  The European XFEL has successfully achieved a first lasing in May 2017. Meanwhile, a THz radiation for pump-probe experiments etc. is under consideration at the European XFEL using laser-based and/or accelerator-based techniques. A superconducting THz undulator as an afterburner is one option, but a challenge to this approach is the usage of very high electron-beam energy up to 17.5 GeV and the requirement of a high magnetic field. In this presentation, we will report the preliminary study of the THz undulator design and the radiation properties at the European XFEL.
