Welcome to Dresden!

The citizens of Dresden want to welcome you in our city.

The organisation Dresden – Place to be! e.V. has dedicated itself to the mission of making life in our city as pleasant and uncomplicated as possible for new Dresdeners, wherever and for whatever reason they come to us.

Whether for professional reasons or due to escaping from armed conflicts, the association Dresden – Place to be! e.V. wants to give everyone the opportunity to find a home in Dresden, no matter if temporarily or permanently.

That is why Dresden – Place to be! e.V. has been offering voluntary mentorships through their members and friends since 2014. The association does not only offer aid to international scientists from wide-ranging fields, but also provides educational mentorships for students and supports refugee families. The mentors help in the search for schools, kindergartens, sport teams or doctors and give bureaucratic assistance. They show Dresden and its wonderful cultural landscape, organise trips in the beautiful surroundings of the city or even invite them into their families.

Due to disheartening current circumstances, the association is moreover preparing for the support of war refugees from Ukraine.
