The wealthy city of Wiesbaden lies right at the heart of the Rhein Main Area and is only a few kilometres away from the city of Frankfurt and Frankfurt airport. The town is famous for having
thermal springs that were used by the Romans. The hot springs of Wiesbaden have always attracted many visitors, including the poet and novelist Johann Wolfgang von Goethe or the classical composer Richard Wagner. This led to the establishment of another recreational activity – gambling. The casino of Wiesbaden has become a popular venue for the high society, rivalling those in Baden-Baden or Monaco

Host family accommodation in Wiesbaden

When booking our Language Camp in Wiesbaden, you will be placed at a local host family automatically. Through this method our guests will get first-hand experience of life in a German household with its every day culture and typical way of living. Depending on the family and the household, two to four students will live with one family, and depending on the time of travel more than one student of one nationality may live with one family.

In order to improve your language skills best, you have the option to book accommodation as the only guest of your nationality for an additional fee.

In a homestay you will also receive full board. You will begin the day with a typical breakfast in the morning. For the afternoon you will be given a packed lunch by your host family, and in the evening the family will cook a hot meal. The host family will find out from you what you like and don’t like to eat, and as a bonus, you will also get to know about German cuisine.

Please let us know in your application whether you are a vegetarian, a vegan or have any other dietary requirement. We will try to accommodate your preferences and cater for individual needs wherever possible.

More about Camp Wiesbaden

With 300,000 inhabitants, Wiesbaden attracts visitors with a variety of attractions and activities. Today‘s local recreational area at the state-owned Schierstein harbour, for example, provides excellent facilities
for watersports. Another attraction is the Nerobergbahn; this cable car travels directly to the top of Neroberg at 245 meters, where there are interesting historical buildings to visit. Wiesbaden is definitely worth a visit!

In total you will attend 20 units per week in order to improve your language skills. There will be no language course during the weekends.

Further information about ASTUR language courses >>>

As soon as your language course is over for the day and you've had your lunch, get ready for the afternoon activities. Every day you have a different choice between several workshops. Activities range from a trip to Neroberg to going to the swimming pool or bowling.

In the evenings you will return to your host families. After dinner you can spend some free time together.

You can take a peek look at what the first week at Camps Wiesbaden last year looked like like via this link to the camp schedule.

Lest the whether decides to ruin our plans, the first week of camp will follow this programme.

The free time programme is organised and led by our German speaking supervisors. There will always be a ratio of fifteen students to at least one supervisor. Our supervisors will know ‘their’ students, just as you will get to know your supervisors. They are always there for you to talk to, whether you feel unwell, have a question, or just simply want to have a chat. Naturally, our supervisors speak English, too. So, whenever there might be a problem, you will be able to talk about it and be heard.

Furthermore, we have a 24-hour emergency hotline every day which we will react to immediately should there be a bigger problem.

The highlight of the week is the day trip on Saturday. You will go to a town, such as Koblenz, where you will have a tour of the most important sights including a visit to Ehrenbreitstein Fortress and Deutsches Eck, where river Moselle flows into the imposing river Rhine.

The arrival day at the Language Camp in Wiesbaden is on Sunday, and departure day is on Saturday. Your parents will either bring you to the meeting point by car, or you will come by plane to Frankfurt  International Airport (FRA), or by train to Frankfurt main station. If you arrive or depart by plane or train, we recommend you to sign up for a transfer to/from the meeting point in Wiesbaden as early as possible upon booking. You will then be picked up punctually and won’t need to worry about anything. If you come by train to Wiesbaden main station, then the host family will pick you up there.

Please organise your arrival and departure so that you check in between 14:00 and 17:00 and check out between 08:00 and 11:00. Lunch is not included in the price of your arrival and departure day. If you need it due to early arrival or late departure times, you can book this for an additional fee. For arrivals and transfers outside the allotted times there will also be a surcharge.

What Camp Wiesbaden looks like...
Organising your free time on camp

All free time activities on camp are put together by our experienced team of camp supervisors. They are in charge of all activities and provide guidance and supervision. It won't get boring on camp.

Our camp staff can rely on its long-time experience. They know which activities will be the most exciting and enjoyable.

Our teamers are here for you

Our teamers are always approachable. And we can guarantee that there are enough teamers on camp that no student or their needs will be overlooked.

We guarantee as well that the ratio of participants' numbers to camp staff is well balanced. The supervisor-participant ratio of 1:15 is keenly observed.

Wiesbaden is not the camp you are looking for?

There may be many obstacles which can prevent you from coming to camp. The location may be to far away from home. Possible dates may be unconvenient or something else makes attending just impossible.

In these cases we would like to offer another camp from our portfolio. Maybe one of them is the one for you!
