History School Trips to
Berlin & Kraków

It doesn't get much better than a history school trip to the thriving and historically-rich cities of Berlin and Krakow.

A two-centre tour to these two cities will give students the opportunity to see how and why important political decisions were made, as well as the devastating consequences these decisions had for the people.

In Berlin, students will learn how and why the Final Solution was put into place, whilst in Kraków, they’ll see the outcome of this decision in a truly heart-rending and thought-provoking visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau.

How does a two-centre tour work?

Your bespoke itinerary will include the appropriate balance of educational visits and leisure excursions to fill your chosen duration and meet your aims and objectives. Your dedicated Tour Co-ordinator will offer advice and recommendations with the sole aim of creating the perfect itinerary for your group, but just to get you inspired, we’ve outlined what a two-centre tour could look like in our sample itineraries.
