AT A GLANCE/LOCATIONBerlin, Germany

Hochschule fur Musik is one of the most respected universities in Germany, specializing in music and the performing arts. Internationally acclaimed musicians have taught in an environment which particularly encourages intensive pedagogical and artistic work. Hochschule is located in Dresden, Germany which is in the idyllic Elbe Valley. Due to the intensive artistic environment, this conservatory-type study abroad program is designed specifically for classical music and voice majors at Belmont. 

Dresden is located in the eastern German state of Saxony, near the border of the Czech Republic. Dresden has a long history as the capital and royal residence of former electors and royal families of Saxony. For centuries, royal families furnished the city with cultural and artistic splendor, which now makes it one of the most visited cities in Germany. Dresden is also one of the greenest cities in Europe. Three nature reserves lie within the urban area. Dresden is one of the warmest cities in Germany. Locals and new arrivals appreciate this and prefer to spend the summer outside with city beaches, outdoor festivals, street parties, summer stages and a legendary open-air cinema scene on the banks of the Elbe.
