On your German school trip to Berlin, combine language lessons with cultural activities, while exploring this vibrant, exciting city full of German history and culture!

Berlin is a brilliant cross-curricular destination, with a rich history and culture that offers students excellent opportunities to practise their German. After lessons, students can visit historical sites, such as the Brandenburg Gate, Checkpoint Charlie and the Reichstag, visit museums and enjoy open-air concerts.

Lessons are offered in closed groups with the content designed to meet your curriculum. And all teachers are fully-qualified native speakers.

If you're looking for a more laidback introduction to Germany, you may prefer our German Culture Trip to Berlin, which combines cultural activities and sightseeing, without the German language lessons.

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 …

Great trip. Madrid is a brilliant destination for a short stay. We were always kept informed by Halsbury and are already thinking about a possible future trip! — Greenacre Academy , February 2019
