The best is saved for last. Chilling out with the After-Class Activities.
IKI makes sure that the entertainment is ongoing for the whole duration of the summer campus programme. After the 3-hour lesson, there is typically an exciting programme awaiting. Here is your chance to get to know both the several highlights of the city and also the participants from the other courses. Joint walks, daytrips, cinema and museum visits, along with dances, communal cooking, and of course our IKI parties offer ample opportunity.

Vienna has a lot to offer in summer. You can take a stroll at Schoenbrunn, go for a swim at the Danube Island, go cycling, jogging, or skating. The several traditional coffee houses are perfect for meeting up with friends, or for simply doing homework or reading the newspaper.
