Learn German in Hamburg, Germany
Also Available:• Hamburg (Esplanade)
Hamburg is a beautiful historic port, but also a modern, thriving, city. This is a city of canals, parks, waterfront pubs and beautiful buildings. Though Hamburg is an international port and commercial city, this is also a city of culture and elegance, with opera, ballet, numerous theatres, medieval churches and museums. With 1.7 million inhabitants, Hamburg is a wonderful location in which to learn German, a city where there is always something new to see and do, always a new part of the city to explore.
Our school in Hamburg
Our German language school in Hamburg is located in a quiet pedestrianized street, lined with trees, right in the city centre. The school has over 20 classrooms, as well as a comfortable on-site student residence, located in the same building as the school. The area is full of shops, cafes and restaurants and is ideally located for exploring the rest of Hamburg.
You can learn German on a ‘Semi-Intensive’ German language course of just 10 lessons/week, or on an ‘Intensive’ German course of 25 lessons/week. The ‘Intensive’ course is the best choice, if you want to learn as much German as possible during your time in Hamburg.
Our Hamburg school also offers ‘Combined’ German courses, which are a combination of the ‘Intensive’ course, plus 5 private German lessons per week.
There is also a ‘German for Business’ course of 25 lessons/week.
Students can stay in the school’s own on-site residence, in either single or twin rooms. Each room has satellite TV and radio. There are bathrooms on each floor, but no kitchen facilities. This on-site student residence is a very popular choice for students who want reasonably priced but comfortable student accommodation, right in the centre of Hamburg.
Of course, our Hamburg school also offers accommodation in carefully selected German host families, with either self-catering (use of kitchen), bed and breakfast, or 2 meals/day. All the families live in good residential areas of Hamburg. Staying with a German host family is an excellent way to learn German, as well as come to a better understanding of German culture and the German way of life.
Our Hamburg school offers an extensive cultural program, including sightseeing tours around Hamburg, visits to local companies (Hamburg Brewery, TV and Radio stations), museum visits, full-day excursions to Lubeck, Bremen and Sylt, and much more!
How to get there
To get to Hamburg, fly to Hamburg Airport. Our school can arrange for you to be met at on arrival at the airport and taken to your accommodation, if you wish.
Live music in Hamburg
If you love live music, you will certainly enjoy a stay in Hamburg! Naturally, big cities are always more frequently visited by musicians on tour, and the north German metropolis is one of the cities in Germany where they usually stop. But there are also some things that are special about Hamburg’s music culture and I’d like to share some of my experiences here.
As far as genres are concerned, there is really something for every taste. Of course, Hamburg is famous as a host to several award-winning musicals and it’s actually the third biggest musical location in the world, only outdone by New York and London. As for classical music, you have the Music hall Hamburg (Laeiszhalle) where both the Philharmoniker Hamburg and the North German Radio Symphony Orchestra play regularly. The Elbphilharmonie Hamburg is still under construction at the time of writing. This massive concert hall located at the harbour in central Hamburg calls itself “Europe’s largest cultural construction site”.
It was quite interesting and well presented. I was lucky to have a 2 very good teachers. I would definitely recommend it.
Really enjoyed the classes, the teachers were very patient, polite, and thorough throughout the course and I really enjoyed my time there.
I had really great teachers during my course - one of them was actually the best teacher I ever had!
The course was good and it was great that it was all in German. The class size was fine (about 10) allowing for lots of opportunity to talk.
I enjoyed it all, the teachers, the host family, the office staff. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. I have already recommended a few friends to contact you for their next language immersion vacation.
The course was a lot of fun and I enjoyed it very much.
The school is truly an excellent institution, and I felt that every single hour in class was well worth the money paid. I would recommend the school to anyone!
The course was excellent, especially the teachers.
I thoroughly enjoyed my course, all the teachers were very professional and I will be going back when time allows. My accommodation was very clean and comfortable.
I enjoyed the school and in particular the first teacher we had. The accommodation was great: my host was very welcoming and spoke lots of german with me.
