Country

Yes, here you'll improve your German in a medieval style castle-fort just on the edge of Munich. The Castle is located on the banks of the river Isar close to lots of local activities. Of course, you'll have plenty of opportunities to visit Munich city, but you'll also get to see lots of other cool places in the area.
The castle was built in 1843 by a rich eccentric, and (thankfully) has been recently renovated: Throughout the year it welcomes international seminars, so is extremely well-equipped for summer fun. Located about 10km south of the centre of Munich, it's the ideal place for mixing some city visits with other more outdoor excursions.

General info

This summer language camp is strictly for 14-17 year olds. You do German in the mornings, then after lunch and a break, you get to visit the region during the activities and excursions planned by the school and accompanied by camp staff.

German courses

As with all our programmes your German courses start with a test... (!) though not a nasty one - just a test to find out your level so that you can be placed in the right class and make the most progress. The classes are sorted both by level and by age. Remember though, you need to be at least an elementary student (that is, have taken some German at school or study some German) to join the camp. It's not for complete and utter beginners.
There are four lessons are day, most in the mornings, five days per week.

Excursions

This programme include one full-day excursion a week, and one half-day excursion per week. (You can't stay in the castle all the time!) Generally you'll go to Munich or explore other sights in the area.

Activities

Apart from the German lessons and the excursions there are also plenty of things to do. Two activities are planned every day, either in the camp or around the camp rafting, swimming, volleyball, mini-golf, etc etc. The activities are done always run by the school with surveillance present, and have as always the idea that they provide an environment for practicing German.

Arrivals et Departures

The castle is not too far from the centre of Munich, making it easy to get to - and transfers are included in the price.
