Munich, Germany

History Trips for Schools to
Munich, Germany

A German city that is the image of an idealised Germanic past, but contains a brutal history and positive face looking forward.

Experience true Bavarian Germany and its old-world charm in Munich. As the city that gave rise to National Socialism, a trip will help any student chart the rise of Hitler and the Nazis in German politics. They can witness the sites where Hitler made his early speeches and attempted his failed Putsch of 1923, as well as explore plenty of Third Reich sites.

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.
