Dates and Itinerary:  Baylor in Germany travel begins on July 8 (group leaves from DFW airport). The group travels to Frankfurt, Weimar, and Berlin en route to Dresden. In Dresden students attend four weeks of small, intensive language classes at Dresden’s TU (university). Baylor faculty plan discussions, tours and excursions; time for individual travel is built into the itinerary.

Program Mission: Students explore the language and culture of Germany through intensive study and discovery guided by Baylor faculty.

Travel to and from Germany: Students may travel with a program representative from Dallas DFW airport or make their own arrangements for travel to and return from Germany. The study abroad programming begins in Frankfurt July 9.
A passport is required for travel to Germany.

Excursions: Baylor in Germany provides abundant opportunities for cultural immersion. Overnight stays in Frankfurt, Mainz, Weimar, Berlin, and an extended stay in Dresden are planned.  Program includes tours such as: Gutenberg Museum, the Wartburg; Berlin Olympic stadium, Bundestag, Brandenburg Gate, Bauhaus Museum, Jewish Museum, Buchenwald Concentration Camp, porcelain capital Meißen, and “Saxony’s Switzerland” National Park. The group often attends concerts, plays, sporting events, films and lectures as well as activities such as biking and hiking along the Elbe River. Dresden is a major, cultural city founded in 1206 on the Elbe river. As the former residence of kings, Dresden invites exploration of its incredible museum collections, churches and palaces. In addition, Dresden is an easy travel distance of Poland, the Czech Republic, and German cities such as Leipzig.

Accommodations: Baylor students and professors are housed in hotels and on the TU campus. Dresden accommodations have kitchens, grocery stories and restaurant options within walking distance. A transportation pass for the Dresden area makes exploring and traveling in the city easy.
