The still young history of Zeppelin University (ZU) is a success story. After its founding in 2003, not only did its study programs regularly land at the top of the CHE university rankings, but its innovative and socially relevant research and teaching, as well as its ZU ZF Campus in Fallenbrunnen, inaugurated in 2014, have been showered with prizes and awards.


More than 10,000 visitors attend the events of ZU each year – the infamous CitizensUniversity (BürgerUniversität), concerts, public lectures and much more.
