Why are we offering this programme?

Students sometimes have a hard time deciding which location to choose for a German course in Germany. Should they explore the attractions of a metropolis or experience the particularities of a romantic historical town. Our programme means you will not have to sacrifice anything - get the most out of your stay by experiencing the 2 Bs at the same time!

Studying German in Bamberg offers you the time and the proper atmosphere to concentrate on your training, with short distances to the school, the centre of town, historical sites, and Bavarian restaurants and pubs:
This is the traditional Germany

Your visit to Berlin enables you to get right to the heart of what Germany is today, following the fall of the Berlin Wall and German reunification. Berlin will also captivate you through its vitality, variety and fast pace of life:
This is the new Germany.
