As soon as classroom tuition will be possible again, the following regulations apply for German language courses at Horizonte:

Horizonte German language school is permanently adapting to the pandemic situation. We have been taking actions to meet the official regulations of the Bavarian government. This affects classes and housing as well as our leisure programme. To guarantee a safe environment for everyone, we have reduced the class size in our German language courses dramatically. With a maximum of 8 participants per group there is always a minimum distance of 1.50m between anyone. To keep social contacts at school to a minimum each group starts at a different time (between 8.30 and 9.30am).  You may start any Monday (except beginners – please see special starting dates above). Please follow the instructions of Horizonte staff at all times and let us know if you have any questions.

These are our current “Corona rules”. With the ever-evolving situation we will continue to amend them when necessary.

Quarantine at the Horizonte residence

Single room in Horizonte residence

If you need to stay in quarantine after entering Germany  or during your stay you are welcome to do so at the Horizonte residence. It is possible to stay completely isolated in our residence during quarantine. You will have your own room with a private bathroom, a kettle and a fridge. Please contact us if you have any questions.

Please be aware of current travel restrictions. If your country or region is listed as one of the international risk areas by the Robert Koch Institute, you need to be able to present a negative Corona test result when entering Bavaria. Even with a negative result you must self quarantine for 10 days. You can take a second test 5-7 days later to shorten the quarantine. People from countries where virus mutations have spread may be denied entry.

Horizonte Student voices

“Great school! I had a wonderful teacher and learnt so much in one month. There was a really good balance of grammar and conversation. Horizonte is a very professional and well organised school. There were lots of additional activities in the afternoons and saturdays, to allow us to socialise and practice German. Thanks everybody!”
(Barry Gerard O’Driscoll, Irland)
