This was a joint trip for students studying either History or German and was a perfect combination for enhancing knowledge on both subjects. The Beethoven Gymansium School proudly hosted the UK students and provided lots of the opportunities for the students to practise their German!
The students began their visit with a guided tour of the vibrant city of Berlin, this was combined with a visit to the East Side Gallery and finished off with a fun game of bowling with the German students.
The following morning the students visited the Deutsche Historisches Museum and took part in the camera challenge, showcasing their creative skills and finished with a German film, Lola.
Saturday and the last full day of the trip was spent at the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp, a former Nazi camp near Berlin, giving the students an emotional piece of German history. After the visit the students had time to do some shopping in the centre of Berlin and finished the trip with a tasty meal in a typical German restaurant with their new German friends.
The final day, Sunday, was spent visiting the impressive TV Tower and admiring the views of this exciting capital city before travelling back to England.
