The TUD Welcome Center staff organizes a Big Day Out for all international researchers. We will join you on a short campus tour on foot, then hop into an wonderful historic bus to discover the city and after that will come together at Wenzel Prager Bierstuben in Dresden-Neustadt for a gathering and nice dinner (self-paid). Take the chance to meet us and other international researchers and ask all your questions and to find new friends. Please register a.s.a.p.!

Part 1: For new international PhD students, Postdocs and guest researchers who have arrived within the last 6 months “Crossing Bridges” with an old IKARUS bus – short historic campus tour on foot and guided city tour in bus
Thursday, 13 October, 4 – 6.30 p.m.

We have started this project as a pilot last year with the aim to make it a tradition. Now we are ready now for the second time and take 38 newly-arrived international PhD students, Post-docs and guest researchers on a special short round trip with a bus from the Sixties through Dresden after giving a quick, rather historic tour on campus. Take the chance to get to know your new town from another perspective and be prepared to learn a few hard and fun facts about history, people and delicacies. After the tour we meet in a Dresden Neustadt restaurant for a relaxed gathering and dinner (self-paid). Take the chance to ask our team all the relevant questions about what to do in Dresden, how to tip in restaurants and anything else that comes to your mind. You are welcome to register as friend or partner for the dinner.

Start: Main entrance Zeunerbau, George-Bähr-Straße 3c / We will start our tour on foot there and will enter the bus a little later close by.
When: Thursday, 13 October 2016 4.00 – 6.30 p.m.
Please register a.s.a.p. via e-mail to: with
