Berlin - What a great town!

Twenty Year 10 students and one Year 11 student spent last week in Berlin, the capital of Germany. It was a fantastic week packed with activities, museum visits and sun. Students enjoyed typical German food such as ,Currywurst’ and ,Fleischbällchen’ . They learned the basic facts as well as tiny details and anecdotes about the history of the Cold War. In the ‘Story of Berlin’ museum they learned in a very interactive way all the key dates of Berlin’s history and experienced how it feels to be in a real atomic bomb shelter. The Stasi Museum as well as the DDR Museum showed them the impact of the communist state on the daily life of an average citizen.

To have a rest from Germany’s buzzing capital, the students spent a day in Potsdam, a city only 30 minutes’ drive from Berlin. Here our guide, Doris, explained to us how life used to be in Potsdam in the 18th century when the town was the seat of the Prussian king, Friedrich the Great. Well preserved baroque streets and palaces such as Sanssouci and the more modern Cecilienhof were a delight to behold.

Berlin is famous not only for its history and the impact it had on modern post-war history, but also for its sub-culture as well. As part of this the students took part in a graffiti workshop where they created graffiti and street artwork of their own.

This educational trip to Berlin aimed to teach the students not just about the key points of modern history; it was also a great opportunity to practise the German language. Most of the tours were actually conducted in German.

Maybe you’ve received a postcard in German from Berlin telling you how great a time your children were having?
