Founded in 1456, the University of Greifswald is one of the oldest public research universities in Europe. The university owns one of only four remaining 36-line Gutenberg Bibles from 1458, as well as various paintings, other artworks and a great number of historical books. Due to its small-town atmosphere, the pronounced architectural presence of the alma mater across town, and the young, academic flair in the streets, Greifswald is often described as a “university with a town built around it” rather than a town with a university. Situated in close proximity to the sea, Greifswald is Germany’s “youngest city”, having the highest percentage of households under 30 years of age. It also has the highest percentage of citizens using bicicles as the preferred daily commuting vehicle in the whole country.
