Student populations in Germany:

Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Muenster, Giessen, Marburg, Freiburg, Stuttgart, Saarbruecken, etcetc.

Berlin for sure has the highest population of students in Germany, Hamburg und Munich share the second place, but not so sure about the other ranks. Anway, all of these cities are pretty nice and recommendable for a visit.

...and Eindhoven.

Note that Delft, Eindhoven and Twente are purely "technical universities", which means that they feature about 80% guys versus 20% girls. Other universities have simiarly skewed percentages for individual studies, but a better balance overall.

Groningen, Maastricht and Leiden have something of a reputation of being the most party-oriented cities, although in Leiden most of that happens in places which are only accessible to students.
Amsterdam and Rotterdam, and Utrecht to a lesser degree, are cities of such size that the student population - though large - doesn't really define the city.
Smaller cities like Leiden and Delft on the other hand really are student cities, where you'll notice a distinctly different vibe when exams are on and such.

Muenster (already mentioned by kafri) and I think Cologne are in the top 5 of the towns with the highest student population as well, I think.

thank you guys ! you help me a lot....:)

actually I'm haveing internship in a dutch company now, they sells clothes to students in Nl and Germany , they need students to sell them to students, that's why they want to know which cities have large students population.

BTW: I want to contact with students on the internet, but I don't know how...because it's impossible for me to visit every university in these two contries...I only can visit 2 or 3 schools.
