History School Trips to Munich, Germany

Contact us for your bespoke quotation

This charming city’s idealised Germanic past is blemished with a brutal history.

Whilst Bavaria’s capital is brimming with old-world charm, Munich was the city that gave rise to National Socialism. Chart the rise of Hitler and the Nazis in German politics, as you witness the sites where the leader made his early speeches and attempted his failed Putsch of 1923.

In contrast to one of the city’s darkest moments, Munich is also home to some of the more heroic incidents of human behaviour, including the story of siblings Hans and Sophie Scholl who joined their friends to create the White Rose resistance group to Nazism. Memorials to both them and the group’s activities promise a moving experience and are an essential part of a Munich trip.

Hitler’s Stomping Ground

What makes a visit to Munich all the more interesting is the chance to delve deeper into the life and mind of Adolf Hitler and the people he kept close to him. As his stomping ground after WWI, during his party’s rise to power and during WWII, many of the sites in and around the city help your students to uncover more about the man himself.

Why Munich?

Munich may be the latest addition to our selection of History Trip destinations but it’s quickly shaping up to be one of the favourites.

Day 2:

Today started with a Third Reich History Trip of Munich with their guide Jeff Cox. The group took in the historical sights of Munich including Hofgarten and the sites of mass party rallies at Konigsplatz along with the many examples of museums, churches and historic buildings. Once lunch had been eaten it was onto the Nymphenburg Palace; the baroque palace of the Bavarian monarchs. Using public transport it was then onto the Olympic Tower for breathtaking views of the city and the Alps beyond from a staggering 190m up. For a festive end to the day it was onto the centre of Munich for a visit to the Christmas market at Marienplatz before the group returned to the hotel. The group enjoyed a much needed nights rest.

“All excursions were very good, but the day in Nuremberg was the best trip by far.”

Mr Rob Potter, Harrow School - Munich

Day 3:

The group ate breakfast and then collected their packed lunch before meeting up with their tour guide for their departure to Dachau Concentration Camp and Memorial site. The students learned of the many experiments that were carried out at this camp, which made it an extremely revealing and moving experience. The group returned to Munich for some much needed relaxation, a visit to the Christmas markets provided just this opportunity, before dining at the Donisl Restaurant for their early evening meal.

Day 4:

The group checked out of the hostel and loaded the coach before departing for Nuremberg and the Documentation Centre, the intended future headquarters of the Nazi party. The group then took a guided tour of Nazi Party Rally grounds plus Nuremberg city sites before their departure home and arrival back in the UK.
