School German Language Study Trip to Cologne

A German language study school trip to Cologne offers your students the opportunity to improve their language skills in this magnificent city on the Rhine!

Cologne is over 2,000 years old and the largest city on the spectacular Rhine. It is, perhaps, most famous for its magnificent medieval cathedral but there's loads of other exciting things to see and do here, whether it's visits to the chocolate museum or a boat cruise along the river. 

Our partner language school in Cologne will provide your students with German lessons in closed groups, so that lessons can be tailored to suit your curriculum and specific requirements. All the teachers are fully-qualified native German speakers.

1927 Petersfield Squadron ATC, October 2018

You’re obviously too good. I can’t find fault with anything. All your staff went out of their way to help and were always polite. The coach and driver were faultless.
