[/vc_column_text][thb_gap height=”20″][thb_image alignment=”center” image=”12732″][thb_gap height=”20″][vc_column_text]The Humboldt University of Berlin is one of Germany’s leading universities and is ranked as one of the best universities in the world. The university has a rich history that any student studying here can be proud of, or better.. be part of it.[/vc_column_text][thb_gap height=”20″][thb_image alignment=”center” image=”12731″][thb_gap height=”20″][vc_column_text]Humboldt University’s faculties are mostly concentrated around the Mitte Campus, in central Berlin, but the university also has two other campuses: the Nord Campus and the Adlershof Campus. The university also has a fond tradition of hosting a book sale at the university’s iconic gates, facing Bebelplatz.[/vc_column_text][thb_gap height=”20″][thb_image alignment=”center” image=”12729″][thb_gap height=”20″][vc_column_text]A curious story about the Humboldt University features its library. Once one of Germany’s most prominent university libraries, many of its books were burned during the Nazi period. Since then, and after the university’s reform after the unification of East and West Germany, the library has become one of the city’s main cultural highlights.[/vc_column_text][thb_gap height=”20″][vc_raw_html el_class=”Google Maps”]JTNDZGl2JTIwY2xhc3MlM0QlMjJnb29nbGUtbWFwcyUyMiUzRSUwQSUzQ2lmcmFtZSUyMHNyYyUzRCUyMmh0dHBzJTNBJTJGJTJGd3d3Lmdvb2dsZS5jb20lMkZtYXBzJTJGZCUyRnUlMkYwJTJGZW1iZWQlM0ZtaWQlM0QxTmFHcDB3V3lVOGdfSDloUEF3MGpkNlo5NXNBJTIyJTIwd2lkdGglM0QlMjI4MDAlMjIlMjBoZWlnaHQlM0QlMjI0NTAlMjIlMjBmcmFtZWJvcmRlciUzRDAlM0UlM0MlMkZpZnJhbWUlM0UlMEElM0MlMkZkaXYlM0U=[/vc_raw_html][thb_gap height=”20″][vc_column_text]To get to Humboldt University just take the 12 tram to Universitätsstr. or the 100 or 200 buses to the main campus.
