There are single and twin rooms available on two floors:

4th floor24 rooms, each with private shower & toilet and a big shared kitchen
2nd floor14 rooms in small apartments, each with shared kitchen & bathroom and
studios (with private bathroom and kitchenette)

You always get a single room, unless you book a twin room together with another person.
There is WiFi available throughout the building. There is a washing machine and a dryer in the common area and a library with mainly German literature.
Sheets and linen are always provided, please bring your own towels.

Horizonte Building

Please be aware that the Horizonte residence is not a hotel: There is no reception and no room service.
When you cook and eat, we expect you to do the dishes and clean the stove immediately afterwards. A professional thorough cleaning of the communal areas is carried out twice a week; the large kitchen on the 4th floor is cleaned regularly. In the shared apartments on the 2nd floor, the residents themselves are responsible for cleanliness.

You are also responsible for keeping your room clean. It will not be cleaned by our staff during your stay. You can borrow a vacuum cleaner at our office during office hours.

In order to guarantee cleanliness and silence we request the residents to follow the Horizonte Housing Rules, which are handed-out to everyone upon arrival.
The whole building is non-smoker zone. Any kind of fire is strictly forbidden, also on the balconies.

You will be charged a security deposit (100 Euro) for both residence and homestay accommodation upon arrival.

2. Horizonte homestay


Staying at a host family during your German language course at Horizonte enables you to fully immerse in German culture. You regularly get the chance to practise your German (e.g. over dinner) and experience German hospitality. Most of our host families have been part of the Horizonte-family for years.

The host families offer guest rooms (single or twin rooms) with breakfast or half-board. In some cases you will also have your private bathroom. Sheets and linen are always provided, please bring your own towels. Your host family will offer to wash some of your clothes if you stay longer than 2 or 3 weeks.

Most of our homestays are located in residential areas and usually not farther away from the school and the city centre than 20 minutes by bus or bike.

We want you to enjoy your stay and benefit from being part of a German host family. But please be aware that they still have their day-to-day life going on. So please  remember to respect their privacy, the family’s habits and that they may be busy sometimes. They are not responsible for your entertainment.

If you have any questions or if there’s any problem that you cannot solve directly with the host family, please let us know immediately.

All our host families are carefully and personally selected by us and meet the IALC quality standards.

You are also supposed to arrive on Sunday evening before the course starts not earlier than 5 pm. You will get the address about 1 week before the beginning of the course to arrange your arrival.

You will be charged a security deposit (100 Euro) for both residence and homestay accommodation upon arrival.
