Lindenberg: A great destination to improve your German

Head to Lindenberg during your Transition Year to study German in Germany at a top language school. Lindenberg is a small pretty town in Bavaria, Germany – located in the foothills of the Alps and within close proximity to Austria and Switzerland. It is an ideal destination to study abroad and will appeal to students who enjoy the outdoors as well as those wanting to study in a scenic environment.

An impressive school

Stein Study’s study abroad programmes in Lindenberg are run at The Humboldt-Institut which offers German courses for all ages. Its beautiful campus in Lindenberg houses up to 200 students and is open all year round. Students can opt to stay on campus in dorms, or with a local host family. The school has a family atmosphere and community spirit making it easy for students to settle in and thrive in their studies.

Recreational opportunities

The school has impressive recreational facilities: a sports court and gymnasium, outdoor playing fields and lawns, a climbing wall, a miniature golf course, a sauna and an indoor swimming pool. Students can use the school’s mountain bikes for long rides through the magnificent surroundings. Or if you prefer less sporty activities, there are arts and crafts rooms and workshops, a games room for table football, ping pong and pool, a movie room, a party room and an auditorium.

Activity programme

The school runs a busy activity programme to help students thrive and be sociable. Activities are run in the afternoon and evening after class and excursions take place each Saturday.
