Idyllic health resort in the south of Germany

The historic monastery town Bad Schussenried is nestled in the beautiful, idyllic hill country between Lake Constance and the Danube and Iller rivers. Known as much for its spas, therapeutic peat pulp baths and the natural beauty of its surroundings as it is for its cultural monuments, this attractive resort in the heart of the Upper Swabian region is an ideal starting point for a wide variety of excursions.


Residential school on the edge of a magnificent park

Our school is housed in a modern building complex on the edge of a magnificant park. The city center of Bad Schussenried lies within walking distance of approx. 5 minutes. The course center is a residential school, i.e. the classrooms are located within the same building complex as the student dormitories.


Modern school facilities

Providing space where up to 300 students from all over the world can live and study makes Bad Schussenried Germany's largest boarding school for studying German as a foreign language. The school's rooms meet the highest standards, as does its incredible infrastructure: in addition to pursuing traditional athletic and recreational activities, students can also take advantage of a large indoor swimming pool, indoor tennis facility and a climbing wall.

Residence

Our students stay on campus in the residences of our school in Bad Schussenried. All rooms are two bed rooms and all have their own balcony with a very nice view, either of the school's own park or of the city center of Bad Schussenried. The rooms all have en suite facilities and enjoy the same high quality of furniture, which is modern, practical and at the same time friendly (wood) and functional.


Roommates

We make sure that students are separated in the residence by age (juniors 10-14 years of age and teenagers 14-17 years of age) as well as by gender. We also always try to place people of the same German language level, yet of different mother tongues together in a room, so that they will be encouraged to practice their German with each other.


Food and Laundry

We provide full board for our students, which includes three main meals a day (breakfast, lunch and dinner). Additionally, fruits are available any time. Laundry service is offered to our students free of charge once a week.

Impressive leisure facilities

Our school in Bad Schussenried impresses our students with its fantastic recreational infrastructure.


Sports, arts and crafts

Young athletes will find many sports facilities like a huge outdoor playing field and lawns, a gymnasium for soccer, volleyball, basketball, handball, badminton, as well as a large indoor swimming pool, a sauna, and mountain bikes for long rides through the magnificent surroundings. A miniature golf course and an indoor tennis court are situated just next to the school.


Budding artists can give wings to their creativity in our arts and crafts rooms and workshops for such activities as window painting, silk painting, tie dye, woodwork and soap stone carving, while at the same time games and party rooms (including pool, foosball and ping-pong tables, darts etc.) guarantee an interesting and diverse leisure program.


And many more options

Facilities also include an Internet room, a large barbecue area with a grill, a sunbathing area and an indoor climbing wall.


Regardless of the weather, our students can always have fun after class. And our full time staff of counselors and facilitators will make sure that everyone will feel integrated, and that the vast array of activities they organize includes a great option for every student.


Bad Schussenried's recreational possibilities

The town of Bad Schussenried offers additional sports and recreational opportunities, such as hiking, an outdoor swimming pool just next to the residence, a number of tennis courts, etc. It is also the ideal starting point for excursions, as it lies in the heart of the Upper Swabian region. On weekends, we also organize day trips to famous destinations such as Munich and Stuttgart, Augsburg, Constance, and the world-famous castles of King Ludwig II (Neuschwanstein and Linderhof).


Furthermore, horseback riding and tennis lessons as well as hip-hop dancing classes are offered in summer. These activities are not included in the course fees.
