School Trips to Berlin

Berlin manages to encapsulate all that is modern about Europe, whilst not forgetting its turbulent past. 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. Nowadays, people look to Berlin for the latest trends in lifestyle, music and art as well as taking the lead in the political and economic sphere of the EU.

For students of 20th Century History, Berlin has played a key part in the events of the time and the scars are often still visible; visits include the Brandenburg Gate and the Wannsee Conference Memorial House where the plans for the Final Solution were drawn up.

For Art & Design students The Bauhaus-Archiv Museum of Design and a visit to the East Side Galley, which has approximately 106 paintings by artists all over the world and stretches for 1.3km on the longest surviving stretch of the Berlin Wall, is a must.

Berlin is a world class city of culture, politics, media and science and therefore students of any discipline will find visits and experiences to enhance their learning and ensure they have an experience they'll never forget.

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.
