Why we like Bayreuth: Richard Wagner Festspiele, Bavarian food: Sauerkraut & Bratwurst, music and culture, great nature, fantastic outdoor opportunities for exchange students, e.g. horseback riding, sailing, fencing, soccer
Bayreuth is a smaller town in the North of Bavaria. Bayreuth is a great place for anyone interested in music and high culture. Throughout the world Bayreuth is known for its music festival, opera house and theater. The warmhearted Franconian people will make you feel at home immediately.
Why we like Berlin: Berlin is the coolest city in Germany - very international, a bit bohemian and full of culture. Berlin has 3 million inhabitants, but it is a safe city and full of lakes and rivers. We cooperate with schools in different districts of Berlin, with host families near by.
The big PLUS in Berlin is, that GLS is here, too: You can talk to your GLS counselor anytime, visit our office, and - if you want to - you can book additional German courses (in the evenings or during holidays). And if you don´t feel like spending all the weekends with your host family, you can join the language students of the GLS German Language School on their weekend excursions.
