About Nordhausen

Nordhausen is a small town located in the north-central part of Germany, in the state of Thuringia. Leipzig/Halle Airport (LEJ) is located approximately 110 km northwest of Nordhausen and is a major airport in the region with direct flights to many international destinations. A small regional airport called Erfurt-Weimar Airport (ERF) is located about 60 km west of Nordhausen. Erfurt Airport offers several direct flights to European locations such as Amsterdam, Vienna, and Barcelona, although it does not have as many international connections as the larger airports in Leipzig or Hanover.

Monthly living costs: 600 – 750 €. That includes the cost of accommodation (250 – 500€), Food and groceries (150 – 250€), transportation (60 – 80€), and health insurance (100 – 120€). For students seeking a first-class education without the exorbitant costs associated with larger cities, Nordhausen is a desirable alternative. This is because the cost of living is comparatively reasonable compared to larger German cities. In addition, students benefit from an excellent quality of life and the ability to focus on their studies due to the low cost of living.

The population of Nordhausen is about 42,000 people, of which about 3,000 are students. Although Nordhausen is a small city with a relatively small student population, it offers a friendly student environment, a variety of academic and cultural activities, and first-rate outdoor recreational opportunities.
