History School Trips to
Berlin, Germany

Embark on a history school trip to Berlin and explore the city that is modern Germany, where the streets still bear the marks of history.

Having come into existence in 1871 as a modern country, Germany was formed based on language and culture, rather than religion, bringing with it a capital at the heart of it all. Today, Berlin the city is full of iconic sites and a history school trip to Berlin will help negotiate your students through the eras of German history, from Martin Luther to the reunification of a divided country.

You’ll uncover a piece of the past with every corner turned. While the streets and palaces tell the story of Berlin and Germany’s rise to importance and the public buildings lead students through the First World War, the poignant museums and memorials address the horrors and persecutions of the Nazi era.

Striking memorials at the Tiergarten and Treptower Park can reveal the legacy of the 20th century, as do the remnants of the Berlin Wall and Sachsenhausen concentration camp.

Whether you choose to focus on a single historic period or explore a number of themes, embarking on a history school trip to Berlin and stepping back into the history of this intriguing city promises to be a fascinating and thought-provoking journey for any student.
