Castle Bieberstein - the lietz boarding school

The Castle Bieberstein boarding school is a pure grammar school located 15 kilometres to the east of Fulda in Hesse. Today, the boarding school holds the senior years of a German grammar school (ages 15 and up). The e-international is a feature that is unique in Germany. Its purpose is to get familiar with new cultural, social and sports offerings and expand on the knowledge of languages.

Castle Bieberstein is the higher level secondary school of the Lietz boarding schools and was founded in 1904 by Hermann Lietz. At one time the summer residence of the Prince-Abbots of Fulda, today it is home to 125 girls and boys of the upper school (sixth form). They are cared for by 25 teachers, male and female, as well as 25 other staff. Since the Bieberstein students are all young adolescents, they live and work in a less rigidly regimented environment than at the middle level. Every room has Internet and Intranet connections. Handling modern communications facilities is a given for our youth. Just as important is working with the printed word. There is a comprehensive, well-equipped library for this purpose.
