Learn German in Switzerland

Study German in Switzerland, a multicultural country known for its rich cuisine and beautiful landscapes.

Switzerland is a paradise for lovers of the outdoors – with its huge forests, crystal clear lakes and snow-covered mountains, this is a fantastic place to go walking, cycling, skiing/snowboarding or just to enjoy relaxing in the countryside. Of course, there are also vibrant cities with bold architecture and world-class museums.

With its four languages and fascinating mix of German, French, Romansh and Italian culture, Switzerland has a unique and diverse personality. It is this combination that also led the country to develop its much-loved cuisine, including deliciously silky chocolate, flavorsome cheeses and comforting Alpine favorites like fondue and raclette.
