The regular course programme is complemented by a variety of educational study tours in and around Frankfurt am Main as well as two weekends away from Frankfurt. These trips offer you some valuable and interesting cultural insights into life in Germany and Europe. You will have the chance to eat and drink local specialities (beer, wine, apple wine, Grie Soß, and many more), to make use of the German skills you picked up in your language course and to get to know Continental European cities and lifestyles. All this makes the Frankfurt Summer School an informative and entertaining, simply an unforgettable and worthwhile experience.
Below you can find some more information about the trips and the locations we will be visiting. Travel and accommodation costs are covered by the programme fee (exception Berlin):
Optional Excursion to Berlin
Spend a weekend in Berlin in your second week (28 July – 30 July). We will arrive by train and we will stay in a centrally located hotel. A guided bus tour will show us around the most important sights of Berlin and you will have lots of time to explore the city on your own.
Please note that the expenses for the optional visit to Berlin are not included in the programme fee. However, if you choose to take part in this optional visit we will provide accommodation in Berlin for the weekend.
In addition to that, Frankfurt Summer School will provide an overview of cultural events in and around Frankfurt including enjoying traditional food, concerts, theatre plays and more.
