Activities are offered four times per week, either in the afternoons or evenings, examples of which include bowling, basketball, football, boat trips etc. One full-day excursion is arranged on Wednesdays, usually to places such as Munich, Nuremberg or various Bavarian castles. There are no activities arranged for the weekend, which students can spend with their host families or their new friends from the school.
