  • This building, located in the middle of town and walking around town and suddenly looks very unique with a prominent appeared. Inside was very large.

  • The University Library is externally very futuristic designed, fürg but harmoniously into the landscape of the building. Applied inside a sufficient selection also jobs, even in groups (sometimes but a contest to get nen space). I managed the course design. I can't say how it is whether reflection of the Sun on the facade, for car drivers.

  • The University, the two ranks in front of the building, the water surface, which traces the outline of the synagogue. The architecture of the uni library fits very well here. And you should go in also. Is worth.

  • If you can nab an armchair on the 4th floor, you have a fine view onto the Black Forest. For the not-so-lucky, you'll have to arrive before 0800 (if not 0700) to get a place. The Germans take their silence very seriously; to fit in, come with noise-reducing ear plugs and a timer to ward off potential conquest. The building lacks character - then again, Gothic can't be built overnight; and Baroque needs capital. The grey pillars throughout could have been decorated rather than left barren; the toilets need some graffiti; the atmosphere sterile rather than inspirational. Here no poetry will be written nor would Marx have written his Communist Manifest (as he did in Manchester's Gothic library below). Plus points for accessibility. A local can pay a one-off fee (16 euros) and take out as many books as they please (I had 40 at one point). In England, either access is restricted to students or limited to 10 visits or so. The range of books is excellent and there are off-shoot libraries for more specialized themes.
  • +Great views from top floor, plenty of daylight enters the building +Very comfortable armchairs -Architecture inappropriate considering the location in the vicinity of the picturesque old city -Unnecessary, life complicating security measures (no bags/overcoats allowed into the silent area) -Eye-straining artificial lights -Terrible printing system (USB-ports work 1/3 of the time) -Very crowded
  • The best and most the convenient place in Freiburg for studying (except for examination period , it becomes so busy)
  • It's quite loud in here. And crowded - it's not always easy to find a free spot!
  • All in all nice and beautiful but there need to be more space for learning
