About us

The Hermann-Hesse-Kolleg is a private, internationally recognized school for German as a foreign language and also a certified examination center. With the founding of the college in 1993, the perfect place to learn German as a foreign language was created in Horb.

Following in the footsteps of Hermann Hesse, who spent his life striving for perfect linguistic expression, young people from all sorts of countries around the world come to Horb and get to know not only our language, but also the region and the culture. For over 20 years, the college has managed to present language in as many dimensions as possible.

Intellectual findings are papers, confidence has always only the one who talks about experienced.
