Our Goethe-Institut staff member meets all arriving participants at the Meeting Point in the international arrivals area, and is easy to spot with a Goethe-Institut sign and an official letter for identification purposes. 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.

Please inform us of your arrival time and flight number at least three weeks before the course begins. The cost of the transfer service to the school and back to the airport is € 90 (Airport Munich) or € 35 (Airport Memmingen). Your child should have this amount in an envelope on arrival.
