An art school trip to Berlin offers the opportunity for your students to explore a city that is at the cutting edge of art!

Germany’s vibrant capital is like a magnet for artists, where a turbulent history has paved the way for freedom of expression and the encouragement of creativity.

Right in the heart of the city you’ll find Museum Island, a UNESCO World Heritage Site dedicated to art and antiquities. And in Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg, you’ll find some of the most iconic examples of street art in the world, at the East Side Gallery. And there are at least another 150 museums to explore here, so you’ll certainly not leave Berlin disappointed!

You could also consider teaming up with your school's German, history or design and technology department to make this trip cross-curricular.

Need help?

I love being able to provide school trips that give students the opportunity to experience different cultures and languages. When I was a student, I visited a town near Lyon for a French exchange trip. I found it really interesting living with a French family, I really enjoyed the trip and my language skills improved, as I quickly became more confident at speaking the language – Caroline Hill Tour Consultant

Don't take our word for it …

Super organisation and suggestions for a 4 day KS4 and 5 trip to Rome. We took 31 students to Rome and everything went according to the itinerary. What really stood out was the ability to contact our coordinator at anytime to help with questions and logistics. Highly recommended! — Kingsdale Foundation School , November 2023
