Welcome to the KERN Training Language School in Essen

Essen is situated between the cities Bochum, Duisburg, Duesseldorf and Wuppertal. In the city, culture is of great importance as there are numerous theatres and museums to discover. The Lichtburg, in Essen, is the biggest cinema hall as well as the oldest cinema in Germany that is still in operation. All this contributed to the fact that the city was chosen as the Culture Capital of the Year 2010.

The KERN branch is located about 200 metres from Essen Hauptbahnhof (main railway station). The branch is easily accessible by bus and train. Get off at Essen Hauptbahnhof and take the north exit out of the station to the city centre. You will first arrive at Willy-Brandt-Platz. You can see the Anson's building from here. Both our office and our classrooms are located inside. Although the address reads "Kettwiger Straße 3", the entrance is located on Kapuzinergasse.
