Suggested itinerary for School groups
One thing is for certain, when you take a school trip to Berlin – no matter how long your stay, you won’t run out of things to do. Known for its incredibly diverse culture, Berlin is a city of the arts, of great historical significance, and of surprisingly good food.
Berlin is a popular destination for school history tours, as a focal point of the Cold War. Reminders of the war are everywhere. Several sections of the Berlin Wall, the symbolic division line between West and East Germany, still stand today. The section in Friedrichshain is known as the East Side Gallery, and displays artwork and graffiti from over a hundred international artists.
Checkpoint Charlie, the most well-known of the border crossings between East and West, is now one of Berlin’s most popular tourist attractions. Unique artefacts on show including many of the contraptions used by those who tried to cross illegally, and works inspired by the division, will vividly bring the past to life for your students.
On a clear day, the best place to be in Berlin is the top of the Reichstag building. 360 degree views are available from the glass dome on top of the German Parliament building, but be warned, booking well in advance is essential.
The Pergamon Museum is one of Germany’s most visited sites, and also one of the most controversial. On display are huge, reconstructed buildings imported from Turkey, which should provoke debate among students on the themes of ownership and protection for artworks.
Very few Berlin building survived World War Two unscathed – the Olympic Stadium was one of them. Commissioned by Hitler, glorified by Leni Riefenstahl, and upstaged by Jesse Owens, the stadium is a masterpiece of design. The monumental stone towers at the entrance which support the Olympic rings are particularly breath-taking.
