Why visit Cologne?
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!
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.
