Learn German in Munster, Germany!
In many ways reminiscent of Oxford and Cambridge, Munster is a perfect university city, and is the ideal location for a German course! Learn German in Munster, and you’ll soon feel at home, as there are over 55,000 students in the city! With so many young people in the city, you’ll find plenty to keep you busy, from festivals and exhibitions, to the great nightlife of the bars, clubs and restaurants. In addition to a beautiful historic centre, Munster is also famous as the ‘Bicycle Capital’ of Germany. The best way to see the city is by cycling or rollerblading on the ‘Promenade’, a 4.5km tree-lined pedestrian boulevard that follows the route of the old city walls. Beyond the city, in the Munsterland region, you’ll find over 100 moated castles to explore! What’s more, Cologne, Hamburg, Berlin and Amsterdam all just a short train ride away.

If you want to share accommodation with German students or other students from our school during your German course, then stay in a shared student apartment. You’ll have a single room, and share the bathroom and kitchen with other students. Sharing with other students is a great way to make friends, and to learn new recipes! Alternatively, stay in a host family – you’ll have a single room, and the option of bed and breakfast, or half board (2 meals/day). Students choosing the half board option (2 meals/day) will receive three meals/day at weekends. If you want complete independence, then our school also offers studio apartment accommodation, with private bathroom and kitchen. Don’t forget to try some of Munster’s traditional Westphalian dishes whilst you’re there – we recommend Potthast, a delicious beef dish of the region.
Like our other schools in Germany, our school in Munster offers an extensive cultural activities program, including guided tours of the city, cycling tours, film evenings, pub tours and a farewell dinner. Our school also offers optional weekend excursions to locations such as Cologne and Hamburg. These weekend excursions include a sightseeing program with guide from our school.

Compared to cities like Berlin or Munich, the German city of Münster has certainly been more of an insider tip for tourists. We Germans, however, know that “Westphalia’s capital” is well worth a visit!
The University City combines the old and the new and is something for everyone who likes a city that is laid-back and safe, but at the same time very cultural and stylish.
Münster has always been one of Germany’s most popular cities for students so it’s no wonder that the city is also one of the youngest in terms of its population.
