz in the southwest. A ring road runs around the town. Giessen is also a railway hub in the central part of Hesse. The town has passenger and freight railway stations.
The town is famous for one of the largest and most prominent universities in Germany, namely Justus Liebig University Giessen. It was founded in 1607. Important attractions also include the town theater, which was built by the Fellner & Helmer architectural bureau. The theater hosts theatrical performances, operas, operettas, musicals, dances and concerts. The Mathematikum Museum is a quite interesting place to visit as well. This is the first and only museum of its kind in Germany, which introduces visitors to mathematics in a visual and unusual form.
Unfortunately, many architectural structures in the town center have not survived to this day due to air attacks during the Second World War. Giessen's attractions include some restored half-timbered houses. WIth the height of 75 meters, the Johannes Church is the largest one in the town. The building was built in the Neroman style in 1893. Particular attention should also be given to the Old Castle and the New Castle of the Landgraves of Hesse, the facade of the University of Giessen, Zeichhaus.
Giessen welcomes tourists and offers many options for a pleasant pastime. In addition to fascinating sights, there are enough hotels of any level, various shops, cafes and restaurants where you can taste delicious masterpieces of national and European cuisine.
