Dr. Carl-Duisberg-Haus Gisonenweg 2 • 35037 Marburg

The residences known as "Schlosswohnheime" are very popular due to their central location. Situated beneath 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 "Dr. Carl-Duisberg-Haus" was built in the years 1927 and 1959 and modernised in 2011.
