Living There

  • The closest town, Braunau, is about 4 miles away and easily accessible by train. Here you can get everything you need—food, shoes, basic clothes, etc.  Other options are Simbach (across the border in Germany, 6 miles away), Salzburg (40 miles), Linz (45 miles), or Munich (80 miles).
  • Electric voltage: 230 V
  • Local transportation: the train station is a five-minute walk from campus and goes to Braunau, Simbach, Munich, and Linz (and everywhere else from there). 
  • We teach Mondays through Fridays, and sometimes include an introductory class on Sunday evenings. About 2-3 times a year we go on a weekend seminar with the students (as a service to the churches and for promotion). We also serve at the Bogenhofen Stand during events such as Youth Congresses around Easter time.
  • Vacation time is: fall vacation (1 week at the end of October), Christmas vacation (2 weeks in December/January), winter vacation (third week of February), Easter vacation (10 days around Easter), and a few public holidays in addition to that. Our school year starts on the second Monday in September and ends on the second Friday in July.
  • Extracurricular activities: Many towns in the area, such as Salzburg, Munich, and Vienna offer a variety of things to see and do. Munich's “Das Deutsche Museum," for example, is a must! There is also bird watching in the Unteres Innviertel nature reservation, hiking in the Alps, swimming and bouldering in the region, soccer or volleyball on campus, etc. Other famous places in Europe are also easily accessible—e.g. Neuschwanstein, Schloss Schoenbrunn, Venice, the Waldensian Valleys, the Wartburg.
