Volkshochschule Volkshochschule - Education and interaction under one roof

Since the establishment of Volkshochschulen (adult-learning centres), employees have been committed to upholding values such as respect, tolerance, openness, diversity, equal opportunity, and fairness. All these values are reflected in the course content and lectures, as well as in the actions of the teachers.

The lectures are intended to be open to everyone (aged 14 and over), regardless of their income. It’s a place where people from all generations and social classes, with a wide range of educational qualifications and cultural backgrounds, can interact. The fields of learning consist of topics such as society, politics, the environment, art, culture, design, health education, languages, careers, basic training, and catching up on school qualifications.
