GERMAN LANGUAGE COURSES FOR ADULTS IN VIENNA
In the city of Danube the former Habsburg splendor is still alive. Horse-drawn carriages run in fronto of elegant Gründerzeit buildings
and through the open-air concerts of classical music, the tradition never stops.
3 REASONS TO CHOOSE VIENNA:
- Location: learn German following the footprints of the princess Sisi, Mozart AND Haydn
- Quality: intensive courses, businesscourses, preparatory courses for language certificates

The former imperial city lies with its many buildings, such as the castles Schönbrunn and Belvedere, between the north-eastern foothills of the Alps in the north-west of Austria. Here lived the Empress Sisi, Mozart and Haydn played their string quartets. Today Vienna is a unique blend of tradition and modernity. Elegant Gründerzeit buildings, as the Habsburg residence 'Hofburg', stand next to modern buildings such as the Haas-Haus or the colorful Hundertwasser House. Our language school is centrally located in Vienna's embassy district opposite to the castle 'Belvedere'. The city centre can be reached in 15 minutes by public transport. From the central Stephansplatz you can explore the historic district on foot. On the boulevard 'Am Graben' there is a wide range of places to go shopping. Typical coffee houses invite you to try a piece of Sachertorte and a 'small brown'.
