Our partner school occupies the second and third floors of a stunning house in the heart of Hamburg. The Art Deco building attests to the wealth of the inhabitants of the city and provides an ideal environment for studying. It includes 15 bright classrooms, a self-study centre and a spacious library with a wide range of books, CDs and multimedia material. Many computers are available to students in the computer room. The qualified teachers use state-of-the-art material to teach perfect German. After the classes, participants can socialize in the student lounge with vending machines for snacks and drinks - ideal for munchies! But the highlight of the course centre is the 200-m2-large roof terrace overlooking the Inner Alster - an artificial urban lake - and the buildings of the town centre. The school shares some of the rooms as well as the terrace with a training centre for adults offering management courses. You will therefore have the opportunity to meet German students and access the university library of the institute. Located in the centre of Hamburg, the school is well served by the excellent urban transportation system. If you prefer to walk, it will take you less than 5 minutes to reach Jungfernstieg!

Host family
This is a classic option, whose benefits are proven. Staying with a family means being fully immersed in the language and practicing German even after classes with your host family. You can opt for a single room or share a double room with another participant speaking a different mother tongue. The bathroom and other rooms of the house are shared with the host family, who will not necessarily be a traditional family, but may also consist of a single person or a mono-parental family. The commute from your accommodation to the school will be fairly short. You will choose from breakfast only and half board. In both cases, you will enjoy daily contact with the inhabitants of this open-minded city.

Arrivals after 10pm may not be possible, please check with the school first. This accommodation option will allow you to enjoy some independence while being in close contact with many international students staying at the residence, which is located in the town centre, just a few minutes from the school.

Discover the historical and architectural treasures of your place of stay together with the other students at the school! For a century, commercial activities have played an important role in this hanseatic city and are documented in many of its museums and historical buildings. The Hamburg Dungeon calls up memories of the gruesome times of the plague and witch-hunts. To cheer up after this journey through the dark chapters of Hamburg’s history, take a boat trip in its impressive harbour. Your partner school also organises excursions at the weekend to take you to discover the North Sea coast and cities like Bremen or Lubeck. A trip to Berlin will allow you to visit the Reichstag and the famous Brandenburg Gate. But if you prefer to stay in Hamburg – you will have no problem enjoying yourself in the numerous restaurants, cinemas and theatres of this wealthy city.
