German courses with accommodation in Hamburg – shared accommodation and host families
German is best learned locally. One of the most beautiful German cities is Hamburg. There you can book an intensive course in the language school Sprachschule Aktiv and enjoy the benefits of the city. Stroll along the Alster river after class or shop in the beautiful shopping arcades. For a successful German course, you need the right apartment. A hotel or a bed-and-breakfast is less suitable. You need to get together with Germans so that you can practice the language outside the classroom. We are happy to assist you in finding a suitable accommodation.
Learn German in Hamburg with the support of a host family
Accommodation in a host family is ideal for a German course in Hamburg. You have family access during your course. You eat with the family and can thus sometimes improve their German language skills. Thus, you not only learn German in the few hours of class, but also practice the language throughout the day. Of course, you have your own room. There you can retire and prepare the lessons for the next day.
Learn German in Hamburg in a shared flat
In a shared apartment, the relationship of the residents is not quite as close as in a host family. There too you will have a private room. You usually use toilets and kitchen together. Often the residents can get together, which offers you many opportunities to speak German. Although joint excursions are also possible here, but since each resident pursues a different profession, the possibilities are limited.

Learn German in Hamburg and live in a hotel, hostel or student residence
A hotel is the most expensive accommodation and not well suited for your purposes. You have little opportunity to speak German. The advantage is the greater comfort. You start the day with a delicious breakfast, in the evening, your bed is made and if you wish, you can end the day at the bar. Of course, we can also arrange a hotel for you, but point out that you hardly improve your German language skills during your free time.

Important: Insurance for student tenants
If you accept the offer with an accommodation in Hamburg, you should definitely have a health insurance from our recommended partner Care Concept AG from Germany and a liability insurance. Health insurance is compulsory for all non-EU students of our German courses and if you come from the EU, you should ensure that you are insured for long-term stays in other EU countries. Liability insurance can be used for all cases of damage to third parties, typically our landlords or host families require that one is insured against possible damage to apartments. We therefore advise you to take out this insurance.
