The LMU Munich is one of the leading research universities in Europe, with a more than 500-year-long tradition. The university began with four faculties in Ingolstadt where it witnessed the flowering of German humanism and played a major role in the Counter-Reformation. The move to Landshut came along with the move of the faculties toward the Enlightment. The switch to Munich, to the heart of the royal capital, brought an expansion of the faculties and a huge advance in the sciences. Today, LMU Munich competes among international universities and research institutions. It builds on its distinct identity and its core skills in research and instruction in order to successfully face the challenges of both academics and our changing world.
Being one of the largest cities in Germany, Munich is also the capital city of Bavaria. Munich is a leading location for science and research. The beautiful and lively city of Munich is located on the river Isar north of the Bavarian Alps. It is a "green" city with numerous and beautiful parks. The famous Englischer Garten (English Garden) is located close to the city centre and the university buildings and covers an area larger than Central Park in New York, therefore being one of the world's largest urban public parks. Munich offers a broad variety of cultural and leisure time attractions.
