Berlin History Tour 2017

Monday 27th February 2017

Around 40 Lower 5 and Upper 5 history and German students took part in an exciting trip to Berlin over February half term.

The students had a packed itinerary for the four days. A guided tour of Berlin took in a visit to the Brandenburg gate and the German Parliament, with its fantastic transparent dome offering outstanding views of the city. Among the museums we visited were the beautifully designed Jewish museum, the somber Topography of Terror and the interactive DDR museum, where students tested their driving skills in a simulation “Trabi” car. Our excursion day took us to Sachsenhausen concentration camp, the Olympic Stadium, and the House of the Wannsee Conference. Among all this, we managed to find time for some bowling and a visit to the famous TV tower!

Sammi of the L5 commented:

“This year’s Berlin tour was an incredible experience. To anyone thinking of going I would recommend it. It is a great way to understand the immense topics we deal with in history GCSE. Among a packed itinerary, we visited Sachsenhausen concentration camp, which I feel helped many of us with our understanding of the gravity of the Holocaust, and persecution of the Germans under the Nazis. The infirmary was a very interesting part of the museum, as all the information was translated into English. The DDR museum was also great for our understanding of the east and the west side of Berlin, and of course the rest of Germany after the war. As we do not learn this through our GCSE course, it showed how much we are actively interested in History beyond the topics we are studying at the moment.”
