Germany Cultural Exchange

Country Information

Germany is a European country celebrated for its rich cultural heritage and historical significance. It boasts iconic landmarks such as the Brandenburg Gate and Neuschwanstein Castle. Renowned for its diverse cuisine and world-famous beers, Germany is a gastronomic delight. The German language and contributions to music, philosophy, and science have profoundly influenced global culture. It continues to be a favoured tourist destination, drawing millions of visitors each year.


The majority of Germans are Christian, with a significant proportion identifying as either Protestant or Catholic. While religion plays a part in German culture, many Germans are not highly religious, and regular church attendance is less common in modern society. When they do attend church services, it’s typically on Sunday mornings.

Exchange students will attend a public school and are placed in grade 9, 10 or 11. Every school decides which grade the exchange student will attend. Students usually have to take compulsory classes such as Maths, German, English, Social Science, Natural Science and Physical Education. In addition, students can choose, among other subjects, music, arts, computer science etc. depending on what the school offers.
