During Your StayCopyright: Martin Braun
We have settled in quickly here in Aachen with the help of the Welcome Center. We enjoyed the family-breakfast and my wife is going to attend the German language course for partners of international researchers.
Your Time in Aachen
Three countries come together at the Aachen city limits and the proximity to other cultures provides the city with particular charm. We want to help you get to know your new surroundings. Use our information about Aachen and the region, find out about the diverse cultural and recreational offers of the city of Aachen, and profit from RWTH Aachen's various sports offers. The overview of programs and offers for families and information about childcare is certainly of interest, if you are coming to Aachen with your family. Family friendliness is an important value in Aachen!
Use the Aachen's Newcomer Service webpages, to get to know Aachen and find tips and advice about moving and services for your family.
In order to be mobile in Aachen and its surroundings, you should learn about the public transportation in Aachen, using driver's licenses, and options for car sharing in Aachen. The proximity to Belgium and the Netherlands, the Eifel, and Ardennes, are certainly worth a visit more than once. Aside from Deutsche Bahn, the Dutch NV Nederlandse Spoorwegen, and the Belgian SNCB, there are many long-distance bus companies available for travel in Germany. When traveling outside of Germany don't forget to look into visa requirements early on.
Your Time at RWTH
RWTH Aachen offers you diverse possibilities to get know your colleagues, talk with others, and network. Use the various offers for networking and establishing contact and scientific discourse and dialogue with other researchers.
At the annual welcome event for international scientists, representatives from the University and the city of Aachen welcome you as internationally mobile researchers and representatives from different services offices present their services. At this event you have the opportunity to meet your other international colleagues and talk about your research with each other.
If you need help in particular situations, we are happy to put you in contact with the experts in RWTH Aachen's various advising offices.
