NRW. Nordrhein-Westfalen. Your new home.
Your new home, where you will be living and studying from now on, has various names in the German language - it is usually simply called the Ruhr region, but Metropole Ruhr and (Ruhr-)Pott are also common names. The region has a long mining history and offers a special "industrial charm" in many places. But nature lovers don't miss out either thanks to the many hiking trails and bike routes. Dortmund is greener than you think!
Something for everyone
Below you will find a selection of activities that we offer regularly in the summer and winter semester. One example is the stadium tour through the Signal-Iduna-Park, which excites not only soccer fans! As soon as an activity is planned, you will be informed about it by e-mail and can register. We would like to invite you to explore the diversity of Dortmund, the Ruhr area and NRW, and to make new contacts. During our adventures you will not only get to know the region better, but also your fellow students! One more reason to be there!
