Target group

The Bayreuth Winter Programme welcomes all students who are interested in studying German in an international atmosphere.


The language classes offered at the Winter Programme in Bayreuth combine both language acquisition and the development and training of intercultural competence, as they are based on current topics in Germany. Additionally, grammar structures as well as speech and dialogue exercises are trained with material that reflects real-life situations.

Within each level, all courses deal with the following regional topics with varying degrees of difficulty:

  • Germany through the eyes of an outsider
  • Everyday life in Germany
  • Regional variety
  • Cultural variety
  • Germany in the world

At the Winter Programme Bayreuth, you have the chance to meet students from different countries. The culturally diverse backgrounds of the students turn discussions into a personal experience and a source of knowledge.

The language courses in the mornings with 20 hours per week are supplemented by compulsory special programme of intercultural communication in the afternoons. The communication courses are open for students from all language levels.
Our weekly programme will be rounded off by additional offers like seminars on German culture, an international choir, a theatre workshop, film nights, sports, and a literature café.
