Carl Duisberg Centre is a high-quality education centre in the areas of international training and qualifications. Life-long learning is central to its promotion by providing students with professional language courses, intercultural training and wonderful experiences abroad and work-related training.

The courses provided are aimed at all age groups and life stages from students exploring the world for the first time to professionals who would like to improve their skills for future employability. The school also has a widespread network to serve customers wherever they may be around the world.
The core values are centred around the following five elements: Connecting people, cultures and countries, working together to reach a common aim, serving the public good while remaining economically viable and working with top quality standards.
The language courses are professional, targeted and effective so that students can achieve their learning goals. All of the material, as well as teaching methods, are comprehensive and personalised so that a perfect environment can be created, which paves the way for a successful learning experience.
The school has locations in four different parts of Germany with each city having its character and history. These locations are Berlin, Cologne, Munich and Radolfzell on Lake Constance. Participants choose if they would like to study in one area of Germany or to change to a different city.
The youth program takes place in Radolfzell near Lake Constance, where the course will be educational and fun for young learners.


The town of Radolfzell is in southern Germany right next to Germany’s biggest lake (Lake Constance). Even though the city is small, there are many things to offer visitors: great views, shopping options, arts and culture and various outdoor activities. The town’s origins date back over a thousand years which began as an essential settlement but has grown due to its location close to the lake, a popular tourist destination.
The Carl Duisberg Centre is based near a picturesque park called the ‘Stadtgarten’ which has a fantastic view of the old part. This town is ideal for young learners or anybody who wants to learn German in a small town. Everything is within reach as the location is not significant in size. The language centre consists of 9 classrooms, a cafeteria, a language lab and a party room.
Young learners will feel at home in Radolfzell even if it is their first time abroad. Full care and service will be given to them by the staff for an enjoyable learning experience.


There are various attractions close to the training centre in Radolfzell. Lake Constance is nearby and also the borders of Switzerland and Austria. The Black Forest is also within reach. Many activities and excursions can be organised in the nearby natural environment.

For art lovers, the Hermann-Hesse-Museum located in Gaienhofen and the Otto-Dix-Museum in Hemmenhofen are available to check out. A well-known medieval town called Stein am Rhein is only 20 kilometres away from the school and the largest waterfall in Europe is only a few kilometres away in Schaffhausen.


For the young learners in the centre, the following activities will be available to choose from, also including full-day trips on weekends:

Football Camp
The football activities will take place at a local football club (FC 03 Radolfzell) with native German speakers experienced football coaches where the children will learn various football drills and techniques like ball control, dribbling, passing, dummying, and shooting goals.

Urban Dance Camp
Urban dance activities will be held in a hall near the training centre. Different dance styles will be practised, such as Jazz and hip hop.

Activity Camp
Various activities will be held in the surrounding locations depending on the type of activity and weather conditions. The counsellors will be experienced and native speakers. The most common activities include fun at Lake Constance, swimming, beach volleyball, circus workshop, canoeing, visits to the wildlife and leisure park, campfires and raft building.


Summer Camp Residence for the group 11-14 years old
The camps run at the youth education base in Ludwigshafen on Lake Constance. The lovely building with a big green proposes multiple activities and is very close to Lake Constance.
The boys and girls will be accommodated separately.
The centre has a football field and a volleyball court, a ping pong indoor table. A magnificent panorama of Lake Constance is most favourite.

Homestay or Residence for the group 15-17 years old
Teenagers will significantly benefit by staying with a host family as it will give them full immersion into German everyday life. If many students are staying with the same family, then it is taken into consideration that they do not speak the same native language.

The residence option is trendy for those who would like to stay with fellow students and be able to interact with each other. The residence is located just outside Radolfzell in a quiet area. A shared bathroom, crockery will be available as well as a kitchen. Access to a washing machine and dryer is also open.
