School Trips to Cologne

School trips to Cologne offer your students the exciting opportunity to visit this spectacular cathedral city at the heart of the Rhineland!

Although most popular among German and science groups, whatever your reason for your school trip to Cologne, we’ll tailor it to suit your curriculum and specific learning objectives.

Why visit Cologne?

Unbelievable science

For school science trips to Cologne, there are almost too many options to choose from! You could choose to see the highest cold-water geyser in the world in nearby Andernach.

Or you could find out about how the Neanderthal Man was discovered in this area and what that meant for our understanding of hominids, at the Neanderthal Museum.

You could even visit the German Aerospace Center, where the aircraft of the future are developed, rocket engines are tested and images of distant planets are analysed.

And why not see physics in action at Phantasialand theme park?

Get your students talking!

Cologne is the cultural centre of the Rhineland, which makes it a great choice for a German school trip designed to introduce your students to Germany and the German culture.

Here, they’ll have plenty of opportunities to practise speaking German with locals in everyday situations.

We can also offer German lessons at a specialist language school, which is a great option for GCSE and A-level groups preparing for exams.

Cologne also hosts a number of Christmas markets, making it a great choice for a festive treat designed to get your students talking! The cathedral is home to the Shrine of the Three Kings too, so a visit here is a fantastic option on your Christmas markets school trip to Cologne.

Create lasting memories

There is a great variety of activities and visits available in Cologne. For those interested in the city’s history, visits to the Cologne City Museum and the Roman-Germanic Museum are a must. A ride on the Rhine Cable Car offers a spectacular panoramic view of the city, while a boat trip along the Rhine also offers lovely views.

And whatever your reason for visiting Cologne, two highlights of your school trip are bound to be the Chocolate Museum and Phantasialand. At the Chocolate Museum, your students will learn about how chocolate is made and, of course, they’ll be able to taste some! Phantasialand is one of Europe’s top theme parks and a great way to round off an unforgettable school trip to Cologne!
