Black Forest

MFL School Trips to the Black Forest

Overview

Price from
£355
Based on 3 night tour for
30 students and 3 staff

This cherished region, in south west Germany, has an ingrained local culture and breath-taking natural landscapes. Bordering France and Switzerland, the Black Forest offers German language students the opportunity to interact with neighbouring countries, as well as immersing themselves in a welcoming, German speaking society.

More than 200km of mountainous terrain and thick forests comprise this charismatic region. Renowned for its cuckoo-clocks, thermal springs, excellent wines and rich forest harvests, the Black Forest is a major draw for holiday makers worldwide. Many of the region’s unique costumes and traditional crafts are housed in Triberg; a small city in the heart of the forest. A cable-car ride up to Schauinsland Mountain provides spectacular views over the region and of the Black Forest’s many fairy-tale castles; Hohenzollern is one of the most impressive.

Students can order speciality coffees and Black Forest Gateaux in the regional capital of Freiburg. Encourage them to ask for directions as they navigate around the open streams in the cobbled Old Town. Put your students shopping skills to practice in Freiburg’s traditional markets or browse the elegant boutiques in Baden-Baden.  Extend your students understanding of the region and add to their vocabulary base when they explore breath taking valleys, identifying flowers and animals, as your pupils take it all in. Apply their linguistic expertise in an exciting setting as they ride the rollercoasters in Europa-Park.
