InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Dresden

Hello to all Americans in Dresden! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Dresden? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Dresden which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Dresden is an up-and-coming expat destination. The capital of Saxony is a sprawling city known for its noted university, focus on high-tech industry, rebuilt city center, spacious city structure, and much more! With the available bus, tram, and funicular services, as well as a very bikeable city layout, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in Blasewitz or Striesen, for example, which are less than a 20-minute commute away from Dresden’s center.

Although Dresden has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Dresden, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
