School Language Trips to Berlin
Dive into the beating heart of Germany
Welcome to a city with two sides. Whilst the first is a cultural trendsetter brimming with cutting-edge architecture, the second is a time capsule where centuries of past events radiate from every street.
On a school German trip to Berlin, you’ll be captivated by the stories of the Second World War and the Cold War that are still so evident in the buildings and memorials. Mingle amongst the market-goers, marvel at the murals of the East Side Gallery and give into Berlin’s traditional charm and vibrant spirit.

FAQs about this tour
Find the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions.
Are language lessons always in a classroom?
Not always! Some German language schools may offer activities like a treasure hunt (which is a quiz around an area or the city where questions take students place to place, encouraging them to use their German to interact with people and places).
Combining language learning with a fun, and often, cultural activity – giving your students a real bang for their linguistic buck!
How will me and my students get to Berlin?
We like to use flights due to them giving you more time to enjoy the German capital – meaning your students have increased opportunities to practice their German and enjoy all the historic and cultural aspects of this spectacular capital.
How will my pupils get to grips with and experience Berlin culture?
There’s so many things to see and do in this thriving metropolis to give you a taste of being a true Berliner you’ll be spoilt for choice!
From grabbing a currywurst or pretzel to soaking in the sights whilst on a boat tour or simply getting around on the underground, there’s a wealth of choice for your pupils and you to experience what it’s like being a resident of this brilliant city.
