The Philosophers’ Tower

High above the city’s rooftops

Standing at a height of 52 metres, the Philosophenturm dominates the campus and is visible from far away, offering breath-taking views over the city's rooftops from the upper floors. This fourteen-story tower affords maximum flexibility, with seven auditoriums on the ground floor,  where events can be held simultaneously with total attendance of around 1,400. Numerous meeting rooms are available as well. All auditoriums and meeting rooms have video projection systems; the larger auditoriums are equipped with podium and wireless microphones. WiFi internet access is available, as everywhere on campus. The catering situation for your guests is particularly convenient, as the Philosophenturm  has a modern cafeteria offering a wide range of food.
