Meeting Center for Nations: International Guest House
In 1994, the International Guest House “Felix Hausdorff” was included in the programme for promoting international guest houses in the federal states, which were formerly part of the GDR, funded by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.
The International Guest House has hosted foreign visiting academics at the University of Greifswald and the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics and their families since 1999.
Rittmeister Albert von Schulz built the building as his residence in 1871. Due to its staircase tower, which gives you a fantastic view of Greifswald, the town villa is known amongst the locals as “Turmschulzenhaus”.
In 1899 the house was sold to a social club comprised of teaching staff, later the building was used by academic institutes of the University and from 1962 onwards it was home to the University’s kindergarten. After first renovation works and vacancy, the reconstruction and renovation of the town villa and the construction of two new buildings was started in 1997. The first visiting academics were welcomed in 1999.
The International Guest House “Felix Hausdorff” is a member of the Association of International Meeting Centers and Academic Guest Houses in Germany.
