With the new Berlin Tube Map making the city easier to explore there is no better time than now to organise a School trip to Berlin.
If you have ever travelled around a big city your perception of where everything is located can often be blurred as you navigate the city underground oblivious of what is lying above you. Tube maps and stations can become one big maze of routes and names which can often leave people unaware of how the jigsaw puzzle of a city fits together. With so much time spent on the tube in search of popular landmarks and famous monuments, Photo-on-Canvas has come up with the ingenious idea of adapting the Berlin tube map to incorporate where the most photographed sights of Berlin are. They have developed the free Berlin Tube Map to illustrate where the most photographed squares, buildings and monuments are in Berlin so tourists can build a picture of where is everything is located in relation to the tube they are navigating.
With further editions for Paris and London in development, the new and improved tube map is a great way for all visitors and even locals to re-discover the fascinating sights of a city within the context of a tube map. Now tourists will know exactly where to jump off the tube for a quick picture of Checkpoint Charlie or which route to choose so they can visit all the different sights of East Berlin. The map is available as a printable pdf version and comes with a handy checklist of all the sights where you can tick of each one you have visited. The map can be downloaded for free at www.photo-on-canvas.co.uk/news/articles/berlin-tube-map
As the new tube map shows, Berlin is a city packed full of interesting places, famous monuments and popular landmarks which will appeal to all students on a school trip. It is a city infused with character and different cultures that create a colorful and vibrant atmosphere which students can explore in great detail. With a complex story like no other city in Europe, Berlin is particularly well suited to history students looking to learn about World War II and Nazi Germany with visits to the Reichstag, the Holocaust Memorial and the Olympic Stadium providing context to their studies. Berlin also boasts many art galleries and design museums such as the Bauhaus Museum making it an excellent destination to inspire students on an art and design school trip.
