Leisure time tips for Munich

Sports for students: Zentraler Hochschulsport (ZHS)

The ZHS (Central University Sports) gives students many opportunities to exercise, take part in courses or try out all kinds of different sports.

For only € 7.50, students can purchase a basic subscription (per semester!) that allows them to participate in many courses: this great offer covers ball sports such as golf or badminton, climbing (most often with an extra-application via PC), fitness, water sports, gymnastics and athletics, but also dancing, martial arts and trend sports.

Hint: If you are interested in swimming, for example, you can purchase an S Subscription (€ 15.00) and swim in the Olympic Hall at training times without paying an entrance fee!

More information on application and subscription purchases can be found on the homepage of the ZHS (in German) at:
