    The Regensburger Staße Campus (the former Faculty of Education, EWF) is located in south-east Nuremberg, near the Dutzendteich lake. The premises are now used by the Faculty of Humanities, Social Sciences, and Theology. The Centre for Teacher Education, parts of the Department of Education and most of the chairs specialising in teaching specific subjects are all located here.

Outside of Bavaria and Germany, the first thing most people think of when you mention Nuremberg is the famous Christmas market held against the backdrop of the castle. However, Nuremberg has a lot more to offer besides medieval half-timbered houses. It is a modern city home to many industrial companies and service providers, it is an international transport hub and a trade fair centre. There is always something going on in Nuremberg: drama and concerts on both larger and smaller stages, film and music festivals, cultural events such as the Blaue Nacht, motor sport events or the largest flea market in Germany, the Trempelmarkt. A wide selection of cafes and pubs, clubs and restaurants, cinemas and several recreation areas leave you spoilt for choice when deciding how to spend your free time. Nuremberg’s importance as a key location for the economy, science and research extends far beyond the local region.
