School Language Trips to The Rhineland

A fairy tale world brought to life

Succumb to the enchantments of rural Germany
From £299pp i

Where breathtaking scenery steeped in legendary folklore meets traditional German towns and cities, the rural beauty of the Rhineland offers that authentic German experience and then some. Enchanting palaces and hill-top castles line the River Rhine, whilst the cobbled streets and classic architecture in Cologne and Koblenz give a taste of ‘real Germany’.

The friendly locals will welcome you with open arms and your German will be put to the ultimate test. Home to some of the best Christmas Markets around, why not give your school German trip to the Rhineland a festive feel and travel in December?

FAQs about this tour

Find the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions.

  • Is our Tour Manager fully DBS (formerly CRB) checked?

    Our Tour Managers, Field Study Tutors and History Tour Guides, with UK citizenship, have an enhanced DBS check. Non UK citizenship Tour Managers cannot be checked under the DBS scheme. Rayburn Tours will seek confirmation that Tour Managers are suitable for working with children by liaising with relevant foreign agents and monitoring group feedback.

  • Do you provide risk assessments for hotels?

    Rayburn Tours have individual audits which are completed on every hotel/accommodation centre which we use. We are more than happy for you to see this should you wish. Our audits cover fire safety, means of escape and general safety.

  • Are seatbelts provided on foreign coaches?

    This depends on the country where you are visiting and their local laws. However, we will always endeavour to use coach companies who use coaches fitted with seatbelts.

  • What does our insurance cover us for?

    Our insurance providers offer comprehensive cover to our groups for the duration of their tour and is tailored specifically for schools, with specialist insurance policies for individual tour types. As with any insurance cover, it is vital that you read through the terms and conditions and that you declare any relevant information as requested. Please see our insurance page for further information and to see what is covered. For groups opting to take their own insurance, we highly recommend that you read all inclusions and exclusions prior to departure.
