Humboldt Institut in Düsseldorf​

Welcome to Humboldt Institut in Düsseldorf​

In Düsseldorf the Humboldt-Institut offers German summer courses for teenagers. All courses are offered as a full-package including accommodation, full board, daily activities and excursions.

Why we love it

Good to know


With a population of some 600,000 inhabitants, Düsseldorf is seen as one of Germany’s most popular major cities and was named the second best city in Germany for quality of life. Not only are its inhabitants very fond of their city, but so are tourists who visit it from all over the world.

Enjoy a stroll along the banks of the Rhine, the famous Rheinuferpromenade (Rhine River boardwalk) which links the picturesque historic city center with the contemporary Media Harbor. The Kö, the bustling shopping street, is a wonderful place to take in the sights. With its residents’ famous zest for life, Düsseldorf has an almost Mediterranean flair, especially in the summer.

The school

Our students are guests in the Düsseldorf City Hostel, a high-quality facility located on the banks of the Rhine River. Our classes take place in the attractive and bright seminar rooms of the hostel, which are all equipped with up-to-date technology. As our students are housed in the same building, they don’t need to leave the premises to get to class, but can conveniently walk there from their rooms.


The hostel is only a few years old and offers high-quality furnishings. Our students stay exclusively in comfortable, modern twin rooms, which all have en-suite bathrooms. With this 360° panoramic image you get a first impression of the rooms in Düsseldorf.

How to get to there

Address: DJH Youth Hostel, Düsseldorfer Str. 1, 40545 Düsseldorf, Germany
Closest Airport: Düsseldorf (DUS)
Airport Pickup: Yes, € 40 fee per person and route. Our staff members pick up the participants at the airport and bring them to the course center by car, minibus and occasionally coaches. Similarly, on the departure day they will take the course participants from the school back to the airport. The transfer service is usually shared with other students (i.e. group transportation). Waiting time is usually not longer than one hour.

Things to know

Cancellation Policy

If there is an entry ban, the course can be canceled free of charge. The paid course fee can be left as credit for a later course at the Humboldt-Institut or it can be reimbursed.

Covid Measures

There is a separate hygiene concept for each course location, which is sent to the participants around 10 days before the start of the course so that it is adapted to the latest legal requirements. Yes, all students older than 12 years and 3 months are only allowed to take the course if they have been vaccinated with one of the EU-approved vaccines (AstraZeneca, BioNTech-Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, Moderna, Novavax). There are currently exceptions for students with long-term courses (longer than 3 months or with subsequent school attendance), but also in these cases, we strongly recommend a vaccination before arrival or at the start of the course.

Health & Safety

Children and teenagers will be supervised 24 hours per day and there is always a contact person near them. In case you need travel health insurance during your stay at our institute, you can sign up for it through the Humboldt-Institut along with your enrollment. The fee is 2 euros per day of your stay. The travel health insurance covers sickness and accidents (and any necessary medical treatment) that occur during your stay in the program. Any treatment related to sickness or accidents that occurred before the start of the course will not be covered by the travel insurance. Any kind of self-inflicted health issues will not be covered either. The travel health insurance does not include a liability insurance.

Staff & Student Ratio

The ratio of students to supervisors is 15:1. A reliable care for our underage students in the children and teenager courses is guaranteed 24 hours a day. Our supervisors are prepared for their assignment at the institute in detailed, personal interviews or in workshops. At the beginning of their activity at the course location, they receive a comprehensive introduction to the processes, responsibilities and educational requirements in the leisure activities and care. Each assignment is evaluated and on-site reflection sessions are held to deepen and consolidate the skills required for this pedagogical activity and to ensure and further improve the quality of care over the long term.
