Since the German reunification, the City of Braunschweig is again in the middle of Germany. It is more than 1000 years old, and was chosen by Henry the Lion as his place of residence during the middle of the 12th century. This initiated Braunschweig's development into a large medieval city with a cathedral and a castle. The city was an independent merchant town from the 13th century with connections all over Northern Europe until 1671, when it once again became a residence city. The Collegium Carolinum that is now known as the Technical University Carolo-Wilhelmina at Braunschweig was founded in this period, in 1745. Therefore, TU Braunschweig is Germany's oldest technical university and looks back on a two and a half century tradition of academic teaching and research.

The city is a center of science and the arts, but also of the industry, best represented by the close-by main site of Volkswagen. It was badly destroyed during the 2nd world war but has been rebuilt as a center for research, culture and the economy. Braunschweig is nowadays the centre of one of the most active German research regions. Therefore, it is also Germany's city of science 2007, a competition now in its third round. The city is attractively located in Northern Germany with the Lüneburger Heide in the North and the Harz Mountains in the South. It is located at Germany's most important east-west arteries for transport on rail and road and thus, easily reached.
