Communities – in good company

Living in Bavaria means exploring, getting to know and experiencing the state's culture. It is much richer and more colourful than any of the clichés, and includes the communities which we introduce here. In Bavaria, there is no need for anyone to deny their cultural roots. Living in Bavaria is living in variety. Whatever information you need – be it the nearest international school, language courses or questions on your neighbourhood – in Bavaria's international communities you will quickly find answers to your questions and friendship with like-minded people. We are also happy to invite you to suggest more or different international communities – we are always open for something new.
