Höchst, a romantic town of 10,000 inhabitants, is located in the middle of the Odenwald, a low mountain range just outside Frankfurt on the Main River, and is surrounded by forests, half-timbered manor houses and medieval castles. Summer here is full of life as young people from over 60 nations come together to learn German and discover Germany with us!

I enjoyed studying in Höchst because it was fun, interesting and exciting experience. Not only my German improved, but I met new friends, visited new places. The summer camp has a great location, great building, amazing teachers and the office staff is always there ready to help you. If you want to learn German in a friendly environment and receive help all along the way, I highly recommend it!
