The Hohenwart Forum is situated amid idyllic hilly scenery at the northern end of the Black Forest, between Stuttgart and Karlsruhe, near the renowned Maulbronn Abbey. 

The Forum's modern campus has fully equipped classrooms and well-appointed accommodation for course participants. The leisure-time opportunities include something for everyone, with plenty of creative and cultural activities as well as a wide range of sports and outdoor fun. We use a nearby gymnasium for various ball games and we also have access to a small sports field in the grounds. In Pforzheim there is an indoor swimming pool which we use. We also go on interesting hikes with the course participants. A perennial favorite on the leisure program in Hohenwart is the class trip to experience the romantic city of Heidelberg.

For example: amusement park*, arts workshops, badminton, barbecues, basketball, beach volleyball, bowling*, canoeing*, cinema*, class band, climbing* (rope climbing garden), disco nights, dramatic arts, foosball, gymnasium, hiking, horseback riding*, jogging, sports field, soccer, swimming, table tennis, volleyball

Most of our young guests arrive unaccompanied by plane. A bus transfer service from Stuttgart Airport to Pforzheim-Hohenwart is available between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. on arrival day. 
This may involve a wait with our Goethe-Institut staff member who meets all arriving participants at the Meeting Point in the international arrivals area. The staff member is easily identifiable, with an orange T-shirt and a Goethe-Institut sign. For organizational reasons, we regret that we are unable to provide you with the name of this member of our staff earlier than 3 days in advance of the course.
