With 160,000 inhabitants and about 26,000 students, Osnabrück can rightly call itself a "student town". It is by far the largest location for which Osnabrück Student Services is responsible. Our administration is also located here.
Osnabrück is young, colourful and famous. Pubs, cafés and restaurants are located at almost every corner of the picturesque old town offering fun and entertainment until the early hours of the morning.
Although the city offers wonderful opportunities for modern, urban living, the event that made Osnabrück famous happened more than 400 years ago. In 1648 - after five years of negotiations - the Peace of Westphalia was signed here in the town hall. That is why Osnabrück still calls itself "the city of peace" today.
