Changed opening hours

Due to a public holiday Mensa & Cafeteria Academica will be closed on October 2nd and 3rd 2023.

In the Mensa Academica there is the gastronomic concept of "Free Flow", where guests can individually compose their meal from several components. For those in a hurry, however, a "Quick Plate" - a complete dish - is also available.

Furthermore, a pasta counter and a colourful and varied salad buffet are part of the offer. The front cooking area with wok & grill, the vitamin-rich smoothies and various cold drinks round off the Mensa's offer.

The cafeteria offers sandwiches, cakes & warm snacks, among other things.

Guests can read, study and work in the cafeteria hall until the evening hours.
