James' Guide to Berlin

James is one of our Itinerary Coordinators and has visited Berlin several times. Here are his top tips for history groups planning on visiting the German capital.
  • [Berlin](https://www.halsbury.com/education/nazis-holocaust/germany/the-nazis-holocaust-school-trip-berlin) is one of my favourite cities; it has so much to offer its visitors, particularly school groups, and so I was delighted to have the opportunity to visit the city again this December. Having previously visited in the summer, it was magical to see the city transformed into a winter wonderland for the Christmas season.
  • There are so many to choose from, but below are some of my highlights and top tips for [history](https://www.halsbury.com/education/history) groups visiting Berlin.

    As an alternative, for an overview of the history of Germany as a whole, I would recommend the Deutsches Historisches Museum.

    Another great option for groups studying the Cold War is, of course, Checkpoint Charlie.

    House of the Wannsee ConferenceA visit to the Wannsee villa will most certainly be a very thought-provoking and moving experience for your students as it was here, in 1942, that the infamous Wannsee Conference took place. It was at this conference that the 'Final Solution to the Jewish Question' was planned, leading to the attempted extermination of the Jewish population of occupied Europe). Guided tours are provided free of charge for school groups and include the room in which the conference took place.

    A fantastic alternative for groups studying WWII, the Nazis and the Holocaust is the Jewish Museum.

    I hope that this has provided you with some inspiration for your next school history trip to Berlin.
