Beneath Berlin’s vibrant urban culture lies a rich and complex history. Visit the palaces that tell the story of Berlin and Germany’s rise to importance, and explore the poignant museums and memorials that address the horrors and persecutions of the Nazi era.

We’re thrilled to see schools are still keen to travel and already planning for later this year and 2022.

So when you’re ready, we’ll help get you back out there. Because with our extensive touring history and specialist teams, you’ll be in safe hands.

Ultimately, the further you can plan ahead, the better.
