Our partner school in Hamburg is located inside the stunningly beautiful Esplanade Building, an art-deco commercial building in the heart of the city center. On the 2nd and 3rd floors you’ll find 15 well-lit, spacious and modern classrooms where you can learn and improve your German in style!

Once class is over you can head up to the 200 square meter roof terrace and enjoy fantastic views of the Inner Alster, once of the city’s two famous artificial inner-city lakes, and the Jungfernstieg, home to world famous hotels and department stores. You can, of course, also head out and enjoy exploring the canals and bridges of a city whose aesthetic, livelihood and nature's is all defined by water - to the extent that some would argue it’s Venice that should in fact be referred to as the Hamburg of the South!

In terms of facilities, this school offers a self-study center with books, CDs and over 60 computers, as well as a media and multimedia room. Free WiFi is also included and is available in the school canteen as well.

Host Families

Living with a host family is the best way to immerse yourself in the language as you’ll get to continue learning after class by putting your language skills into real life practice, as you become part of the family!
If you select the shared room option, our partner school will take care to make sure your roommate has different mother tongue to you, encouraging you both to practice German as much as possible.  

At this school, it’s worth noting that the host families are not always ‘traditional’ families; there are also single parent families and single elderly people who will welcome you into their home.
