Learn German in Munich (Historic Centre)

Learn German in Munich and experience a fascinating city! This beautiful city is located at the foot of the Alps, in the Bavarian region of southern Germany. The very heart of the city is the impressive Marienplatz which is home to the Neogothic Rathaus (city hall) and only four minutes’ walk from our Munich (Historic Centre) school. This is the perfect base to explore Munich from, as the Marienplatz is also the location of one of Munich’s largest U-Bahn stations.

Munich is a city of architecture, culture, festivals, concerts, café culture and biergartens, always with plenty to do and see. Many people will recognise the famous Oktoberfest, the world’s largest beer festival which has been attracting visitors to Munich, hoping to sample beer and other culinary delicacies every October since 1810.

Discover the more contemporary side of Munich with shopping in the luxury boutiques around Maximilianstrasse, a visit to the BMW Museum, or the Olympic Park which was built for the 1972 Olympics, but today is a popular venue for music concerts and festivals.

If you are looking for a more peaceful side to Munich, local people will tell you that one of the prettiest places to visit is the Englischer Gardens, an urban park in the very city centre that is even larger than New York’s Central Park!

Our school in Munich (Historic Centre)

Our Munich school is located right in the historic centre of city, just 4 minutes’ walk from the Marienplatz, Munich’s main city square. Here you will find a major metro stop and the beautiful neo-gothic town hall, a favourite with photographers!

Our school is in a beautiful 17th century building, with 8 spacious classrooms, a student kitchen, free Internet access and a garden, where you can relax and practise German with other students.

Because I had only two weeks I didn't expect to gain a great deal of knowledge. However, I found that I had more than enough with which to work on my own during the next year. After that, I hope to return to Germany for more training.

Teachers were excellent and I like having two teachers with such different approaches. Textbook and other materials were very good. Other students were interesting and we could communicate together pretty well. The two free-time activities (Faust opera and a film) were excellent and not expensive. Location of school and of accomodations were easy to reach by U-Bahn.

The school was great. The staff were vey helpful when I wanted to move class. I loved my teacher and I thought the classes were very enjoyable, funny and beneficial. Even though everyone was a different age or nationality we all got on really well. I will really miss the school. My accommodation was perfect. My host family were the perfect hosts. Our room was lovely and comfortable. Nice and big with everything you needed. She kept our room clean for us and did some washing too. The food was delishious too and we didn't want to leave. My three weeks in Munich was one of the best times of my life and I already really want to go back.

Really friendly people and great teacher. I enjoyed my time in Munich a lot. Good textbook, which I hope to use more now I'm back home. I enjoyed sharing with other students. The accommodation was very comfortable and suitably furnished, so enhanced a pleasant stay. As the people I shared with did not feel confident to speak German at home, we spoke in English, if people really want to use the language, either putting students of the same ability in one flat or staying with a host family is a better idea

The course was awesome! I met so many people from around the world and learning German in Germany with other people who don't speak your language really helps the German conversation improve. My apartment was great. I had roommates from around the world which made living always interesting. I recommend this course to anyone. I wish I could have stayed 2 more weeks.
