You will share the bathroom and the kitchen with the other members of the family and you will be provided with towels and bed-linen.

With regard to lodging with host-families, it is only possible to book accommodation with breakfast or half-board (breakfast and dinner). If you would like to book bed and breakfast lodging, you may use the kitchen to prepare your meals. 
 
Please be aware of the fact that Cologne is a big city and that our host-families do not live in the city center. The distance from the families to the schools is approximately 20-40 minutes by public transport (metro or bus). All the families live near a bus stop so you can easily get to the school which is located in the historical center of Cologne.
