From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Giessen, spelled Gießen in German , is a town in the German federal state (Bundesland) of Hesse, capital of both the district of G and the administrative region of G . The population is approximately 78,000, with roughly 24,000 university students.

The name comes from Giezzen, as it was first referred to in 1197, which refers to the position of the town between several rivers, lakes and streams.  The largest river in G is the Lahn, which divides the town in two parts (west and east), roughly 50 kilometres (31 miles) north of Frankfurt am Main.

In 1969, the town hosted the ninth Hessentag State Festival.
