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.
