Interview-Special: “Mein München” | Frankfurt Book Fair | STM Star Awards | Students' Corner
Hello Friend Newsletter in EnglishNewsletter auf Deutsch

Our series “My City” concludes with Franziska Geyer, a German teacher at the did deutsch-in­sti­tut Munich. As a real ′Münchner-Kindl’ (child of Munich), she is enthusiastic to show you her home­town: “What I like best is the mixture of big city flair and green oasis, quiet and sunny mea­dows in com­bi­na­tion with comfy cafes next to loud clubs, and every­thing that a big city has to offer.” You can find the entire interview here. Following are some further Insider Tips from Franziska:

Tip for a club: Netzer Insider Tip 1: Club & Public Square
“For those who like to go to small clubs where you won’t run into the Munich ′in crowd’, I recommend the Netzer in the Glocken­bach­vier­tel (neigh­bor­hood). Here you can ′rock out’ to new and old Indie music at fair prices. And for those who want to go fur­ther, right around the cor­ner is the Gärt­ner­platz. When the weather is nice, you can also sun your­self on the steps of the Gärtnerplatz theater with friends.”

Tip: Oktoberfest in August Insider Tip 2: Die Wies’n (Oktoberfest)
“Unfortunately, this tip is not applicable all year round, but it is certainly an eye-catcher – even before Ok­to­ber­fest begins, in fact, already in August! Even as a child, I was fas­cinated to watch how the festival tents were set up and the gon­do­las were hung on the giant ferris wheel. In some half-finished beer gardens you can get something to eat and can sit there without encountering a single tourist!”

Tip for a gourmet open market: Viktualienmarkt Insider Tip 3: Viktualienmarkt
“Even if this isn’t really a true insider tip, you definitely don’t want to miss the Viktualienmarkt (gourmet open mar­ket) under any circumstances. In fact, you should take plen­ty of time to stroll through at your leisure. There are dif­fer­ent smells on every corner and you can find typical lo­cal Ba­var­i­an specialties here. You may also run into a few Munich ′originals’ too!”

Tip: beer garden Insider Tip 4: Beer garden
“If you want to tune out and look for an alternative to the well-known beer gardens, you should go to the Taxis­garten in ′Gern’. The prices are fair, the food is fresh and it is ty­pi­cal Ba­var­i­an. The beer benches even have com­for­table back­rests and next to no tourists find their way here. In ad­di­tion, I recommend a walk to the Rotkreuzplatz (Red Cross Place) passing by wonderfully beautiful, old houses and gardens.”

Frankfurt Book Fair STM Star Awards Students' Corner
Frankfurt Book
Fair 2012

The international book trade world is meet­ing again this year in Frank­furt from the 10th to the 14th of Oc­to­ber. The Frank­furt Book Fair has an over 500-year long tra­di­tion. There has been a book fair in Frank­furt am Main since the early mo­dern pe­ri­od, after Jo­han­nes Gu­ten­berg rev­o­lu­tion­ized book prin­ting in Mainz, on­ly a few ki­lo­me­ters away. So, if you are at the did deutsch-ins­ti­tut Frank­furt in Oc­to­ber, by all means, stop by! Dur­ing the book fair, the Peace Prize of the Ger­man Book Trade and the Ger­man Youth Li­ter­a­ture Prize will be an­nounced, among others. This year the coun­try of honor is New Zea­land.
For the fifth time
best German school!

At the elegant Award Gala in Lon­don, the time had come: did deutsch-ins­ti­tut was awar­ded the Stu­dy Tra­vel Ma­ga­zine Star Award, the most co­vet­ed honor in the lang­uage tra­vel in­dus­try, for the fifth time: 2006, 2007, 2009, 2011 and now again in 2012. With this, did deutsch-ins­ti­tut not only proved its con­tin­uous qual­i­ty in coun­sel­ing, ser­vice and, of course, Ger­man cour­ses, but also re­ceived the STM Super Star Award as the first and, up until now, the only Ger­man lan­gua­ge school and gained entry into the STM Super Star Hall of Fame. For this ter­rif­ic success we thank all of our em­ploy­ees, part­ners and friends for their support!
Students' Corner
Why Berlin?

Elisabetta from Italy: “Berlin is a city where you can learn a lot about Ger­man his­tory, lang­uage and people. Rea­son­ab­ly priced or­gan­ic su­per mar­kets, cool book­stores and an­tique shops can be found through­out the city – I find in­ter­es­ting books there. I would like to read Ge­rman texts and work with the Ger­man lang­uage. I had been here once al­ready and def­i­nite­ly wan­ted to come back. There is so much room here and I can afford a large apart­ment (be­fore, I lived in Paris, where it is simply much too ex­pen­sive). I ex­per­i­ence Ber­lin as a free, tol­er­ant and peace­ful city. There is enough room for every­one and I feel se­cure here.” Read more
