  • Moving to Dresden

    As an expat moving to Dresden, you will find a likable city with a high quality of life and an oceanic climate. However, before your relocation to Dresden, make sure you are up to speed with German visa regulations!
  • Living in Dresden

    Living in Dresden can be an experience full of culture; and not only due to the numerous historical buildings found throughout the city. There is a good transportation system in place, so discovering the local landmarks on a day out or commuting to work shouldn’t be any problem either.
  • Working in Dresden

    Depending on your nationality and the reason for your stay, getting a work permit for Germany can be anything from very easy to quite difficult. However, once these administrative tasks have been handled, Dresden is a great place to live and work, with a highly specialized, local economy.
