Welcome to the HZDR Guest House!


The HZDR guest house has nine modern and functionally equipped single and eight double apartments. The building is located directly on the research site, hence all facilities in Rossendorf are within walking distance for guests of the HZDR.

Each room has an individual bathroom with shower and a toilet and some have private kitchens for longer stays. For guests with limited mobility there is also a separate option available. All rooms provide modern TV satellite equipment, Wi-Fi access, an internal telephone and a safe. A regular cleaning and laundry service is included.

On the first floor, guests may use a shared kitchen with refrigerators, stove, microwave oven, electric kettle, toaster, and tableware as well as a large guest lounge with comfortable seats and LED TV. Snacks and drinks are offered through a vending machine. A terrace invites you to dwell or barbecue. Washers and dryers are also on the ground floor and can be used free of charge.



The 3G rule applies for stays at the guest house and HZDR. This means a vaccination, recovery or test certificate is required. To prove the respective status, the following certificates are accepted:

- Vaccination certificate with documentation of the complete vaccination protection,

- Proof of a positive PCR test result that was at least 28 days ago and is not older than 6 months (proof of recovery),

- Proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR (maximum 48 hours old) or a rapid antigen test (maximum 24 hours old) issued by an official test center, doctor's office, pharmacy or similar facility, or

- Certificate of a rapid antigen test (maximum 24 hours old) that was carried out under the supervision of an authorized and qualified person.

For long-term stays, residents should use the free test offer twice a week.
Please direct individual inquiries about this to gaestehaus@hzdr.de.

The management of the guest house accepts requests and room reservations via gaestehaus@hzdr.de. If a welcoming HZDR institute is covering the costs the reservation request must be sent through this institute.

Arrivals are not possible without a reservation.

The reception is open from Monday to Friday from 07:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. You can also call us (0351 260-4700) or contact us by e-mail outside opening hours.

We accept Credit card (Maestro, MasterCard, VISA) and cash in EUR.

Rooms are available on arrival at 1:00 p.m., keys and documents are handed out at the central reception at the HZDR entrance building 110.


You can use our company canteen (building 114) for lunch or as a Take-away meal from Monday to Friday. The breakfast supply will be discontinued until further notice. However, prior registration must be made via the ordering system for lunch. Further information can be found on our intranet page under the Employee restaurant tab. The 2G rule will apply in our canteen from November 16, 2021. This means that only fully vaccinated and recovered people, whose proof of recovery is not older than six months, are allowed to eat at the company restaurant. The specific certificate will be requested at the entrance, but not recorded. The option “to go” remains open for all employees.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the guest house team.


We wish you a pleasant stay at HZDR! For suggestions and requests we have a sympathetic ear.
