Freiburg is one of the sunniest cities in Germany, home to 220.000 people and an old-established university. Its proximity to France and Switzerland, along with countless international visitors and students lend this city a unique multicultural flair. Typical features of the historic city center are its narrow alleyways and the small streams that flow between the old buildings. Students are housed just a 5-minute walk from downtown Freiburg at KL youth guesthouse.

The school

Our German courses in Freiburg are taught at KL guesthouse. The lessons are held in bright, modern classrooms with a great view.


Our students are accommodated in the same building in which the classes take place, so they can conveniently reach their lessons without leaving the campus. The KL guest house offers modern twin rooms. Showers and toilets (shared) are available in sufficient numbers on all floors.

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

Located in the tri-border region to France and Switzerland, Freiburg is the perfect starting point for many lovely destinations such as the Black Forest or Basel in Switzerland. On campus students find a sports field and the guest house’s rooftop terrace provides a stunning view over Freiburg!

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:

Party room
Table tennis
Sports hall
Swimming (outdoor pool)


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:


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.
