The Hochschule Geisenheim University (HGU) was founded in 2013 as a "new type of university" following the merger of the Geisenheim Research Centre and the Geisenheim Faculty of RheinMain University of Applied Sciences. Behind this is the combination of comprehensive research and application-orientated, practical teaching in all areas of a unique spectrum of subjects ranging from wine and beverages to food, horticulture and landscape architecture. The cross-cutting topics of sustainability and climate protection are also an integral part of all degree programmes and are the focus of research.

To date, HGU is the only "new type" of university in Germany. At the same time, it can look back on over 150 years of history. The foundation stone for today's university was laid back in October 1872 with the founding of the "Royal Prussian Training Centre for Fruit and Wine Growing" in Geisenheim.

The Geisenheim campus offers modern laboratories, media and seminar rooms and lecture theatres. The campus also has its own winery and beverage plant as well as spacious outdoor areas for fruit growing, horticulture and landscaping, complemented by a modern greenhouse area.
