Fürst Pückler the famous Cottbus landscape architect was well aware that travel broadens the mind. With this in mind the International Relations Office invites students to get to a know the new country and new people. Not only are there trips to areas in the region like Neuzelle, Branitz and Spreewald but also to cities further away in Germany with significant cultural and historical values like Dresden and Weimar.
Every BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg student is welcome to join us. Due to the fact that we have limited space we would kindly ask you to write your name on the participants list in the International Relations Office once the travel dates have been finalized and announced.
