    Max Müller

    Oxford University has been a place of research and study for intellectuals from across the globe for more than a thousand years.  They travelled to the quiet quads and green Victorian suburbs, and left their indelible mark; their architecture, science and culture has shaped this place forever.

    This tour offers two hours on foot visiting the colleges, museums and libraries associated with famous German thinkers, artists and academics.


    Albrecht Dürer (self-portrait)
