University of Heidelberg

Heidelberg's university has long been known for its fraternities or dueling societies, which are the German equivalent of Yale's Skull & Bones.

The fraternities attract wealthy, conservative students from old alumni families, and other students often look down on them (both figuratively and literally in some cases; the photo above was taken from the Schloss or Castle, and you can see yellow paint that anti-fraternity students dumped on the roof of this frat house).
