FOKUS leisure programme

Learn German right in the heart of Munich

Our school is located in the city centre of Munich. In the immediate vicinity / close proximity, you can find cosy cafés, stylish restaurants, fancy boutiques and numerous celebrated museums and art galleries exhibiting everything from the Old Masters to modern art. All this can be found within a 10-minute walk from our school.

Munich is a very popular city due to the high quality of life and the thriving economy. 1.3 million inhabitants make Munich one of Germany’s most important commercial and academic capitals. The ‘Hochschule für Musik und Theater’ and the technical university (Technische Universität) are both renowned universities worldwide.

Insofar as Munich is modern, the surroundings are equally traditional: the landscape is shaped by lakes at the foothill of the Alps and panoramic views of the mountains while the world famous royal palaces look down upon centuries-old churches and monasteries. Whether you would like to go hiking in the mountains or sailing on Lake Ammersee – these attractions are just a couple of suburban train stations away.

Discover the German language – and then Munich’s attractions!
