Excellent teaching and research is paramount for successful studies, but life outside the classroom is important too. Students of the KH enjoy their breaks in our Café Bohne and the Caritas canteen. Public talks and lecture series encourage lively discussions with members of the public. Various artists and specialists are invited to present and exhibit their works, which is a great way of expanding our students' horizons. Our course parties are the perfect way to leave your daily routine behind and help you feel part of the KH family.
