Berlin School Trip

A History school trip to Berlin brings many of the major events in modern history to life. With its powerful history, evocative landmarks and expressive style, Berlin offers an immensely rewarding and diverse learning experience.

Home to such famous and iconic landmarks as the Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag, Berlin has developed from a city in transition to a modern cosmopolitan city that is perfect for all school trips.

Berlin specifically carries great significance as a destination for students studying Nazi Germany, German history and World War II. With a vast array of museums and historical attractions the city brings to life the dramatic events of World War II in detailed fashion ensuring students never underestimate or forget the terrible acts that took place during the war.

In addition, the new History Curriculum modules that focus on the Cold War ensure that Berlin has even more prominence at an ideal history destination for your students, with East Germany communist and Cold War sites such as Checkpoint Charlie, TV Tower, DDR Museum and much more all available for your group to explore.  Adaptable Travel can help tailor your trip to ensure your cover the aspects of the curriculum important to you.

A school trip to Berlin offers a unique opportunity for school groups to see first hand the history of this city that shaped the world’s history, putting textbook into context.  A Germany school trip also offers a superb ooportunity for a German language experience, allowing students to practice their German language skills in a real-world setting.

Excellent tour overall. The students and staff had a super time. We used public transport which was absolutely fine, just takes a little longer to negotiate.
City Light hotel was a perfect base to explore.

2 Centre Tour: Why not visit Krakow on the same trip allowing students to gain a complete overview of The Holocaust and WWII? Ask one of our sales advisors for more information today.

Let Adaptable Travel work with you to create a truly bespoke, curriculum-based Berlin school trip. Below is a popular itinerary based on 4 Day, 3 Night for History school trip groups.


After arriving in Berlin, subject to your flight time you may have enough time to explore some of Berlin’s sites before you check into your accommodation. If this is the case, we suggest you head straight to the Berlin Wall memorial to get an overview of the significance of this structure to the city. Afterwards, you will head onto your accommodation, and we can even book you an evening meal at the accommodation or local restaurant if required.


Today your students will have the chance to explore the history of Berlin by taking The Story of Berlin Museum Tour. This will be followed by guided insider walking tour, taking in a visit to the Holocaust Memorial, Checkpoint Charlie, the Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag parliament building (please note the Reichstag needs to be booked directly by the school, but we can assist with contact details). Finally enjoy an evening meal, pre-booked by Adaptable Travel.


Today your students will continue their education of the Nazis by visiting the Topography of Terror, to truly understand the impacts of the Nazi Gestapo, in their HQ. In the afternoon, continue to the famous Checkpoint Charlie, a famous point now dedicated to the history of the East and West divide. Finally, visit the Berlin TV Tower and rise above the city for striking views. Follow this with some free time and an evening meal.


You may have some free time before your return the UK. Extended durations are available – if you decide to extend your stay, we highly recommend visiting the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp, located just outside of Berlin (35km). This former Nazi concentration camp, now a museum, was primarily used for political prisoners during WW2. If you have the energy, we highly recommend a visit to the Olmypiastadium –built as a showpiece of the Nazi regime for the infamous 1936 Olympics where Hitler conducted speeches welcoming the world.

Adaptable Travel can tailor make an itinerary around the needs of your group. Contact Adaptable Travel today to start organising your next Berlin school trip.
