Learn German at Alpadia Frankfurt-Lahntal

Age 10-17
Located in the upper part of the Lahn Valley, 120 km from Frankfurt, our centre is set amidst typical medieval architecture, close to an imposing castle perched on top of a hill.

Particularly well adapted to welcoming young students thanks to the calm environment and spacious infrastructure, the centre provides large classrooms, comfortable bedrooms and plenty of communal areas where students can play table football, board games and use the free WiFi access. Sports grounds, tennis courts and an outdoor swimming pool are located a few metres away, allowing students to take full advantage of the large choice of activities close-by.
