Are you looking for German courses for a group or school class? In the course locations

groups are welcome all year round. Additional course locations are open in the summer. For group bookings of 10 or more, the Humboldt-Institut offers special rates outside the high season. Course fees include:


  • 25 or 30 lessons of 45 minutes per week (depending on age)
  • Small classes with about 15 students
  • Course materials and a certificate
  • Accommodation with full board
  • Daily leisure and cultural program
  • Half-day excursion every Wednesday and full-day excursion every Saturday incl. entrance fees
  • Airport or train station transfer on arrival and departure
  • Free place for one accompanying person, further free place for every 15 additional students

Recreational and cultural program

During the recreational program, all students have the opportunity to apply what they have learned in class. Every day after class, our pedagogical team organizes a varied leisure program with sports, creative, social and cultural activities. This increases motivation, promotes tolerance and ensures that students enjoy learning German as a foreign language. In addition, there is a half-day excursion every Wednesday and a full-day excursion every Saturday.

As a special highlight, we also offer skiing and snowboarding courses in winter at our course location in Lindenberg for an additional fee.


Groups stay in our schools, which combine classrooms, recreational activities and accommodation under one roof. Accompanying persons are accommodated in single rooms. All rooms have their own bathroom with shower and toilet. In Lindenberg, there is the possibility to stay with host families on selected dates.


Classes are usually held from Monday to Friday and cover listening and reading comprehension, writing, grammar and oral expression. Our teachers are happy to integrate specific subject areas, such as preparation for a particular exam. On request, we also offer individual appointments for groups to take telc exams at various levels (A1 – C1).

Arrival and departure

If the course lasts one week, arrival is on Sunday and departure on the following Sunday. For a stay of two weeks or more, arrival is on Sunday and departure on Saturday.

What is my level of German? You are welcome to have your German language level tested at our institute before your course starts. Please call to make an appointment for the test. Alternatively, you can test your German skills by taking our online placement test. Please note: the online test is only a rough guideline; it does not replace the placement test in the school.
