Learn German in Munster

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.

Available accommodation

  • Host Family
  • Shared Apartment

If you want to share accommodation with local German people 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 people 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.

Student reviews & feedback

It was really useful, I only went for one week, which is too short, I am planning to go another week. The teacher was very kind and even helped me when I did not understand, as he spoke a little bit of Dutch too.

Herr und Frau Knipp have been wonderful hosts. I must confess that I was a bit scared going to a host family, but they were kind and really cared.i

I would like to say Big Thanks to Stephanie who really went the extra mile to get me on a course last minute. Thanks so much for your help. My mother says you are an example of Putting the Customer First, thanks.

Exploring Münster

Hello everyone! I’d like to give you a small introduction to Münster, one of the most liveable cities in the world. It even won an award for that in 2004, and is still, to this day, famous for its quality of life. One reason for this is its friendly and helpful people. Another main reason is its eco-friendly methods of transportation. Münster is Germany’s bicycle capital. Hardly any other city is equipped with such a well-developed network of cycle paths and so many bike-related offers. It’s no wonder that travelling by bike is the most commonly used means of transport in this city! Read more...
