Your school trip to Munich will give your students the opportunity to explore a historic German city that remains an important cultural centre for modern Germany!
Munich is the third-largest city in Germany and the capital of Bavaria. Munich is an important centre for art, science and culture, and the city’s museums, vibrant art scene and string of festivals make for a diverse and educational trip.
This sophisticated city has a long history and boasts a range of historical and cultural activities, especially for those studying the Nazis and the Holocaust. During the 1920s, Munich was the home of a number of emerging political factions, including the NSDAP, which is why the Nazis called the city the ‘Capital of the Movement’.
Munich is a truly charismatic city and an excellent choice for a German school trip, especially if you are looking for a trip that will both introduce your students to the German culture and inspire in them a passion for the language and the country.
Some of the most popular visits among our groups include Neuschwanstein, a fairy tale castle made famous by Disney, and the Olympic Park constructed for the 1972 Olympic Games, which remains a marvel of modern engineering.
