The Albertina, one of the oldest universities in Europe, had a 476-year history. S. Dach, I. Kant, J. G. Hamann, J. G. Herder, C. G. J. Jacobi, F. von Lindemann, D. Hilbert, and many other outstanding scientists taught at the Albertina. J. Ch. Gottsched, E. T. A. Hoffmann and K. Donelaitis, the famous writers, attended lectures at the University.

The University’s greatest alumnus is the philosopher Immanuel Kant
(1724 – 1804). The name of Kant forever united the Albertina with the spiritual heritage of humankind and the history of the region.
