Beautiful historic spa town

With a population of approx. 26,000 people, Schmallenberg is a beautiful spa town with picturesque half-timbered houses, located at the edge of the “Rothaargebirge” mountain range. The historic city center enchants visitors with a wide range of black and white houses with natural slate roofing, bay windows, gables, attics and ornate doors.

Popular recreation area in Germany

Schmallenberg is a typical town of the Sauerland region, which is known as the “land of a thousand mountains” and anybody who has visited there will understand how the region has earned its reputation as one of Germany’s most popular recreation areas.

Schmallenberg's marvelous surroundings

It is not only the healthy climate and the altitude (ranging from 350 to 818 meters), but also the surroundings, which include marvelous mountain ranges and extensive forests, dotted with attractive little towns and rustic farms, that make this region north of Frankfurt so special.

German classes at Akademie Bad Fredeburg

We will be hosted by the Akademie Bad Fredeburg, which is located in a small town of the same name (which is part of the community of Schmallenberg). The very picturesque center of this little resort town is only a few minutes’ walk away from the school. The program center itself is a very attractive house with an appealing, wonderfully personal atmosphere. It is situated on a hill on the edge of town, in a very quiet neighborhood, amidst green space, where our students can enjoy the tranquility of the beautiful landscape surrounding them, while enjoying the wonderful recreational facilities of the house that guarantee amusement and fun.

Perfect place to learn German

The students will be accommodated in the very same building where our classes are held, which adds to their convenience. All in all, Akademie Bad Fredeberg in Schmallenberg is a perfect spot for a German course in the highly attractive Sauerland region and a great starting point for interesting excursions.

Friendly atmosphere at Akademie Bad Fredeburg

The same attractive building, the Akademie Bad Fredeburg, which houses our classes, also houses our students. The incredibly friendly atmosphere of the house will help the students to soon feel at home at the Akademie Bad Fredeberg in Schmallenberg.

Rooms and roommates

Students live in double and a few multiple occupancy rooms, each of which has a shower and restroom facilities. Course participants are divided by gender, and male and female students live on different floors or wings of the same building. When choosing roommates we are very careful to select people of very similar age and similar German knowledge, but with different native languages, to encourage them to practice their German with each other.

Full board

The kitchen staff of the school serves three main meals and two snacks each day (full board is included in the course fee), and takes care to include a large variety of dishes and small details like homemade cakes.


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

Large variety of leisure activities

Our students will find that the town of Bad Fredeburg offers a large variety of leisure activities. In the “Akademie” itself there is an auditorium with a stage for plays and parties, a lawn that serves as a playground, a gymnasium for volleyball, basketball, soccer etc., a campfire and barbecue site, a party room and a summer terrace, as well as ping-pong and darts - everything our students need to have a good time, no matter what the weather is like.

Mountain biking

Students who love mountain biking or a leisurely ride on their bike will enjoy the “Bike Arena Sauerland,” a huge array of bike tracks that clearly indicate which track is suitable for which user, the athletic or the leisurely type. Of course, we provide mountain bikes to our students free of charge and also organize bicycle trips for them.

Recrational opportunities in Schmallenberg and its surroundings

Tennis courts are close to our school (500 m); the cost of using them is not included in the course fees, however. A short walk away from our language center, our students can enjoy a great indoor water fun park, a miniature golf course, as well as the very picturesque center of the little town of Bad Fredeburg. An outdoor swimming pool can be found a little further away, in Schmallenberg (8 km). Our counselors will certainly provide transportation there.
