Take a German school trip to Berlin, Germany’s buzzing capital, to give your students an unforgettable introduction to German culture!

Berlin is the perfect setting in which to inspire a love of all things German in your students. It’s packed full of fascinating history and yet is still a modern, vibrant and cool city.

Whether it’s meeting a former Cold War political prisoner, taking part in a street art workshop, making your own chocolate bars or touring the city by bike or Segway, your itinerary will be carefully designed to meet your requirements, to ensure your students enjoy the experience of Berlin that you want them to have.

Are your students preparing for exams? Then you may like to consider our German Language Study Trip to Berlin instead, as this includes German language lessons at a specialist language school.
