Situated in the foothills of the Bavarian Alps, the village of Stein an der Traun is a nature-lover's paradise. It is close to Chiemsee, Bavaria's largest lake, and the medieval towns of Burghausen and Wasserburg.
The romantic castle that houses the boarding school is situated at the center of Stein. The campus offers plenty of sports facilities as well as music rooms and workshops for creative activities. In the surrounding area our young guests will find a golf course and swimming lakes. We take our course participants on various outings, for example cycling, jogging and hiking as well as visits to the castles and monasteries in the surrounding area. The nearby town of Traunreut offers very good shopping opportunities.
