Modern Foreign Languages Trips to Cologne

For students of German language and culture the capital of the Rhineland has much to offer. The famous cathedral in the centre of the city is a fabulous example of Gothic architecture and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Students can take a panoramic Rhine River Cruise, visit the Chocolate museum, enjoy a world of science and discovery at Odysseum and enjoy thrills at Phantasialand theme park, there is so much that the city has to offer that is both educational and fun.

It is perhaps most enchanting at Christmas when the city is transformed by seven Christmas markets which are some of the best on the continent and offer students a magical backdrop to enjoy this city. Whenever you choose to visit, the charm of this city is sure to delight your students.

What You Say

It was an excellent learning experience for the students and they were very positive and enthusiastic about the trip. The Marksburg Castle trip was absolutely wonderful and everybody commented that they had learnt a lot and enjoyed the visit. The Chocolate Museum was very informative and interesting. 

Iveshead School

The information pack was very helpful and much better organised than other study group organisers. The team was most helpful in all aspects especially when we had decided to fly instead of going by coach. 

Thomas Kensington Day School

We had a great trip overall and the students got to practice their language skills which was the main objective. Phantasialand was great! 

St Edwards School

I feel that EST did everything possible, especially in the planning stages, to make sure the trip ran smoothly.
