I currently have the following page as a title page:

enter image description here

The left title pages is with \vspace{10cm} / \vspace{5cm}, the right one without. The upper ones are in A4 page format (for students to print), the lower ones are in A5 format (for professional printing).

I think the ones on the left look much better. But I would like to have the space inserted "dynamically" (so that I don't have to change this every time I change the format). How can I do this?

This is the source (sources with image):

\usepackage{amsmath,amssymb}% math symbols / fonts
\usepackage{mathtools}      % \xRightarrow
\usepackage{nicefrac}       % \nicefrac
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} % this is needed for umlauts
\usepackage[ngerman]{babel} % this is needed for umlauts
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}    % this is needed for correct output of umlauts in pdf
\usepackage{makeidx} % for automatically generation of an index
\usepackage[bookmarks,bookmarksnumbered,hypertexnames=false,pdfpagelayout=OneColumn,colorlinks,hyperindex=false]{hyperref} % has to be after makeidx
\usepackage{braket}         % needed for \Set
\usepackage{csquotes}       % \enquote{}
\usepackage{subfig}         % multiple figures in one
\usepackage{parskip}        % nicer paragraphs
\usepackage{xifthen}        % \isempty
\usepackage{changepage}     % for the adjustwidth environment
\usepackage[arrow, matrix, curve]{xy}
\usepackage{caption}        % get newlines within captions
\usepackage{tikz}           % draw
\usepackage{tikz-3dplot}    % draw
\usepackage{tkz-fct}        % draw
\usepackage{cleveref} % has to be after hyperref, ntheorem, amsthm
\usepackage{xspace}   % for new commands; decides weather I want to insert a space after the command

\author{Siehe \href{http://tinyurl.com/GeoTopo}{tinyurl.com/GeoTopo}}
\title{Geometrie und Topologie\\


I thought I could make a full page as title page. But this might cause problems with font size.

What exactly do you want? Did you try \vfill or \vfil? –  Sigur Dec 26 '13 at 17:41
In principle I want vfill (or vfil). But it didn't work. –  moose Dec 26 '13 at 17:46
What do you mean by didn't work? Please, explain better what is the desired output. –  Sigur Dec 26 '13 at 17:48
Maybe \vspace{.1\textheight} –  Sigur Dec 26 '13 at 17:52
Well I think you should use the environment titlepage there you can get absolute control of the elements, position and layout of your title page. You need to replace the \maketitle with that environment... even if you don't need an inner second title page. –  Aradnix Dec 26 '13 at 18:45
