The BBS School of Languages is located in the heart of Baden-Baden – one of the most beautiful towns in Germany. Europe’s former summer capital has proved to be the perfect place for studying languages. Opposite the BBS, you will find international flair at the Festival Hall (Festspielhaus), which seats 2,500 and is the largest in Germany. The picturesque pedestrian zone is just 500 metres from the school. A stroll through the shopping street will take you to the famous Caracalla and Roman-Irish spas where you can swim and relax in the thermal waters. Baden-Baden is also famous for its Casino which, together with the Theatre and Frieder Burda Museum, is well worth a visit. They are all to be found in the equally famous Lichtentaler Allee, an extensive park which the Oos gently flows through. It is one of numerous green areas in this delightful town at the foot of the Black Forest.
For those interested in languages, Baden-Baden is the ideal starting point for travelling abroad. The French border is just 15 km and the historic Strassbourg 60 km away.
