In the Center of Zagreb

With its Central European and Mediterranean flair, Croatia's capital is a dynamic city rich in tradition: on the one hand, its history of almost a thousand years is mirroded by the Cathedral, baroque palaces and the city’s medieval center of the Upper Town (Kaptol and Gradec), as well as by the 19th-century and fin de siècle architecture of the Lower Town (Donji Grad), while on the other hand there are numerous street cafés, markets, parks, coffee houses in the Viennese tradition, a vibrant cultural scene, gastronomy inspired by the Mediterranean and swimming possibilities at the nearby Jarun lake.

Zagreb is a city one can get to know on foot or by tram. Art and culture lovers can visit museums, galleries, theatres, libraries, concerts, opera shows or the BP jazz club in the immediate vicinity of Jelačić Square, the town's main square. Valuable sights of architecture and science are the old University Library (in art nouveau style) – today's State Archive – and the new National and University Library, open 24 hours a day. Hiking and skiing enthusiasts can ride a tram to the foot of Mount Medvednica, while those who like walking and enjoy a nice view can visit the Upper Town with its picturesque streets and a view on the Lower Town or walking paths and jogging tracks along the river Sava, which divides the 19th-century Zagreb from the modern parts of town.. With 60.000 students the University of Zagreb, founded in 1699, is one of the largest universities in South-East Europe. The Center for European Education is situated close to Zagreb's city center, at the Faculty of Teacher Education (office, library, media center, administration).

Münster is Germany's bicycle metropolis, with more than 100,000 of its inhabitants and tourists riding bicycles every day. There is a pictoresque promenade along the shore of Aa, a small river flowing through the city, and the Aasee lake in the town's center, constructed in 1928.

The cityscape is dominated by the historic Old Town, the Cathedral and the City Palace (Stadtschloss), as well as prominent modern buildings. Art and culture enthusiasts can visit various museums of the city, among which there is the Pablo Picasso Graphics Museum, the world's largest collection of Picasso's graphics, or the „Kreativkai“ complex by the harbour, with the Wolfgang-Borchert-Theatre, the Hot Jazz Club and a diverse gastronomic and club scene.  

The German Office of the Center is situated in the very heart of town near the Cathedral, in the building of the Institute for Educational Sciences. Numerous classrooms, a media center and a comprehensive library are at disposal for teaching and research.
