German engineering is world-renowned making Berlin a fantastic choice for your design and technology school trip!

There is so much to see and do in Berlin that we’ll be able to tailor your itinerary to meet your specific requirements. The Deutsches Technikmuseum presents a broad spectrum of old and new technology, and demonstrates the various historical connections to culture and everyday life.

Another popular visit is KPM Welt, a modernised porcelain manufacturer, which offers students the opportunity to see the entire manufacturing process, from the initial design concept to the finished product. And don't worry if you only have a small group - with opportunities for history, politics, German and art, Berlin is an excellent choice for a cross-curricular school trip.
