About this trip

Otto von Bismarck’s proclamation in Versailles’ Hall of Mirrors in January 1871 heralded the birth of a new nation, Germany. In the 150 years which followed, this nation and, in particular its capital city, would experience almost continual change. These transitions from Empire to Republic, Fascist Dictatorship to Soviet Occupation, Partition to Reunification, would all leave their scars on the city of Berlin and on its people.

Anglia offers fully-guided school history trips to Berlin which will provide your group with the perfect opportunity to trace the history of Germany from its origins to reunification. Why not start with the Siegessaϋle and the Brandenburg Gate to look at the last vestiges of Prussia then take a tour of the Reichstag building, once again the seat of German Government; visit the excellent exhibition in the German-Russian Museum in Karlshorst, site of Germany’s unconditional surrender in 1945; walk down Bernauer Strasse and explore the various memorials along the former course of the Berlin Wall. There is so much to see and do.

Why choose Anglia for Guided History Trips?

At Anglia we care about our customers, our staff, the places we visit, the stories we tell and the organisations we work with. These key principles define who we are and what we do. We believe they are also the reason why Anglia is the market leader in fully-guided history trips for UK schools. We work with you to design a bespoke tour which meets the specific needs of your school and which supports what you are teaching in class. We start by asking what you want your students to see and what you want them to experience then build the tour around these requirements. A tour which, as the testimonials on our website show, your students will find thought-provoking, engaging and enjoyable.

Please can you pass on my thanks to both John and Sean who did a fantastic job as our guides on Friday. They were engaging and exceptionally knowledgeable which was noted by both staff and pupils. I would thoroughly recommend you as a tour provider, and hope to use you guys again in the future!

We definitely will be looking to re-book with you for next academic year
