The Boarding School

The students are accommodated in the boarding school of the Humboldt-Institut in Lindenberg. The attractive infrastructure of the residential campus and the care and attention given to the special needs of our students guarantee a swift integration into everyday life. Social interaction happens both on campus of the boarding school as well as outside of the school premises. Living and learning at the Humboldt-boarding school, with its international, cosmopolitan and open-minded atmosphere enhances not only our students' achievement at school, but also their personal development. Foreign boarders will additionally benefit from the continued linguistic advancement even after they have finished their language course with us.


Our boarding school is situated on a small hill in a beautiful park, adjacent to a little wood, both of which belong to the private school premises of the Humboldt-Institut. The breathtaking view over the Alps and the picturesque town of Lindenberg amazes locals and visitors at all seasons. Our spacious school premises located amidst pristine nature provide security and safety for our students away from busy streets and traffic. The center of the picturesque town is just a 10-minute walk away.
