Come to Spitzingsee, it is an experience for a lifetime! My son Sergio spent 4 weeks learning German and doing a variety of fun activities with new friends from all over. It is such a great experience. As a parent of a teen I can not recommend it more. It is the best investment in our child we have made over the years.
