The Food Scene and hanging out in Konstanz

The university is situated on a hill away from the town center. There are therefore no restaurants located at a convenient distance. The Mensa and Cafeteria run by the Studentenwerk provide warm food, salats, snacks, and beverages at a reasonable price. The Cafe Arche, which is located in the university building itself, is open Monday to Friday from 11.30 to 23.00. Gastronomes can find information about the food scene in Konstanz (sorry, only in German) here. If you are interested in the nightlife in Konstanz, check this out.
