CHS Students in Germany this Summer
Fifteen Canby High School students traveled to Germany this Summer on a home-stay exchange. They attended a German college-prepatory school, lived with real German families, and discovered what life in Europe is is really like.
Before they moved in with their host families, the CHS students traveled to Bavaria where they visited Munich, the Hofbräuhaus, the 1972 Olympic stadium, many churches, and a royal crypt as well as the Dachau concentration camp. Additionally, they traveled to the Alps and toured Neuschwanstein Castle, sang the American national anthem for an audience of Germans, and hiked (uphill) a lot more than they expected. Not to be outdone by the Alps, their next stop was Lake Constance, Germany’s largest lake. It offered the students the chance to see the oldest continuously lived in castle in Germany as well as some of the most fascinating stone- and bronze-age structures ever discovered by archeologists north of the Alps.
But without a doubt, the best part of almost a month in Germany was their time with their host brothers and sisters. Many kids are already planning their return trips!
