School Trips to Berlin

School trips to Berlin remain a hugely popular option for teachers of many subjects, including German, history, art and design and technology.

Berlin is one of our favourite school trip destinations because you can go there every year and still find something new to see and do each time, which makes it a great choice for a regular, annual school trip. And because we know the city so well ourselves, we can help you to design an itinerary to suit your specific requirements and learning objectives.

Why visit Berlin?

A city full of history

The vibrant capital of Germany always proves to be a massive hit with students. And it’s a city that wears its recent history on its sleeve. It’s particularly brilliant for bringing to life some of the darker events of the 20 th century, with many visits and activities suitable for history school trips.

In fact, we’d argue that there’s nowhere better to learn about the Nazis and the Holocaust and the Cold War than Berlin, thanks to the many fantastic museums and historical sites that bring 20th-century history to life for your 21st-centurystudents.

And, even if you’re not in Berlin on a history school trip, you may want to take some time to visit one of the many excellent museums, such as the Checkpoint Charlie Museum, the Jewish Museum and the Story of Berlin.

Get your students talking!

But it’s not just about history school trips – as the capital, Berlin is a great choice for a school trip to discover the German culture through practising the language.

And we can arrange for your students to have German lessons at a specialist language school in the city, which is a great option for groups preparing for their GCSE or A-level exams.

Of course, you’ll want to spend some of your time in Berlin sightseeing and visits to the Brandenburg Gate, the Bundestag and the TV Tower are not to be missed.

And while you’re exploring the city, your students will have plenty of opportunities to discover the culture through their German skills.

You may even like to consider visiting during December when you include a visit to the Christmas markets too!

A creative city

Berlin is a forward-thinking city and its youthful, creative atmosphere always goes down well with students.

The city has long been at the forefront of art, fashion and design, and is part of UNESCO’s Creative Cities Network.

This makes it a great destination for art and design and technology groups too!
