How about staying in a castle for once?

Ortenberg lies between the Rhein and the Black Forest nestled among vineyards. Easy to spot even from a distance and easy to recognize by its four turrets, Ortenberg Castle overlooks the landscape from its vantage point on the hill. While parts of the fortress date all the way back to the Middle Ages, the present-day castle was built in the neo-Gothic style in the first half of the 19th century. Dining in the historical dining hall or exploring the fortress - the atmosphere of this youth hostel is the perfect setting for our varied and interesting French camp. Venez!



  • Language training on 4 days er week, daily 4 x 45 minutes lessons in small groups of max. 12 students
  • Supervised afternoon program and evening activities in the target language (safety instructions and explanations in German where needed)
  • What better place for our students to try out their newly-learned French skills than on a day trip across the border to neighboring Alsace? We will visit Strasbourg with its impressive cathedral and the delightful „Petite France“ district with its beautiful timbered houses, collect the most relevant information about the city on a „city hunt“ and relax on a boat tour on one of the many canals. During lunch we can sample some of the delicious food in a typical Alsatian restaurant.

  • A talent show in historical surroundings
  • Crossboccia, boule

What our customers say

Tessa attended English camp in Wenzigerode last week, and even though she was by far the youngest and most clueless (in regards to English), she had a lot of fun. The horses and other animals were a big hit, of course, but she was also able to pick up a few words of English and is already thinking about going to another camp this summer. I thought the camp was very well-organized (beforehand and during). Sam Watt was a dependable and good director.
