... it used to be...


The HOHE SCHULE was founded in 1584 by Count Johann VI. Nassau Katzenelnbogen. Due to its religious orientation (Calvinism) the faculty was not eligible for academic degrees, but taught all the major fields of study: theology, law, philosophy, philology and medicine. Until its closure in 1817, about 5700 students from diverse European countries had benefited from the university. In the hey-day of the HOHE SCHULE (about 1584-1630) the small town of Herborn was known throughout Europe.
