Aside from the study programme and language courses we offer a great variety of cultural and leisure activities outside the classroom. On the weekends we will show you the best of Darmstadt and the surrounding region to see more of Hessen and Germany and to get to know the people, the cultural heritage and the beautiful landscape of this federal state. During the week we will meet in the evenings to spend time together. In addition to the official opening and closing ceremonies we will organize a “Hessen Career Fair” just for you.
