About Goethe University Frankfurt

The Goethe University Frankfurt (full German name: Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universitt Frankfurt am Main) is a university which was founded in 1914 as a Citizens' University, which means that, while it was a State university of Prussia, it had been founded and financed by the wealthy and active liberal citizenry of Frankfurt am Main, a unique feature in German university history. It was named in 1932 after one of the most famous natives of Frankfurt, the poet and writer Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. Today, the university has 38,000 students, on 4 major campuses. The university is located on four campuses in Frankfurt am Main: Other facilities include the university sports complex on Ginnheimer Landstrae in Frankfurt-Bockenheim, the Bio Campus which houses the Botanic Garden of Johann Wolfgang Goethe Universitt Frankfurt am Main at the Palmengarten in Frankfurt, and Art history in Frankfurt-Hausen.
