If your students are studying history then the vibrant cities of Berlin and Munich are ideal in any season. In the summer, many groups choose to visit the Rhine and the Black Forest.

As a general rule we recommend that you start planning your trip 12-18 months prior to your travel date. This gives you plenty of time to get sign off from senior leadership and to launch your trip in school to students and parents. Planning early will also mean you have a greater choice of accomodation and travel options.
If you start planning your trip later than this, don't worry, it is definitely possible to plan a trip in a shorter amount of time. We're here to support you and we have a selection of templates and useful guides to help guide you and save you time throughout the process.
