    Opportunities to meet locals and other international scientists

    The University of Würzburg hosts a group for the support of international scientists which has been active since 1984. The group provides a platform for international researchers from all faculties to meet local families from Würzburg as well as other guest researchers from many different countries. The members are very helpful and can give you assistance for your start in Germany.

    Every second Wednesday the group meets in the cafeteria of the international guesthouse of our university and furthermore regularly visits museums, galleries or concerts in Würzburg and goes on excursions to other destinations in the region.

    People from many different nationalities join the activities – partners and children are also welcome. For many guests participation in these activities is a wonderful experience. They stay in touch with the group even after their departure from Germany and visit every time they return to Würzburg.

    All new visitors receive a warm welcome and can always find a sympathetic ear.
