School Trips to Munich
Set in the beautiful surroundings of the German Alps, Munich is home to pulchritudinous palaces, awe-inspiring avenues and glorious gardens.
On a school trip to Munich study the exquisite architecture on display; take a trip to the Frauenkirche and revel in its red-brick towers and twin domes; see the Olympic Tower, and if you're feeling brave, climb the 190m to the top and behold the most magnificent views of the city and its surroundings.
If there are budding engineers as part of your group, an excursion to the BMW headquarters is a must. Visit the home of the 'ultimate driving machine' and tour its museum, filled with over 125 exhibits covering the company's history.
Historians, too, are well served. Discover how the Nazi party rose to power in Munich by visiting the locations of the Beer Hall Putsch and the Hofbräuhaus where Hitler made his first major speeches. In addition, remember the 'Busby Babes' and the catastrophe that united football fans the world over and pay your respects to the 17 people who lost their lives so tragically at the Olympics in 1972.
With this and so much more on offer, a school tour to Munich with Equity will engage you and your students in this educational haven.
