The Free University Berlin (FUB) is sponsored by Americans in the begining of 1948. Here are most of all students with a special feeling for the City. The two big Buildings in a modern style made by iron are called "Rostlaube" and "Silberlaube".

First to Review

Freie Universität was established in 1948 after WWII, when westerners felt there was a communist influence taking over Humboldt Universität in the Soviet sector. (They chose the name to reflect the 'freedom' the new institution represented.)

As a part of the east/west Cold War story it's interesting, and the university itself is highly regarded, but its location in Berlin isn't that thrilling and its modern buildings no where near as inspiring as Humboldt Universität. If you're very keen, by all means have a walk through campus, but unless you're a hard-core Cold War junkie like me (and even then I'm not sure it's worth your time), you'd be better off spending your time elsewhere.
