School Trips to Berlin

Berlin is a city bursting with culture, history and beauty, and is a great destination for a school trip. The museums, galleries and monuments are impressive whilst being thought-provoking and interesting, ensuring your students leave this city inspired by what they have seen.

Steeped in history, there’s so much to learn on a school trip to Berlin. Find out about life in the Eastern Bloc during the Cold War, uncover how the Third Reich persecuted the Jews and discover how the city was brought to the ground by Allied bombing during World War 2.

A popular option for German language groups, students can enhance their language skills at a variety of engaging attractions including Babelsberg Film Park, the DDR Museum and at Berlin Zoo.

On the other hand, if you have a group of art students looking for inspiration, The East Side Gallery and Berlinische Galerie are must visits when in the capital of Germany.

Excursions

Below is a sample of excursions Equity can organise for your school trip to Berlin - for subject specific excursions have a look at the
recommended educational trips for Berlin

Reichstag

One of the most frequently visited sights in Berlin, the Reichstag is the current home of the German parliament and a global symbol of democracy. A modern walkway inside the glass dome spirals to the top of Reichstag, boasting spectacular panoramic views of Berlin.

Sachsenhausen Memorial and Museum

Located about a 45 minute coach drive north of Berlin, Sachsenhausen Memorial and Museum is a must visit for history students. One of the largest concentration camps in Germany, Sachsenhausen is now a memorial and museum to remember and educate others about the Holocaust.

Berlin Wall Memorial

Once a border dividing the city in two, the remains of the Berlin Wall are now a symbol of peace and remembrance. The memorial and documentation centre share the story behind the construction of the wall in 1961 during the Cold War era, leading up to its fall in 1991.

East Side Gallery

After the fall of the Berlin Wall, over 100 artists from 21 countries gathered to paint a series of murals on the remains of the wall, depicting former times of pain, struggle and restriction. A popular excursion for history and art students, walk along the East Side Gallery and gain inspiration from the longest open-air gallery in the world.

Brandenburg Gate

One of the most iconic sites in the city of Berlin, the Brandenburg Gate is a neoclassical monument built during the 18th century which is now considered as a symbol of unity and peace.

Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe

Located close to the Brandenburg Gate, the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe is a moving tribute to the Jewish victims of the Holocaust. In total there are 2711 concrete slabs of varying heights dotted around 19,000 square metres, with paths cutting through allowing visitors to slowly make their way through and remember the Jews who were persecuted in Europe.

Guided Tour of Berlin’s Olympic Stadium

One of the most famous Olympic stadium’s in the world, a visit to this former Olympic park is a must when learning about the history of Berlin. Learn about the 1936 Summer Olympics and how the Nazi’s used it as a propaganda tool and discover how it was used during the FIFA World Cup in 2006.

Topography of Terror

Located close to Checkpoint Charlie, Topography of Terror is an outdoor and history museum focused on documenting the crimes and persecution committed by the Third Reich between 1933 and 1945. The museum is located on the former site of the headquarters of the Gestapo, as well as the SS and Reich Security Main Office.

DDR Museum

Learn about life in East Germany, during the standing of the Berlin Wall and Cold War at the DDR Museum. This interactive museum covers a range of topics – from everyday life in East Berlin, to the Berlin Wall and the Stasi Secret Police.

Checkpoint Charlie

Checkpoint Charlie is the most well known crossing between East and West Berlin from the Berlin Wall era. The checkpoint was used by Allied guards to register members of the American, British and French forces before they crossed into East Berlin. Today Checkpoint is a popular sight, where tourists flock to take photos with the dressed up “soldiers” standing with American flags.

TV Tower

Soaring 368 metres above the city, Berlin’s TV Tower is a must-see attraction when visiting here. Built during the GDR era, the TV Tower now allows tourists to the dizzying heights of its viewing platforms for breathtaking panoramic views of Berlin.

Berlinische Galerie

The Berlinische Galerie houses one of the city’s largest modern art collections, featuring famous works by Otto Dix, Max Liebermann and George Grosz. This is a must-see gallery for art students visiting Berlin.

Stasi Prison

Feared throughout Germany for the psychological and physical torture that occurred here, Stasi Prison gained a notorious reputation during the GDR era in East Berlin. The prison was the operational hub for the Stasi and held political prisoners from 1951 to 1989. Today, the site is a museum where students can learn about Berlin’s dark past.

Tropical Island

60 kms from Berlin is Tropical Island. An enormous dome covers an area the size of 8 football pitches housing the world’s largest indoor rainforest, a tropical ‘sea’ with a 200m long sandy beach and many other attractions.

Filmpark Babelsberg

Founded in 1912, more than 3,000 feature films and television productions have been created at the Babelsberg Filmpark. Watch the spectacular stuntshow, the television show in Studio 1, and the animal show.

Friedrichstraße

A major cultural and shopping street in Berlin where students can discover local goods and speak in German to shop owners.

Quick Tip: If you have an excursion in mind which you don't see listed, please get in touch so we can do our best to arrange it for you!

Excursions well organised & happy to include changes & amendments. Equity in UK very supportive. Students really enjoyed the trip - public transport was great & they particularly enjoyed the Stasi Prison. The weather was cold, but this made the trip to the Ritter shop for hot chocolate even better.

- Saints Pauls Catholic School, History Trip to Berlin, Cold War Specific

We arrange a concert tour every year and have found that the organisation of the concerts by Equity has been first class! Having used other tour providers, I would thoroughly recommend Equity for your music department tour - don’t bother with any other school/college travel company - just go straight to Equity!
