Burg Breuberg language camp: Learn English with fantasy flair
Fantasy and medieval fans beware: This language camp is perfect for anyone who has always wanted to feel like a knight or a heroine from a fantasy novel or make their own movie. At Breuberg Castle we delve deep into the Middle Ages, experience an exciting movie and fantasy leisure program and improve our English skills at the same time.
Improving English skills at Burg Breuberg language camp with Berlitz
Our holiday camp in Burg Breuberg combines English lessons in the mornings with a varied leisure program in the afternoons. During lessons, the focus is on creativity: for example, kids will write content for our camp magazine, draw and describe their own pictures, or act out fairy tales in English. That way, we teach kids to enjoy the foreign language through play.
Learning English during the school break? That’s not a problem with our Berlitz English camps! Unlike school lessons, the aim here is not to teach as much material and grammar as possible. We use the Berlitz method of "learning by speaking", i.e. as much active speaking as possible. We offer kids:
- Lessons five mornings a week (4 x 45 minutes each)
- Kids are encouraged to actively use English in small groups.
On the day of arrival, we’ll assign kids to learning groups according to their age and previous knowledge.
Castle, movies, fantasy, and language: a vacation program for active kids
Enjoying unforgettable experiences, trying exciting activities, and learning a foreign language along the way: at our holiday camp at Burg Breuberg, kids get to use newly learned words and phrases in a fun way right from the start.
Tours through the castle or in the forest, and fun quiz evenings: for the most part, kids will speak to each other in the foreign language. German is only used for important safety instructions or in case of emergency.
Fantasy and fun in the afternoon
Our holiday camp program is varied and fun. What do kids do? It depends on the season and the weather. Here are a few examples of what active kids can experience at camp:
- Making a fantasy movie
- Getting a guided tour through Burg Breuberg castle,
- Building huts, dams or cairns in the forest,
- Going on exciting excursions in the surrounding area, or
- Getting creative, for example, drawing comics or manga strips, making friendship bracelets, and much more.
Cozy evenings with new friends
After an exciting day in the great outdoors or (if necessary) indoors, we make ourselves comfortable in the evening at Burg Breuberg language camp: depending on the weather and season, round the campfire or inside. But, of course, there’s still lots of exciting activities to enjoy, such as:
- Baking campfire bread and toasting marshmallows,
- A fun "Battle of the Bands" music competition,
- Reading stories in the foreign language, or
- Simply playing together.
Good to know: The program is created and adapted individually and on site for each date and can therefore vary.

Travel back in time to the Middle Ages: Burg Breuberg youth hostel
Mighty walls, stately halls and a great view of the landscape: the youth hostel in Breuberg Castle offers a breathtaking backdrop for our language camp. On a castle tour, we walk in the footsteps of knights and damsels.
We have plenty of space to play and romp on the spacious grounds with a soccer field and table tennis tables. In the evening, we make ourselves comfortable at the romantic campfire or in the "Burgschänke”. Another highlight are the multi-bed rooms with historical flair, where girls and boys sleep separately.
Relaxation and lots of fresh air: Breuberg in the Odenwald
A true idyll: Breuberg Castle is enthroned on a wooded hill and offers a unique view of the surrounding Odenwald. The beautiful area can be explored on numerous hiking trails around the castle. The small town of Breuberg in southern Hesse has a rural character and promises pure relaxation. The historic district of Neustadt with its charming historic half-timbered houses is particularly worth seeing.

"Let’s speak English" – that’s the motto we follow at the Breuberg Berlitz Camp. Our experienced counselors are at the kids’ side all day long. Both during lessons that take place in small groups in the mornings and during the fun and action in the afternoons and evenings. Our focus: to ensure all kids speak English all day long.
The best proof of the success of our Berlitz concept: many counselors were camp participants themselves in the past and support us year after year!
Providing the best all-round support at our Berlitz language camps is important to us. That also includes a balanced diet. Kids will receive three meals a day and these include drinks like juice, tea, or water. Please pack a reusable water bottle, so that your child can fill it up in between meals.
We try our best to offer alternatives for kids with special requests, such as vegetarians or those with allergies. Please contact our team before booking so that we can discuss this on a one-on-one basis.
How we start: Camp starts on the first day at the time mentioned in the travel information (sent to all participants before camp start). Together with their parents, kids will be able to get to know our team and other participants and take part in a parents' welcome session. All kids will receive our welcome package, which consists of a gym bag, lunch box, T-shirt, and much more. We use a written and oral placement to place kids in the right learning group. With younger kids, we often just talk briefly about their hobbies and everyday life.
Important departure information: Parents can pick up their kids on the day of departure. You will find out exactly when in the camp travel documents. Unfortunately, it is not possible to pick kids up at a later time, as our team will also be leaving. We will send all camp documents, including a certificate of participation, to the participants afterwards.
Then take a look at our kids camp FAQ page where we have gathered further information.
We will also send you further details regarding the pack list, arrival and departure etc. by e-mail after your booking.
