Kästner Kolleg e.V. is officially in charge of the social & cultural program at the cultural office of the TU Dresden and its foreign students.
For this program we organise excursions inside and outside of Germany, trips to cultural sights, culture evenings with a focus on special countries and topics, our weekly "Stammtisch" (roundtable meeting), smaller and bigger parties like the "end of the year celebration", concerts, film and game nights, workshops, lectures, visits to museums and much more.
We aim to provide foreign students with a representative cross section of not only Germany's culture, politics, arts and history but above all modern Germany. Simply put, we want to show them the country and its people and get to know each other better.

We place great importance on the integration effect, meaning that we value both the interaction among the international students and their interaction with Germans.
This can, as for example, occur between cultural tandem partners, where two students meet and learn about one other's cultures. More about find here.
