Become a host family


Better than a park bench ... become a host family!

We regularly need host families for young musicians attending masterclasses in Kronberg. The young students come to Kronberg from every corner of the world and are a guaranteed source of interesting conversation and inspiring exchanges. Could you provide a welcome bed for an international guest?

What exactly is expected of you as a guest family?

The students, who are all between 15 and 29 years of age, speak either German or English. Your guest should be given a separate room in which he or she may also be able to practise. Breakfast is a welcome extra but the host family is under no obligation to provide it. Otherwise the students cater for themselves and you do not need to provide meals. As a small “thank you” for your hospitality, you will be paid €10 a night towards expenses and have free admission to the public masterclasses.

Next event: mid-June 2019

The sixth Violin Masterclasses & Concerts in Kronberg are scheduled to take place from 16 to 23 June 2019. Would you like to make a young violinist happy by welcoming him or her into your home? Then don’t hesitate – become a host family!

For further information, please contact Christina von Tippelskirch at c.tippelskirch(at)kronbergacademy.de or on +49 6173 783373.

We look forward to your gesture of hospitality!
