Stift Neuzelle - private boarding school

Stift Neuzelle is a private boarding school with very special facilities: it uses the premises of a former monastery that was founded in 1268. The premises are very beautiful and you can really feel history here. The school is in the center of a small village, that is named Neuzelle, too. Berlin is about 130 km away, the closest city nearby is Eisenhüttenstadt (8 km).

The school is small and international students are taken care of very well. Neuzelle demands German on level B1 - if your German is not on that level yet, you can do a foundation course first (which takes place in Berlin) and then switch to this school.
