Leisure Activities + Cultural Programs

Supporting program during our summer courses

During the summer courses the organization of leisure activities is included in the course fee. However, bus tickets, entrance fees, as well as all additional costs which are linked to the leisure-time activities are not included in the course fee. Nevertheless, many activities planned are free of charge.

Participation in the leisure-time activities is, of course, voluntary. It should be emphasized, however, that day trips and theater visits, in particular, are considered an integral part of the course, as they will also be dealt with during the lessons beforehand and you certainly shouldn’t miss out on getting to know the country and its people.

On the first day of the course (information event), our leisure team will inform you in detail about the planned program and will be available several times a week for information and various assistance (bike rental, tips for your own excursions, etc). Some activities require a minimum number of participants. Therefore, please register directly with the leisure team in good time – ideally when you come to see them to pick up your daily free apple.
