School Trips to Amiens

School trips to Amiens offer students the opportunity to explore one of France’s most charming cities!

Amiens is most popular as a destination for French-language trips to the Christmas markets, but whatever your reason for visiting, we’ll tailor-make your school trip to Amiens to ensure that it suits your curriculum and specific learning objectives.

Why visit Amiens?

Experience a French Christmas

Most of our groups choose a school trip to Amiens to travel during December so that they can visit the famous Christmas market! This is a fantastic option for a French school trip as it offers students many exciting opportunities to practise speaking French with local stallholders.

The city is home to the largest Christmas market in northern France, which is why most school groups choose to visit the city. The market stretches across 2km of the city centre and features 130 chalets, an ice rink, a big wheel and a mountain village complete with a toboggan run!

On your Christmas market school trip to Amiens, you’ll be able to pick some incredible handmade gifts from Picardie and around the world, and you’ll have lots of fun trying all the delicious food on offer! Your students will have plenty of opportunities to practise their French with the local stallholders, to find out more about their products and to purchase gifts and treats.

And once you’ve had your fill of waffles and chocolate pancakes, make sure you head over to the city’s magnificent cathedral, which hosts a spectacular light show every evening at 7pm in December. And don’t miss out on a boat trip through the city’s incredible floating gardens, Les Hortillonages.

Fascinating history and culture

Amiens offers plenty of history and culture to explore. The city is perhaps most famous for its iconic 13th-century Gothic cathedral, which is the largest of its kind in France and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

It was also the scene for the opening battle of the Hundred Days Offensive, which eventually led to an armistice with Germany and the end of WW1. And it was once home to French author Jules Verne, who lived in the city from 1871 until his death in 1905.

Fantastic French cuisine

And, if any of your group has an interest in French cuisine, they’ll be pleased to discover that the city boasts a number of local delicacies, including macarons d’Amiens and tuiles amienoises.

If you do visit Amiens’ Christmas market, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to sample these delicious treats!
