What our students said about Munich

The city was clean, safe and really easy to get around. It was easy to feel at home in the neighbourhood. There were many cultural activities available, shopping was awesome, giving many options for a range of prices and styles. The architecture, to me, was one of the the most beautiful parts. Munich is also only a train ride away from lakes and hiking in the mountains.

Everything was perfectly located. School was right next to the railway station and the level was really appropriate! I learnt a lot and also got to know a lot of people. Fun afternoon activities were arranged 3 times a week that you could participate in without obligation! I recommend it to everyone.

Q&A - Questions and answers about Munich

  • As a complete beginner, you will have reached the B2-C1 level after one year. This depends on your native language, your previous knowledge, your motivation during the preparation and follow-up and how you integrate yourself in Munich in your free time. Accommodation with a host family and German friends and acquaintances will make it easier for you to use and consolidate the language outside of class.
    Sabine Krafack, LanguageCourse.Net - Oct 31, 2023
  • Yes indeed, cycling in Munich is a very good and enjoyable way to explore the city. You could check out Swapfiets if you are going to Munich for a longer period of time.
    Anja Rau, Pedagogic Coordinator from Carl Duisberg - Sep 28, 2023
  • For Telc B2 preparation courses, we recommend BWS Germanlingua or the DID Institute. For a particularly efficient learning progress, it would be advisable to choose a combination of standard course and Telc preparation course. This will help you get your certificate quickly!
    Lisa Schiwy, LanguageCourse.Net - Mar 24, 2023
  • If you are interested in an internship in one of our partner schools I recommend you contact them directly to see if there are any opportunities available at the moment.

FAQ about schools in Munich

  • Carl Duisberg has informed us that for public transport, they recommend a weekly or monthly pass for the M area. You can buy these at a vending machines in the metro. Unfortunately, there are no discounts for students. For more information, check out the Munich public transport website.

    Furthermore, there are also a lot of people who choose to get around by bike, so I recommend you also look into the possibility of renting a bike. Personally, I always find that the most fun, as you will immediately get to know the city much better.
