For those of you who would like to get to know a "real" German family, we offer a host family programme. Your German family will invite you to their home or perhaps go on an outing with you in the area. It is initially a one-off meeting but if you hit it off well, there's nothing to stop you getting together on a regular basis.

By the way, it is tradition in Germany to bring a small present to thank your host for their hospitality. The first time you meet your family you should do this - perhaps something from your native country, flowers or sweets.
