The Berlin Villa has 40 beds and a big garden – ideal for a summer holiday with German courses, if you like it small, cozy and familial. The villa is like a safe island in the very center of bustling Berlin: it is located near Kurfuerstendamm, the most famous shopping street in the western city center. In the villa you live and learn German with students from all over the world, and together you will set out to explore Berlin. German courses take place in the morning, and every afternoon our guides show you the best of Berlin: We´ll go swimming at the Badeschiff, play minigolf at Mauerpark next to the Berlin Wall, and of course we´ll do some sightseeing, too: Checkpoint Charlie, Reichstag, Potsdamer Platz.
