Summer Camp

Learn German @ Munich Adventure Camp

Ages 12 - 17

The adventure camp (a beautifully restored former hotel) is south of Munich right next to one of the most pristine lakes in the German Alps, Lake Spitzingsee. The view is wonderful, looking out of the window you´ll see either lake or mountains. Our Adventure Camp is fantastic if you like sports & adventure - you´ll have lots of fun after German classes: we´ll go hiking with a GPS, build rafts or sleep outside by the campfire. Munich is just 50 km away, and every week we organize 2 trips to Munich. You´ll get to see all the highlights like OlympiastadiumSchloss Nymphenburg and of course Hofbräuhaus.
