    Radolfzell  

    Carl Duisberg Centrum

    The language school Carl Duisberg Centrum was founded in Radolfzell, Germany in 1981. Radolfzell is the ideal place for learning languages: everything is within walking distance, the people are friendly, and our international guests are quickly made to feel at home. The peaceful town of about 30,000 inhabitants is a great place to improve your language skills. Our young learners can have fun with other kids and teens from all over the world. The town is located right next to the lake and close to Switzerland, Austria and the Black Forest, so there are plenty of exciting excursion destinations nearby. The lake and the beautiful natural surroundings are ideal for sports activities like swimming, biking, hiking, canoeing and horseback riding. The Carl Duisberg Training Centre Radolfzell has an informal, personal atmosphere. For many of our young German learners, it is their first time abroad, so our top priority is to provide them with full-service care and full-time supervision. Our training centre is located in a charming villa right next to the “Stadtgarten”, a beautiful public park, with a view of the historic old town.

    The school address is: Fuerstenbergstr. 1, 78315 - Radolfzell (Germany).

    Other comments: One suggestion: a guided visit to the city I did not like: in a German course you expect a prepared guide and someone who speaks German, while the person who accompanied us did not speak German, and knew nothing at all about the city.
