 Jena provides a unique combination of a beautiful setting, strong cultural and philosophical traditions, high-tech industry, world-renowned non-university research institutions, and, above all, a modern, state-of-the-art university. With about 100,000 inhabitants, Jena is comparatively small, yet it is the largest town in the central Saale valley. Situated in Thuringia, the "Green Heart of Germany", Jena is famous for its beautiful surroundings and natural setting. Limestone slopes on both banks of the river Saale are responsible for a mild climate. There are even vineyards planted on the hills around the town, and a large variety of wild orchids grow in the surrounding area.
