Covid-19 Update

Current situation

We are running face-to-face classes in a safe environment.

3G rule

The 3G rule, even though not mandatory in Germany anymore, will still apply for German Language Courses at Horizonte until further notice.

That means that in order to enter our premises, attend our courses or participate in our leisure programme, you will need to show proof of one of the 3Gs:

You must show the respective certificate together with your ID or a comparable document.

During high risk stages of the pandemic it might be necessary to get tested in addition to beeing vaccinated/having recovered.
This does not apply for those who have already received a booster vaccination according to current standards. You can get a free booster vaccination here.

German Language Courses

  • If you have only mild symptoms please only come to school with a negative test result (even if you are vaccinated)
  • If you tested positive for Covid-19 you must isolate yourself immediately and should make an appointment for a  PCR-test at a local doctor’s office
  • Regular ventilation during class (regardless the weather/temperature)

These regulations are subject to changes and are vaild until further notice. Our general terms and conditions apply.

The 2G rule still applies for accommodation. You need to be fully vaccinated or show proof of recovery from Covid 19.

Horizonte Building

During the Covid-19 pandemic the advantages of our on-site residence are not only living right next door and being surrounded by like-minded people. It is also a safe place to stay in terms of the pandemic. Here’s why:

  • All residents are vaccinated / have recovered from an infection with Covid-19
  • You will have a private bathroom
  • No need to use public transport, since we are located in the city centre and everything is within walking distance

Please note that due to hygienic measures double rooms are only being rented to two persons travelling together. Homestay can not be guaranteed at the moment. Find out more about our accommodation options.

Travelling to Germany during Covid-19

Regulations vary depending on whether the country you are travelling from is listed as a high risk area or an area of variant of concern by the Robert Koch Institute. In both cases you will need to complete the digital entry registration form. For further information please go to Auswärtiges Amt.
