As one of our most popular destinations, there are many ASTUR Centers from which you can choose. We divided them into the following subcategories:

Allgau
Welcome to the Allgäu, an idyllic mountain region in the South West of Bavaria. Trips to the Allgäu provide everything you could hope for, when it comes to a truly Bavarian experience. Your activities will primarily involve activities in nature, ranging from sports to culture. Medieval castle ruins or fairy tale palaces wait for you to be discovered, as are the larger towns of Kempten or Kaufbeuren.

The southernmost region in Germany is famous for its breathtaking environment. The Alpine foothills offer fantastic hiking routes to mountain lakes and summits. During winter season you can enjoy yourself going skiing, sleighing or ice skating. Whether you are looking for action or quieter moments - South Bavaria holds plenty of programme opportunities for you.

Munich is perceived as the epitome of Germany. Some even say that the entire country is simply a representation of the Bavarian capital. While we may not agree with this statement, it does say a lot about Munich's high popularity. The city and surrounding area offer a vast number of travel opportunities. Tradition and science, history and the typical Bavarian mindset all come together here.
