JobTravel

Lindau is beautifully located on Lake Constance, at the German, Swiss and Austrian border. Well-known ski resorts like St. Anton and Lech are located at approximately 100 kilometres. If you would like to stay in Lindau (and its surroundings) for a longer time, then these work programs are what you are looking for!

After completing the course you need to have reached at least level B1. The minimum age for these programs is 18. The maximum age is 30 years.


If you want to apply for one of these programs, please send us your CV in German and book the language course and JobTravel program online.

The price mentioned for JobTravel on the price list is a mediation fee (ie does not include language course and accommodation).
The work experience program is in most cases unpaid, for a seasonal job you'll get paid.

Work experience / Internship
During the work experience program, you work between 8 and 15 weeks in a company in Lindau or immediate vicinity. This program not only aims to gain work experience, but it also helps to practice your knowledge of the German language and to further improve it.

In the summer period and during the high season period you will be working in Lindau or its immediate vicinity. For example in restaurants, hotels, shops etc. In the winter season you will work in ski resorts such as Lech or St. Anton (approximately 100 kilometres from Lindau).

You will work minimum 30 and maximum 50 hours per week and you will get € 600 - € 1,300 net per month depending on the company you work for. In some cases  is your accommodation and board included. The school will always try to find a job that matches your needs as best as possible. If placement in the company or the location of your choice is not possible, then alternatives will be discussed with you. You thereforeneed to be a little flexible.

Lindau is a popular place for sightseeing tours and holidays, and makes a fantasic location to learn German. Many sporting activities can be done on the lake and in the surrounding countryside. These include water sports such as sailing and water skiing, cycling around the lake, Nordic walking, golf and rambling.
