School Citizenship Trips to Berlin
Germany wears its wealth well with elegant big-cities, small picturesque towns, pagan-inspired harvest festivals, a fine selection of art and culture and everlasting tracks of forest, delightful castles and charming Christmas markets. Home of the Black Forest gateaux, Germany offers a plentiful selection of fine food and home brewed beer.
The city of Berlin has a remarkable history. Once the capital of Prussia and centre of the Weimar Republic, the city was partially destroyed during the Second World War, then split between the victorious allies. The Brandenburg Gate, once an integral part of the Berlin Wall, is now the symbol of a free metropolis. The city is constantly changing and visitors will experience the contrast of old and new which so characterises Berlin.
