If you don't have any cancellation of any class your normal school day at Felix-Klein-Gymnasium starts at 7:50 and ends either at 13:05 or if you have a longer day at 15:20 or even 16:10 . Therefore there is a lot of time to get hungry or thirsty and have the necessity to eat or drink something. If you don't want to bring or forget to bring something to eat or drink you can also get both in school. There are four basic places from where the students at our school get their food and beverages: the kiosk (for different candies, a variety of sandwiches and a few drinks such as water and apple juice), the canteen / refectory (for a proper meal), the water dispenser and the bakery (for some sandwiches, coffees ...) about 100 meters away from the school. Here is some basic information displayed for all four places.
If you don't want to get food in the two breaks of 20 minutes or in the bigger one of 45 minutes (lunch break from 13:05 to 13:50) at school, you can also get something in the city in consideration of the fact that you have to be back on time for the next class.
The kiosk is open (from Monday to Friday) from 7:00 to 13:30 .
(A variety of sandwiches, candy and beverages)
The canteen / refectory is open (from Monday to Friday) from 12:00 to 13:30 .
One meal costs 3,80 euros
You can decide between a non-vegetarian or a vegetarian meal → one meal consists of a main dish, additional side-dish, a dessert (either a yoghurt or a fruit such as a banana) and free water or orange juice.
You have to buy a ticket at the schools secretary for the food → there, you can get either a daily ticket for one meal or a ticket for a longer time-period (one week for 5 meals, one month for 20 meals ...).
You can take a look at the weekly menu on this homepage (→ go to Service/ Formulare → go to "Mensa")
The food of the FKG cafeteria / refectory is cooked fresh every day in another school called "Georg-Christoph-Lichtenberg-Gesamtschule Göttingen (IGS)", then sent to our school and finally set up.
The bakery next door is open from Monday to Saturday from 7:30 to 18:00,
and on Sundays from 13:00 to 18:00.
The school has placed a water dispenser with free water at school members' disposal, but only for every person who buys an "FKG water bottle" for 15 euros, as the water dispenser only works with the chip installed in the bottom of every water bottle. The 15 euros contribute to paying for the expensive equipment necessary to provide really hygienic water. Purchase and installation of the water fountain have only been possible with the help of Förderkreis des Felix-Klein-Gymnasiums.
