Norbert Güthling, President   Lennart Güthling, Managing Director

Dear friends around the world,

The Humboldt-Institut can look back on a year with
many reasons to celebrate: Our school in Berlin-Mitte
was opened 5 years ago, the course center in Linden-
berg celebrated its 15th birthday and the first German
course in Constance started 30 years ago!
Besides being reasons to celebrate, these anniversaries
give evidence of client satisfaction and motivate us to
further provide an optimal environment to learn German
and get to know Germany for as many children, teen-
agers and adults as possible.
Despite the many celebrations, we do not remain idle
and constantly improve our offers. All news and the
updated course dates for 2020 are summarized as
usually in this brochure.
Additional information and images of all Humboldt-
Institut course centers can be found on our website
at www.humboldt-institut.org/en/. The new online
booking form makes it even easier to book one of our
courses.
We wish you a happy and successful 2020 and are
looking forward to welcoming you soon in Germany!

Yours,

Norbert Güthling              Lennart Güthling

Kempten
ages 14-18
Mountains so close you can almost touch them: located in the middle of the Allgäu region
– a popular holiday destination – Kempten’s location is ideal for day trips to the peaks of
the Allgäu Alps, to Lake Constance and to the world-famous Neuschwanstein Castle. The
neighboring countries of Austria and Switzerland are a short trip from the school, as is the
Munich metropolitan area. Even the Romans appreciated this favorable location, found-
ing their city of Cambodunum and making Kempten one of the oldest cities in Germany.
Whether you are interested in the many recreational opportunities in the surrounding
area or in a stroll through downtown, Kempten has plenty to offer, no matter what your
tastes.

Our students are hosted by convivial, welcoming families or at the JUFA hotel in this small,
thousand-year-old town located on the shores of Lake Constance and nestled among
orchards and vineyards. The view extends from the Allgäu region of Bavaria, across the
Vorarlberg region of Austria and on to the imposing peaks of the Swiss Alps. The mild
climate draws many international visitors to the lake, where they can visit such landmarks
as Meersburg’s almost 1,400 year-old fortress and its baroque palace.

Düsseldorf
ages 14-18
With a population of some 600,000 inhabitants, Düsseldorf is seen as one of Germany’s
most interesting and popular major cities. Enjoy a stroll along the banks of the Rhine at
the “Rheinuferpromenade” which links the traditional historic city center with the contem-
porary media harbor. The “Kö,” the bustling shopping street, is another wonderful place to
take in the sights, and as a cultural metropolis, Düsseldorf appeals to people from around
the world. The city on the Rhine is famous for the joie de vivre of its residents, and it has
an almost Mediterranean flair, particularly in the summer. Our house offers high-standard
accommodations and is located directly on the Rhine with a view of the historic city
center. Most major sightseeing attractions are within easy walking distance.

ages 15-18
Vienna, the city with the highest quality of life in the world, unites tradition and modernity
in its own unique way. With 1.8 million inhabitants, Vienna is both Austria’s capital and
its largest city – and the site of the first and only Humboldt-Institut center in neighboring
Austria. A true highlight of this program site is the location of our German courses: on
board of a school ship right along the Danube island! After class, Vienna also offers what
may be the world’s finest cultural scene: besides the old town and Schönbrunn Palace,
both of which are UNESCO World Cultural Heritage sites, Vienna also boasts countless
royal residences and palaces, museums, famous buildings and landmarks, the most inter-
nationally known of which are St. Stephen’s Cathedral and the Ferris wheel in the Prater
park. But architectural monuments are not all that Vienna has to offer: coffeehouses,
Sachertorte, Wiener Schnitzel and the Naschmarkt – the city’s wide variety of attractions
cater to every taste!
