Berlin 2018

Year 10s in Berlin

Year 10s may have escaped the British weather, but though there is no snow in Berlin it is 12 degrees below freezing.

This has not dampened students’ interest in this fascinating city. They have visited the Brandenburg Gate, a key crossing between the east and west of the city during the cold war, as well as the 1936 Olympic Stadium. Both of these are pictured here.

The visit also takes in other iconic Berlin landmarks such as Checkpoint Charlie and the Bundestag. Students will also visit the Holocaust Memorial and Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial.

All in all this is a trip that brings history vividly to life and the students will return with fresh perspectives on the story of the twentieth century.
