Mountains so close you can almost touch them: located in the middle of the Allgäu region – a popular holiday destination – our new course location is ideal for day trips to the peaks of the Allgäu Alps, to Lake Constance and to the world-famous Neuschwanstein Castle. The neighboring countries of Austria and Switzerland are a short trip from the school, as is the Munich metropolitan area.

The Oberallgäu course center offers a natural setting with fantastic views as well as great opportunities for outdoor activities. For example, canyoning and rafting are included in the varied leisure program!

The school

Our German courses in the Oberallgäu region take place at Jugendhaus Elias in friendly, modern classrooms.


Our students are housed in the same building where the classes are held. The residence offers modern twin rooms, all with en-suite bathrooms.

We carefully choose the students who will share a room with each other. We take care to match roommates who have a comparable German language level and are of similar age, yet speak different native languages. This way we encourage them to speak and practice German with each other outside of the classroom. Boys and girls are housed separately.

Our students receive three meals a day (breakfast, lunch and dinner).

Laundry service is offered to all students free of charge once a week for their personal laundry. Bed linen and towels will be provided and changed regularly.

Leisure time

Activity program

Every day we offer an attractive and varied activity program with sports, games or cultural events for the leisure time after class. Our staff will encourage and motivate students to participate in the activities. This leisure program is included in the tuition fees.

The following leisure activities are offered:

Playing field
Rope course
Swimming (outdoor pool)
Table football
Table tennis
Outdoor activities (e.g. canyoning, rafting)


Every Saturday, our staff members organize and accompany full-day excursions to attractive destinations. Every Wednesday, our students will have half-day excursions to sights and interesting towns within the region. The excursions and the entrance fees are already included in the course fee. Some of our offers include:

The Alps




Neuschwan- stein Castle


We guarantee reliable around-the-clock supervision, both during the excursions as well as throughout the whole course. All students are expected to attend all classes, meals and scheduled activities and excursions.
