A history school trip to Berlin offers your students the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the rise of National Socialism, life under the Nazi regime, the Holocaust and much, much more!

Berlin tells a unique story of imperial power, the birth and death of regimes, race and persecution and, eventually, stable democracy.

There are so many excellent historical sites and museums to visit in Berlin, from Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp, to the Topographie of Terror and the Haus der Wannsee Konferenz. We’ll work closely with you to design an itinerary that is tailored perfectly to your learning objectives.

I love inspiring curiosity in schools searching for the perfect trip to a destination I have first-hand experience in visiting. I love to learn what their travel plans are, the purpose for their trip and how this links back to the curriculum so that I can prepare an entirely tailored trip as if I were visiting myself. – Tom Moorhouse Tour Consultant

Don't take our word for it …

Great destination. Highlights were – the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the mathematical walking tour, rafting, the Da Vinci Museum and the cinema. We had a fantastic maths trip and loved Pisa and Florence. Halsbury were incredibly helpful and efficient from start to finish – I can’t recommend them highly enough. — Denmark Road High School for Girls , October 2018
