1. Bayreuth

Why we like Bayreuth: Richard Wagner Festspiele, Bavarian food: Sauerkraut & Bratwurst, music and culture, great nature, fantastic outdoor opportunities for exchange students, e.g. horseback riding, sailing, fencing, soccer

Bayreuth is a smaller town in the North of Bavaria. Bayreuth is a great place for anyone interested in music and high culture. Throughout the world Bayreuth is known for its music festival, opera house and theater. The warmhearted Franconian people will make you feel at home immediately.

2. Berlin

柏林是德國最酷的城市 - 非常國際化, 有點波西米亞而且充滿文化氣息. 柏林有三百萬居民, 但是它是個很安全的城市, 而且許多地方到處都是湖泊和河流. 我們和柏林不同區域的學校合作, 寄宿家庭都安排近. 

柏林一個很有利的加值點是, GLS 就在這裡: 你隨時可以來和你的 GLS 諮詢輔導員談話問問題, 拜訪拜訪我們的辦公室, - 如果你有興趣的話 - 你可以額外訂德語課 (傍晚或假日時候). 如果你不想要整個週末和你的寄宿家庭共同度過的話, 你可以加入 GLS 德語語言學校學語言的學生, 參加他們的 週末旅遊節目

3. Bremen

在德國北方的不來梅 是隸屬漢撒同盟的羅馬貴族駐守之城市, 就像托瑪斯曼在他著名的小說 "布登勃洛克家族,一個家族的衰落" 裡面所描述的樣子. 如果你喜歡城市的生活環境, 而還仍然喜歡步行去到很多地方, 那麼不來梅是一個完美的選擇 - 不來梅絕對是一個值得散步的地方. 我們會把你安排在不來梅市界內, 你在那裡也會有當地的諮詢輔導員: 我們在不來梅和當地一個很有旅遊經驗的一組人合作, 他們在市中心有辦公室, 你一旦到了不來梅, 他們就會照顧你.

4. Hamburg

Warum wir Hamburg mögen: Hamburger Hafen, Alster, Elbe, Elbphilharmonie, Landungsbrücken, Fischmarkt 

Hamburg is a Hanseatic city and as city state also a state of Germany. It is the second biggest German city, only topped by the capital Berlin. If you want to live by the sea, experience the diversity of a big city and would like to enjoy the proper Nordic German kitchen, then Hamburg is the perfect spot for you.

5. Koblenz

Warum wir Koblenz mögen: Weinanbau, Deutsches Eck, Esskastanien (Maronen), Rheinischer Sauerbraten

Koblenz is one of the oldest cities in Germany. Its green wine-growing hills and the two beautiful rivers Rhine and Moselle are forming the shape of the town. Some parts of the city even belong to the UNESCO world heritage. Here you can enjoy the advantages of a smaller city combined with the beauty of nature.

6. Lübeck

Warum wir Lübeck mögen: UNESCO Welterbe, Kultur, Marzipan, Lübecker Weihnachtsmarkt, Buddenbrooks, home of Thomas Mann

Lübeck is situated by the Baltic Sea and is the biggest city of the state Schleswig-Holstein. The Hanseatic town is regarded as the “Gate to the North” and is located in the North German plain. The Baltic bath Travemünde is only 20km away and offers beach with promenade and unique beach chairs. Here you can enjoy the summer next to the beach.

7. Minden

Why we like Minden: Mindener Dom, Wasserstraßenkreuz, Kabarett, Westfälischer Schinken, Pumpernickel

Minden is a smaller town in North Rhine-Westphalia, located nearby several big metropolitan cities. Minden has a charming inner city with various historical buildings such as the Cathedral of St. Gorgonius and the Museum of Prussia. Moreover, Minden has beautiful natural surroundings and is located on the river Weser. This city is the perfect choice if you want to experience a contemplative life in a proper German town.

8. Nürnberg

Warum wir Nürnberg mögen: Kaiserburg, Frauenkirche, Bratwurst, Fußballclub 1.FC Nürnberg, Christkindlesmarkt, Lebkuchen

Nuremberg is perfect for you if you like living in a big city but also appreciate coziness. In Nuremberg you can find various cultural events, flea markets, open air pools, beer gardens, parks and historical memorials. The unique mixture of tradition, history and the friendliness of the Franconian people makes this city an amazing experience.
