Host Families

Year round, we offer our students tailor-made accommodation:


Host Families

Living with a host family means the possibility of cultural exchange and personal enrichment for both sides. The host family is an important contact for you and an addition to your daily lessons, so that you can learn more about the way of life in Germany. Our host families offer a single or double room and you can choose between different boarding types.

Please find below all necessary information about our host families:
