Konstanz is set in the South of Germany, beautifully located on Lake Constance near the Swiss Alps. This location offers itself to convenient travel into beautiful regions in Germany, France, Switzerland, Austria and Italy. With a community of only 81,000 residents, Konstanz has a more intimate feel than many larger cities; however, there is plenty to do and see in this scenic town including many outdoor activities such as swimming, sailing, hiking and climbing.
Students will live in double rooms in a local hostel in Konstanz which is equipped with kitchenette facilities.
