Historic health resort with Mediterranean climate

Bad Duerkheim is located in the mildest climatic zone north of the Alps. The weather forecast there calls for warm, sunny conditions. This historic health resort, which can trace its history back over a thousand years, nestles in the area where the eastern hills run into the Palatine Forest, one of the largest nature parks in Germany. Today the spa town has a population of approx. 20,000 inhabitants and is one of Germany’s largest wine-growing districts. It offers not only Mediterranean climate with southern flair, but also the proverbial cheerful nature of people from the Palatinate.


Bad Duerkheim's beautiful surroundings

Situated right on the German “Weinstrasse,” or wine trail, Bad Duerkheim is surrounded by numerous valleys, impressive hills and medieval fortresses and castles. It is the ideal starting point for hikes and bike rides, as well as for excursions to nearby sights and famous cities like Heidelberg, which is only some 30 minutes away and can be viewed from the town on a clear day.

Classes in Youth Hostel

We are guests in Christophorus House, a welcoming Youth Hostel owned by the Dioceses of Speyer, and situated in the western part of Bad Duerkheim. Course participants are accommodated in rooms with 2, 3 or 4 beds and shared facilities. Our classes take place on the very same premises, so that our students can conveniently reach their lessons without leaving the campus.


Great leisure facilities

The school, which offers a great infrastructure for sports and leisure activities, is within walking distance from the center and offers wonderful views past the town and stretching for miles across the Rhine valley.

St. Christophorus Youth Hostel with two- to four-bed rooms

Our course participants stay in the residence of our school, which is located in the friendly St. Christophorus Youth Hostel in the western part of Bad Duerkheim, not far from the town center. All rooms are multi bed rooms (with 2 to 4 beds), some of which have their own bathrooms and showers while others have shared facilities. Girls and boys stay on different floors of the same building, which has fantastic views over the valley of the Rhine River.


Roommates

As always, we will make sure that the students who share a room will be approximately of the same age, have a similar German knowledge, and do not speak the same native language, so that they can practice their German with each other.

Laundry

Laundry service is offered to our students free of charge once a week.

Daily manifold recreational program

After the classes, our counselors ensure that the students have a full sports and leisure program every day (included in the course fee). Volleyball, basketball, streetball and soccer can be played on the school’s own sports grounds. In addition, there are plenty of outdoor ping-pong tables, an arts and crafts room and a games room with a foosball table. The house’s own “Rick’s Cafe” is an inviting venue for private parties. We also have mountainbikes available for our students, and organize interesting bike rides.


Outdoor swimming pool in town

On hot summer days our guests can cool off at a pleasant outdoor swimming pool in town. The center of Bad Duerkheim can be reached on foot in 20 minutes. Whatever the students chose to do, our counselor staff guarantees thorough and reliable round-the-clock supervision.
