Because being together with Germans is an important part of successfully learning the language, KAPITO arranges carefully chosen accommodation for its course participants in a private home or if desired in an apartment or hotel.
Most of the rooms are in the city centre, but anyone staying further out can reach the school easily by bus or bicycle. Some hosts will provide a bicycle either free of charge or for a small fee. The accommodation with families is usually rather more comfortable and spacious than with flatmates, but is not always as central.
The maximum distance between the place of residence and the school is 8 km. The room is only available for the period of the course (from Sunday to Saturday). Any other times must be agreed on in advance with KAPITO.
Private home including breakfast/half-board
Single room with use of bathroom in a family or with a single person. The room can be booked with breakfast or with half-board (breakfast and evening meal). In most cases it is also possible to use the kitchen.
By "family", we mean (married) couples with or without children, older couples, single mothers or fathers. "Single person" means: someone who lives alone and provides a room in his/her house or flat for guests.
Private home, self-catering
Accommodation in a single room in a shared flat with one or more German flatmates or with a family/single person. No meals included; kitchen and bathroom are shared. The hosts expect you to keep your room clean and tidy and also to help with the general housework (washing dishes, cleaning the bathroom, etc.).
Accommodation in a flat or one-room apartment. All apartments have a kitchen or cooking facilities and bathroom. The participants agree to use the apartment with care and to pay for any damages which may occur. The flat will be returned on the day of departure to the owner or a representative of the owner. As damages can never be ruled out, we recommend that liability insurance be taken out.
If you wish we can suggest a hotel for you. The price for a single room will be about 70-140 € per night, depending on the category of the chosen hotel.
