What our researchers say
If you have just arrived in Dresden and don’t know too much about the city, people or TU Dresden, I can assure you that the best place to start is TU Dresden Welcome Center. It will simply become a great part of your happy moments during the education in Germany. I dedicate this verse from Persian poet Hafiz to the Dresden:
May your goodness always increase
And your smiling face never cease.
Mitra from Iran
The support I had before and just after my arrival in Dresden was a great help. With the help of the Welcome Center of the University, I immediately found an apartment in Dresden-Neustadt. I did not expect Dresden to be such a beautiful place.

A Message from our Rector
TU Dresden has clearly and unambiguously positioned itself towards open-mindedness and tolerance. We are grateful and proud that we at TU Dresden learn, teach, work and live together with around 5,000 international scientists and students to achieve top performances in research and teaching together. Science is international! TU Dresden thrives on interaction between foreign and German students and scientists, who are all a firm part of our university, regardless of religion and background. It was our aim, and we have succeeded, to make foreign staff and students enthusiastic about TU Dresden. Now I see it as our duty to ensure that they experience Dresden as a charming city and a great place to live. Come and join us, we look forward to seeing you here!- Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Hans Müller-Steinhagen
Where our researchers come from
Our trip to the Saale-Unstrut region started with bad weather. Again. We were afraid that our big plans for hiking to castles and walking through Naumburg would be stopped by the rain once more—those of you who participated in the wine hiking and tasting in Radebeul will know what I am talking about! But worrying too early is never a good idea. So we waited for our bus, driven by Klaus, who was always there when we needed him—more on that later. The ride to Naumburg was pretty quiet because everybody tried to catch up some sleep from the relatively […]
Thursday, 20 October 2016: The Good City (exhibition) Sustainability is the big topic of the Umundu Festival in Dresden. In the context of this festival you can visit an interesting exhibition in the traffic museum. The Good City is about the challenges Kopenhagen is facing as a bicycle city. Air pollution, noise and traffic jams are a problem for the Danish capital as well as for every other big city. So the administration wants to bring half of the inhabitants on a bicycle. But the development stopped. The exhibition shows ideas to support the bicycle traffic in the future and […]
It has become a tradition in the TUD Welcome Center that, twice a year, we welcome the newly arrived researchers with a special event: The Bus Tour – followed by our Regular’s Table where newcomers and those who have lived in Dresden for a while can meet. Last week, our latest Bus Tour took place – this time with the addition of what already felt like arctic temperatures. As we started on foot with our tour guide Günter Kieb, we slowly realized that summer is definitely over and that warmer jackets are indeed necessary. But Mr. Kieb made sure we […]
