University of Rostock, Germany

14 of 17

Founded in 1419, Rostock, built in the historic heart of this Baltic seaport city, is the oldest university in Continental Northern Europe. Its campus buildings, though architecturally varied, are universally lovely: a redbrick Neo-Renaissance central building, erected in 1866, has arched windows, doorways, and stone statues; nearby, the library, built in 2004, has a splendid contemporary façade of glass and steel.
