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.

Most history groups who choose to visit Munich do so as part of their studies of the Nazis and the Holocaust and many choose to include a visit to nearby Nuremberg to complete the trip. On a history school trip to Munich, you could choose to take a walking tour with a focus on National Socialism and resistance, where your students will gain a deeper understanding of the importance of the city at the beginning of Hitler’s political career.

And you’ll also be able to visit the White Rose Foundation’s memorial exhibition, where your students will learn more about the White Rose students’ resistance movement. Interactive media installations will allow your students to discover the individual stories of members, including Sophie and Hans Scholl.
