School Trips to Berlin

If you’re considering an educational visit to a place that captures European culture and history, have you considered a school trip to Berlin? Berlin manages to encapsulate all that is modern about Europe, whilst not forgetting its turbulent past.

Berlin is a world-class city of culture, politics, media and science. Students of any discipline will find experiences that enhance their learning and ensure they have a school trip to Berlin they'll never forget, whether the focus is on art, history, psychology, business or language.

What are the benefits of an educational trip to Berlin? 

Since the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, Berlin has undergone a building boom and has truly shed the ills of the past to establish itself as a funky, dynamic and creative city.  The city boasts some of the most impressive monuments you are likely to see in Western Europe, most with an incredible story behind them, including; the Brandenburg Gate, Reichstag, Holocaust Memorial and Berlin Wall.

Walk through the city centre and admire the inspirational architecture and beauty of the city. School trips to Berlin are packed with chances to learn and have fun, perfect for classes of any age or interest. We design our Berlin school trips to ensure your students get the most out of their visit. We prioritise maximising educational value, so your students can extract invaluable real-world experience and learning opportunities during their time in one of Europe’s grandest cities. 

The expansive range of cultural influences and settings in Berlin provides ample learning opportunities for students across various subjects. For students on a historical school trip, venues such as the Holocaust Museum uncover the harsh reality of life during the Second World War. For students who study any of the STEM subjects, an educational science trip to Berlin provides amazing insights into the world of engineering and technological innovation.

Top Tips from Our Travel Experts

Berlin is easily accessible from most of the UK and we have some fantastic hotels there of a very high standard. It is great for different subjects meaning groups can combine if they need to increase their numbers. The people are friendly and its cheap and easy to get around. My top tips are:

1. Book as soon as you can. Some visits book up more than six months ahead, so be quick to avoid disappointment.

2. Familiarise yourself with the public transport system before you travel. It is very efficient and easy to use – as long as you prepare ahead of time.

3. If you are studying multiple eras of Berlin’s history, consider organising your visits by topic instead of geographical convenience.

4. We have lots of different types of restaurants available, from traditional German sausages, to American burgers or Indian curries.

5. Climb the Reichstag building at night – the views from the top are fantastic. This is a fun, free evening activity.
