Overview

The Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich is considered as a premier educational institution in Europe for its academic and research directions. It was founded in 1472 by Duke Ludwig IX of Bavaria-Landshut, making it the sixth oldest university in Germany in continuous operation.

Though it was first established in Ingolstadt, the University moved to Landshut in 1800 due to the threat of the French to Ingolstadt at that time. A couple of years later, it gained its official name of Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität to honor its founder, King Maximilian I of Bavaria. It relocated to its present residence in Munich 1826 under the orders of King Ludwig I of Bavaria.

Since then, it has been offering programs in humanities, cultural studies, law, and social sciences. It also has courses for the natural sciences and medicine. It offers more than 200 degree courses, of which Philosophy, Chemistry, History, Classics & Ancient History, and Biological Sciences are the most sought after. The LMU community is committed to research, with focus on the following fields: Ancient Studies; Area Studies with an emphasis on Eastern Europe; Nanosciences; Origin of the Universe; Photonics and Quantum Optics; Molecular Biosystems; Neurosciences; Protein Sciences; and Translational Health Science.

The University has contributed greatly to the sciences, religion, arts and culture. It has produced numerous Nobel Prize winners, among them Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen for Physics in 1901, Adolf von Baeyer for Chemistry in 1905, and Karl Ritter von Frisch for Medicine in 1973. Max Karl Planck, who received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1918, also graduated from the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich. A handful of its faculty were also awarded the prestigious Alexander von Humboldt Professorship, including Georgi Dvali who is known in particle research. There is also Ulrike Gaul, a leading expert in systems biology, which is a relatively novel area of research.

Notably, one of the pioneering figures in Sociology, Max Weber, spent the last year of his life in the university campus. A notorious figure in history, Josef Mengele or the Angel of Death also hailed from the University. Lastly, one of the modern figures of religion, Pope Benedict XVI, was once a student at the Herzogliches Georgianum (Ducal Georgianum) of the University.

The Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich is fully committed to academics and research. To this end, it has a center dedicated to advanced interdisciplinary studies. It enjoys the moniker “University of Excellence” under the German Universities Excellence Initiative.
