Suggested Itinerary

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.

01

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. Afterward, you will head to your accommodation, and we can even book you an evening meal at the accommodation or local restaurant if required.

02

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.

03

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.

04

You may have some free time before your return to 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.
