Welcome to Jena – The city of Light

There's so much to see and do in this vibrant, young and modern city. With its magnificent history, there's much more to the famous university town of Jena than just research and academia. As well as being the birthplace of the Early Romantic movement and home to a hugely successful optical lens industry, the city boasts a modern cultural scene with highlights including 'Kulturarena' (an open-air festival spanning seven weeks of summer), theatre productions, and concerts by the Jena Philharmonic Orchestra. The city also shows its creative side at the Lichtbildarena photography festival.
Situated in the beautiful Saale valley, Jena offers a range of ways to keep active while exploring the surrounding area. You can walk, cycle or even canoe your way to breathtaking views.

We can’t wait to meet you!
