1. Bayreuth

Bayreuth is a small city with a university in the south of Germany, in Bavaria.  Bayreuth is famous because of the annual Richard Wagner festival, a high-society-event in Germany.  Bayreuth is surrounded by beautiful countryside and offers fantastic outdoor opportunities for exchange students, e.g. horseback riding, sailing, fencing, soccer.

2. Berlin

Why we like Berlin: Capital of cool, multicutural atmosphere, safe and very green city with lots of parks, rivers, lakes. Great host families, great schools, many with extracurricular clubs for arts, scientific and sports activities. Special plus: Our German language school is located in Berlin, so exchange students can join weekend trips we organize for learners of German

3. Bremen

Bremen in the north of Germany is a hanseatic and patrician city like the ones Thomas Mann described in his novels. Bremen is a perfect choice, if you like urbane surroundings, but still want to be able to reach a lot on foot - Bremen definitely is a very walkable city. Bremen is only 60 km away from the North Sea and has 10 universities. If you like a liberal and sophisticated atmosphere, Bremen is a good place for you.
