Holidays and Activities for Teenagers

Entertainment options for teenagers during the school holiday period...

It is important to note that the dates vary from region to region and from year to year.

State Schools do not provide many activities for teenagers in Germany but there are private clubs for sports including golf, football, tennis and handball. Some summer camps with language schools involve a one or two week camping and language learning break; there are also activity holidays abroad and exchange programs with foreign teenagers from other schools.

Some private schools do arrange specific holidays, such as ski trips or European culture trips. These are planned well in advance, require parental acceptance, insurance cover and the appropriate fees.

Schools normally have details of such activities and local sport and culture clubs pinned on notice boards. Otherwise, check the local city website or yellow pages for more details.
