Paderborn Travel Guide: 72 reviews and 282 photos

The modern university of Paderborn is situated in a southern suburb. I have to admit that this is about the ugliest campus I have ever seen.

If anyone is interested in studying there, here is the link to Paderborn University website

This dark hole is the main entrance. Without a forest of signposts one would not even find it.

Or would you guess that the path in the photo above leads to the main entrance?

Four wings of different height surround an inner courtyard.

The wings and towers are named and marked with huge capital letters to make orientation easier (read: possible at all).

The foyer is as inviting as in most modern universities.

Another view of the courtyard, which is the most pleasant part of the building complex.

View from the third floor

In the distance you can see the steeples of the old town, Dom (left) and Busdorfkirche (right).
