About the IBZ guest house (Ludwig-Leichhardt-House)

The International Center of Academic Exchange of Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus-Senftenberg was built in 1999 within the framework of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation as such a guest house for international scientists. The guesthouse was named after the scientist and explorer Ludwig Leichhardt who was born in a village near Cottbus in 1813.

Fourteen completely furnished apartments of different sizes provide a temporary home for guest scholars and their families (tree one-room apartments, seven two-room apartments, two three-room apartments and two flats have four rooms). Almost all apartments have a small balcony. The garden with a playground for children invites to stay for a while. The house is centrally located, only a few minutes away from the university and the city centre.
