Von Weber attended the Maximiliangymnasium in Munich, and afterward from 1888-1894 pursued studies in mathematics in Munich, Göttingen, and Paris. In 1893 he was awarded the Ph.D. from the University of Munich (his dissertation being titled Studien zur Theorie der infinitesimalen Transformationen, Gustav C. Bauer, advisor). Habilitation followed at the University of Munich in 1895, becoming full professor there in 1903. He moved to the University of Würzburg in 1907.
