Learn German in the castle under the other castle
Perhaps Schloss Stein is the most spectacular place where the Goethe-Institut offers a summer language camp. It consists of three parts, of which our accommodation, the Lower Castle, lies at the foot of the 50-metre-high rock, then there is a Cave Castle behind it, which was built into the rock’s massive cave, and the High Castle, a structure dating back to the Middle Ages on top of the rock.
Add to this the fantastic landscape of the Bavarian foothills of the Alps with the mountains on the horizon and a magnificent landscape of forests, meadows and lakes. Since the Lower Castle is used as a boarding school, our camp participants find themselves in a perfect environment to enjoy their German course during their three weeks in Stein. For this purpose, the young people aged between 12 and 16 sit in their classes every day in two or three teaching blocks, together with students from all over the world. During 24 hours of lessons each week, we learn vocabulary and grammar, practice speaking and listening, and we will have some exercises in reading and writing, as well.
The German lessons will be fun with little language games, refreshments and drinks will be available between classes. Three meals a day, each with a vegetarian option, give our language camp participants the necessary power for successful learning and the many activities that follow. In addition to indoor and outdoor sports, the school has music- and workrooms, which we intend to use frequently.
