If you're looking for a school football tour that will allow your students the opportunity to experience the magic of the Bundesliga, then a tour to FC Köln is the perfect choice. One of the original 16 teams in Germany's top flight, FC Köln also have the honour of being the league's first ever champions.

This tour offers excellent value for money - your team will take part in training sessions led by the club's own youth coaches, before pitting their skills against local opposition of a similar standard.

Plus, you can choose to add match tickets to your package, which will allow you to see live Bundesliga action, either at FC Köln, or one of the other massive clubs in the area, such as Borussia Dortmund, FC Schalke 04 or Bayer Leverkusen!

As a dad, I take great joy in hearing from other parents about how much their children loved our trips! – Dan Morley Sports Sales & Product Manager

Don't take our word for it …

Superb 4 day trip to Barca / Salou 24th September. Travelled with 36 pupils who had a fantastic time at the Cambrills Sports Village, fixtures, coaching,theme park, nou camp etc. Every aspect of the tour was superbly organised and went to plan and all as described. Great communication, planning and value for money from Halsbury. I will be doing the same again next year with them. Brilliant trip, thank you to Halsbury, Kate, Maria for a hassle free well organised school tour. — Wheelers Lane Technology College , September 2023
