GERMAN LANGUAGE AND CULTURE SCHOOL TRIPS
Our Company prides itself on the high standard of its German Language tours, which provide pupils with a fantastic opportunity to practise their language skills in a real-life setting whilst immersing themselves in the unique culture of Germany. Whether it’s a shorter trip to experience the festive atmosphere of the Christmas Markets in Aachen or Cologne; or a longer tour to explore the beautiful German Rhineland or the cosmopolitan and historic capital city, Berlin; your pupils will be exposed to a variety of German linguistic and cultural features which are sure to bring to life the language which they study in the classroom. We can also arrange for your pupils to have language lessons during their time in Germany, providing a splendid academic component to the tour which will complement their learning outside of the classroom.

This small spa city, which is a stone’s throw from the Dutch and Belgian borders, is the ideal destination for school groups hoping to sample German culture during a shorter tour or an extended day trip. With its impressive Cathedral and Rathaus, Aachen’s pedestrianised cobbled Old Town is the perfect place for strolling and shopping. The city also hosts one of the area’s most popular Christmas Markets in late November and December, and a visit to Aachen can also be incorporated into a tour to Cologne or the German Rhineland.

With its beautiful Old Town and imposing Gothic Cathedral, Cologne is our most popular destination for German language tours. Nestled of the banks of the Rhine, this friendly city has an array of exciting excursions to offer, as well as a range of excellent accommodation for school groups. The home of Eau de Cologne and the wonderful Schokoladenmuseum, not forgetting the six festive Christmas Markets that open at the end of the year, it’s easy to see why many of our schools decide to return year after year.

A school trip to the beautiful Rhine Valley is highly recommended for students of German, where our wide range of excursions and town visits will give them ample opportunity to practise their language skills. From a boat trip on the Rhine to a visit to one of the many castles in the region, a school trip to this magical area will provide an unforgettable experience for your students. The German Rhineland can be enjoyed all year round, whether in the warm summer months, or in winter, when the Christmas Markets add a touch of sparkle.

A school trip to one of the many German Christmas Markets is the perfect way to inspire students of German to put their language skills into practice.

A thriving city rich in history and culture, Berlin is the perfect destination for German language students, providing them with the ideal opportunity to practise and build confidence in their language skills, to learn more about German culture, and for many pupils to sample German cuisine for the first time. With dozens of fascinating museums and not forgetting the beautiful Prussian palaces, Germany’s capital city has something to please everyone. The fact that we now offer flight packages to Berlin, in addition to coach travel, makes this city more accessible than ever to school groups. Please click here to visit our Berlin page.
BLACK FOREST AND STRASBOURG
The pretty Black Forest is sometimes overlooked as a school trip destination, but it should definitely be considered for a German language trip, as it has a more traditional feel than some of the more popular destinations. In addition, its proximity to the French border and the historical city of Strasbourg make it the obvious destination for pupils studying both French and German.
