German language programme in Augsburg

Home town of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s family as well as the painter Holbein and the playwriter Bertold Brecht, Augsburg is a charming, laid-back city that is perfect for learning German and getting to know Bavarian culture for life here is more relaxed and less hectic here than in most other German cities.

Nowadays, the city has become a renowned university centre and hosts regularly cultural and musical events such as the Augsburger Jazz Sommer gathering every year various and numerous artists coming from all over the world, or the Augsburger Christkindlesmarkt.
