What our researchers say
If I try to think about what I would remember ten years from now about Dresden, I can surely say TUD Welcome Center would be in top five. My romantic experience with German culture and German way of life started with people from the Welcome Center, one may think it is an office dedicated to help foreign scientists but then you will miss the true essence of those people who are working here. If you miss your home you can easily find a new home within the Welcome Center comrades as they smile from deep inside while asking you ‘How may I help you?’.

Unfortunately, due to some last minute changes in the plan I could not personally come and thank you. So, I am writing this email to thank you so much! ‘Thank you’ is really a small word to express my gratitude. The job you are doing is incredible and I learned a lot about Germany from your events. If it wasn’t you, I would not have explored many regions. I already miss Dresden and the Welcome Center! I wish you a lot of success and hope the Welcome Center gets even bigger! Thank you once again!

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

It’s an event you shouldn’t miss by any means. The venue is located amidst the remains of the ancient monastery “Altzella” and on the grounds around the old walls.

Thursday, 18 May: Wonderful Town (operette) The musical of Leonard Bernstein is about the story of two sisters coming from a really small town who move to New York to find a good job. Through their story, you will feel the spirit of the magic metropolis. The city that never sleeps offers many possibilities to people from different countries and the chance to develop new perspectives. For the music, Bernstein mixes sounds of the swing-era and his personal idea of symphonic metropolis. A really worthwhile occasion to discover the incredible city of New York through an entertaining story and […]
