Tailor-made School Trips to Berlin

The story of Berlin has to be one of the most fascinating studies in 20th century history. Partition confirmed the city as the frontline of the Cold War and as a result school trips to Berlin or educational tours give a unique insight, where you can study the realities of superpower rivalry.

The Berlin Wall was constructed in 1961 to separate the Soviet controlled side of Germany from the America, French and British side after the Second World War. It separated the two halves of Germany for 28 years until it's fall in 1989. By 2006, Germany hosted the World Cup with the final in Berlin. People from all different nations joined together in this once divided city.

Each of our school trips to Berlin put you in the heart of the culture and history that surrounds Berlin. It has become a magnet for artists and many of the city's world-class collections have been reformed. The result is a culturally diverse, dynamic and exciting capital at the forefront of European youth culture. Our school trips to Berlin ensure that your class will have an experience they'll never forget.

Why not also take a look at our school trips to Barcelona or attend Your Future In Europe conference in Paris and see what we can offer you.
