Bettina-HausSybelstraße 14 · 35037 Marburg


The residences known as "Schlosswohnheime" are very popular due to their central location. Situated below Marburg Castle, the houses are surrounded by a spacious garden landscape that includes parts of the old city wall. The Bettina tower is named after Bettina von Arnim, and an exhibition in the temple of love (Liebestempelchen) - also located on the premises of the student residence - is dedicated to her. The "Bettina-Haus" was built in 1927.
