German Language Trips to Munich
According to the German tourist board you will see more Germans in Lederhosen in Munich than in any other German city, so why not visit the Bavarian capital for a taste of traditional German culture? After the substantial damage caused in World War II, Munich was rebuilt to match the city’s original style and structural design ensuring that it retained its Bavarian feel. Explore the spectacular royal palaces, the Baroque and Rococo churches, the classy shops and the impressive Olympic Stadium – all of which offer ample opportunities to practise your German skills in one of Germany’s most traditional cities.
Selection of Educational Excursions
The city’s oldest food market is always bustling with locals doing their shopping, enjoying a drink or grabbing some lunch at one of the stalls selling traditional produce. This is the perfect place for your students to practise their German, listening in to the many conversations happening around them, or to buy a Weisswurst and a pretzel.
Guided Tour of Munich
An expertly guided tour of the city allows you to find out more about the interesting culture, diverse history and famous landmarks of Munich. Visit the city’s oldest church, the Peterskirche, pass by the New Town Hall with its famous Glockenspiel and stand in awe of the distinct architecture found at the Frauenkirche - a great way to get your bearings of the city and tune in to the local accent!
The Allianz Arena is one of the finest football stadiums in the world, home to two of the country’s football clubs, TSV 1860 München and FC Bayern München. The most spectacular aspect of the futuristic construction is the lighting - the façade lights up in a white and blue or red and white pattern, depending on which of the two Munich teams is playing. A guided tour in German would be a sure hit for those wanting to practise sport and leisure vocabulary!
This stunning palace is home to several outstanding collections and is today one of Munich’s favorite attractions. Its lavish interior, the famous "Gallery of Beauties" and its impressive banquet hall with fine ceiling frescoes by Johann Baptist Zimmermann, all compliment the history of this fine stately ensemble.
The grounds of the 1972 summer Olympics contain sport facilities, lakes, bicycle paths, concert venues and a football stadium, as well as a 290 metre tower with an observation deck and restaurant. Since 1972 the stadium has hosted 31 World, 12 European and 93 German championships as well as a wide range of other important sports events, concerts, congresses and exhibitions.
Cross the border for the day and visit one of Austria’s finest cities, Salzburg. Unspoilt countryside with unique natural attractions and a beautiful old town centre offer visitors enchanting variety. The city’s magnificent Baroque town centre is rated as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site and can easily be explored on foot. Anyone interested in Austrian art, culture and music will find plenty to keep them occupied all day long.
