All students also have the option to bring their own lunch and drink from home and eat in the school building or in the Aula during their assigned break time.

Hot Lunch at the Aula
A healthy hot lunch is served daily in the Large Aula. Students are able to choose from three different menus every day. They don’t have to choose or order in advance:

A: regional cooking
B: international food
C: always vegetarian, at times vegan

In addition to the main course (A, B or C), they get to choose one of the two extras:

1: Fit Buffet (fresh fruit and vegetables)
2: Fun Buffet (fresh salads and desserts)

Unlimited water from water dispensers and at times additional drinks is available to all students.

Hot lunch will have to be paid for through a non-cash payment system (see below) in order to assure all students are served as quickly as possible. For occasional lunch guests, there will be the option to buy a one-meal-voucher from the cafeteria window and proceed to the hot lunch window afterwards.

Additional Offers
There is the Aula Cafeteria with drinks, snacks etc. While non-cash payment is recommended here as well in order to avoid long lines, cash payment is also possible.

There is the High School Bistro with an extended selection of warm and cold snacks and small meals, salads etc. as well as hot and cold drinks. While non-cash payment is recommended here as well in order to avoid long lines, cash payment will also possible.
