History School Trips to
the Netherlands

History school trips to The Netherlands can offer you everything from a historic journey through the themes of a developing Europe into the Second World War and the Holocaust, to a voyage through the modern world of culture, art and international relations.

Visit the city of Amsterdam and stroll by the canals to learn about the Netherlands as a country of trade, empire and influence, or retrace the steps of the Nazis as they invaded and occupied this beautiful city. Alternatively, a trip to Arnhem will let your students visit the areas used as allied landing zones, as well as Arnhem Bridge.

Of course, some of the most well-known accounts of Jewish life under the Nazis originate in this small country. The moving and truly inspirational account of Anne Frank brings to life the impossible situations the inhabitants faced, the bravery of those who tried to help them and the brutality and murderous intent of a regime that eventually destroyed the lives of most of them. Give your students the opportunity to widen their understanding of, and emotional engagement with, the conflict of the Second World War on a history school trip to the Netherlands.
