School Trips to Germany

School trips to Germany can cover any number of subjects, from history to maths, politics and science, among many others.

In fact, the diversity of learning opportunities here makes Germany the perfect choice for cross-curricular school trips, giving more students the opportunity to enjoy the experience of travelling abroad with their school.

Why visit Germany?

The complex history

Germany’s long and complicated history is a huge draw for school groups. A history school trip to Germany can explore everything from the German monarchy to the Weimar Republic, the Nazis and the Holocaust, or even the Cold War.

Many groups on a history school trip to Germany choose to base themselves in the capital, Berlin. If you do the same, you’ll find an almost unending choice of educational visits – which is fantastic news if you want to make this into an annual tour!

The rich culture

A school trip to Germany is an exciting opportunity for your students to explore the rich culture. Whether you want to explore the traditions of the Black Forest, explore ‘fairy tale’ Germany in the Rhineland or experience a traditional Christmas at one of Germany’s famous Christmas markets in Aachen, Cologne or Düsseldorf, your students will return home with deeper cultural understanding and a love for all things German.

And if you’re visiting on a German language school trip, your students will love the many opportunities to use their language skills to explore the culture, leaving them with a greater enthusiasm for the subject, as well as giving them more confidence in using German.

The creativity

Germany has a long history of art, making it a fantastic choice for an art school trip. And it’s ideal for a design and technology school trip too, with German engineering considered among the best in the world!

The opportunity to bring STEM to life

If you want to bring science or maths to life for your students and show them the real-world applications of your subject, then a school trip to Germany is hard to beat. Germany’s economic capital, Frankfurt, is a fascinating option for maths school trips, while Cologne’s variety of science attractions is the ideal choice to inspire your young scientists.
