Traveling time: 1 or 2 weeks - 11.11 or 18.11.2018
Despite strong competition, Malaga is still a destination much in demand. Perhaps because of its history, which hardly any other vacation area can offer in such richness. Or maybe it’s the climatic vistas, which one can only describe as resplendent. And then there are the countless restaurants, clubs and bars that are just perfect for the warm nights…
The Spanish love to party and Malaga is no exception. As a guest at a spirited fiesta, you will truly experience the soul of the country. And if you want to relax after all the wild enjoyment, then don’t miss the wonderful beaches, which even entranced Picasso, a great son of the region.

On Sunday you'll land at Malaga airport. From there it's a quick journey to the city center and the hotel. If you wish, we'll pick you up at the airport.
After a balanced breakfast at the hotel, your language course will start at our language school. From now on, you'll learn Spanish in a lively way and expand any existing knowledge you may have. In the evening, we'll enjoy a champagne reception as well as a guided tour of the old town.
They tower high above Malaga and are a symbol of the city: the Alcazaba and the Castle of Gibralfaro. We'll accompany you up Mount Gibralfaro and tell you the history of the fortress. Don't forget your camera!
For those looking for peace and relaxation, Malaga's botanical garden is just the place. In this oasis of silence, all you'll hear are a few birds singing and the splashing of the waterfall. We'll guide you through the olive, orange and lemon trees and give you tips for your garden at home!
The garden was even a favorite retreat of the region's greatest son: Pablo Picasso. There is now a museum dedicated to him where we'll go to marvel at his work, which was way ahead of its time.
On Friday we'll end the week in a typically Spanish way! With tapas in one of the best bars in town: "Pimpi". How do we know it's one of the best? Our local colleagues test it out almost every week.
It is Saturday, finally you'll get to discover the symbol of Andalusia! The city of Granada itself is a must see, and not only popular among students. Then there's the Alhambra, which wins over even the most critical of tourists.
What happens when Spanish temperament and French art meet? The Centre Pompidou Malaga. Only opened recently, we love visiting again and again to discover the ever-changing exhibitions.
Another recently opened museum, and touriost magnet, is the Museo de Málaga. The fine arts, as well as archaeological finds, give an impression of Malaga from the 19th century. Come with us!
Not eaten for a while? Time for a cooking course. Together, we'll conjure up a typical Andalusian paella. Watch over the shoulders of the masters and learn the best tricks and subtleties. ¡Que aproveche!
Now it's time for some sport. Nothing is more fun in Malaga than a bike ride from the beach to the mountains. Join us to discover the small surprises we've arranged for you along the way.
As varied as the city, our activity program has something for everyone. Come with us to Malaga's Cathedral and the Roman Theater. There won't ever be another performance here, but the cheers of the audience are still somehow palpable.
Another highlight to round off your language trip: On the last evening we'll go to Gallo Ronco together. At one of the most famed addresses in the city, you can enjoy a flamenco show while enjoying the delicious food.
Time to pack your suitcase for your flight home. A final tip from us: the fewer souvenirs you take home, the sooner you'll come back to visit us in Andalusia.
