3 weeks in Bamberg

Hi there, I am planning to follow a German course in Bamberg in early spring of next year. What can one do for 3 weeks? Is the school "Treffpunkt" a good institution? Thanks in advance for all your reply.

Bamberg is one of the most beautiful towns and their local beer is just great.

Würzburg and Nuremberg are ideal locations for day trips. And the spas area around Bad Brückenau would be ideal for a weekend trip.

Erfurt, Stuttgart and Frankfurt are also within a 3 hours radius.

I too am considering a language course either at Treffpunkt in Bamberg or at the Goethe Institute in Schwaebisch Hall. I was at the Goethe Institute in Schwaebisch Hall in October 2006 and it was very good. But this year I am thinking of trying a new venue. In comparison to the Goethe Institute I attended, the classes at Treffpunkt appear, on the average, to be smaller: around 5-6 students, whereas at the Goethe Institute classes averaged 8-9. Please email me backchannel if you would like to discuss Treffpunkt in more detail. I will be interested to see any other replies to your Treffpunkt question.
