The large number of students who return to the school each year is proof of its success.
The capital of Bavaria is a charming city at the foot of the Alps famous for the Oktoberfest and loved for its relaxed atmosphere. Sightseeing tours often start at Marienplatz with its impressing neogothic city hall and show the visitors countless baroque churches, the neoclassic buildings done in the early 19th century and Schloss Nymphenburg with its lovely park. In summer people relax in a beer garden, enjoy one of the many lakes in the suroundings of Munich or just have a rest on a meadow in Englischer Garten. Snow covers the city in wintertime. People go sledging in Olympia Park or skiing in the nearby Alps and on the popular Christkindl Markets you can experience traditional Christmas goods. Soccer matches, sport facilities at the Olympic site, exhibitions in museums and galleries, theatres, cinemas, fairs, concerts, discos - Munich really fulfils every wish.
The school is located in a wonderful, historic building right in the centre of the old town. It is very well connected to the public transportation system. The building is one of the most beautiful city palaces in Munich which has been built in 1688 as an example of classical Bavarian architecture. There are lots of restaurants, cafes and shops around. A student library and free internet access is at the student's disposal.
