If you book a German language course at HORIZONTE, you have the following accommodation options for your language stay:

1. Accommodation in our on-site Horizonte residence

We recommend accommodation in our on-site residence with self-catering next door to the school, in the historic city centre. There are single and twin rooms available on two floors:

  • 4th floor: 24 rooms with private shower & toilet each and a big shared kitchen on the floor
  • 2nd floor: 14 rooms in small apartments (each with shared kitchen and bathroom) and studios (with private shower & toilet and kitchenette)

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

single room

The residence is not a hotel: There is no reception and no room service. If you cook and eat, you’ll have to do the dishes and clean the stove immediately afterwards. Your room will not be cleaned during your stay.

In order to guarantee cleanliness and silence we request the inhabitants to follow the House Rules Horizonte, which will be handed-out to everyone. The whole building is non-smoker zone.

2. Homestay

With most of our host families we have been cooperating for years. They offer guest rooms (single and twin) with breakfast and half-board.
In some of them you will also have your private bathroom.

Sheets and linen are always provided, please bring your towels.

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

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

You are expected to arrive on Sunday evening between 5 and 7 pm before the beginning of the course.

There is no reception at the school/residence. Please let us know if you cannot arrive in time, so we can organize your check-in. You will get a mobile phone number of someone living in the residence who will let you in.

Latest departure time: Saturday, the day after the end of the course, 10.00 am.

Homestay: You are also supposed to arrive on Sunday evening before the course starts. You will get the address about one week before the beginning of the course to arrange your arrival.

Please let us know your favourite type of room (e.g. if you absolutely want your private bathroom), we’ll try to meet your wish. Available accommodation varies according to the time of year and will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis.
Your accommodation is reserved from Sunday evening until Saturday noon after the end of your course.
