Deutsch Sommerkurse in Berlin Sprachenatelier

German Summer Courses in Berlin Germany

Learn German and experience Berlin!

Summer is by far the best time to visit Berlin and learn German! The weather is mild and warm and the sun doesn’t set until late, so the city is buzzing with life, during the day and especially at night.

The Sprachenatelier Berlin offers a variety of cultural activities alongside German courses during the summer. These activities include city tours by bus, boat or bike; excursions to the Berlin Wall, the Wall Museum and the Stasi Museum; visits to the Reichstag, the Brandenburg Gate and the Jewish Museum.

In addition to learning German, our weekend trips to other German cities (Leipzig, Dresden, Rostock, Hamburg) are a highlight of the summer. Barbecues and picnics in Berlin’s famous parks as well as beach volleyball on our own beach volleyball court as just as much part of our German summer program. Of course, there is also an opportunity to get to know Berlin’s nightlife better, in the many pubs and bars in Friedrichshain!

Which course material is on offer in our German summer courses?

Our Intensive German Courses use different textbooks that need to be bought at the beginning of the course. Depending on course level, the textbooks "Panorama" (Cornelsen) and "Aspekte neu" (Klett) are currently used in our German Intensive Courses. You can order the books on the publisher‘s website or from the Buchbox (bookstore in Berlin). Alternatively, you can also buy the books in our office (cash only).

Additionally, teachers also create their own teaching materials, that will be distributed as photocopies for free.
