Overview

While Berlin is arguably most famous for its rich and poignant history, its cutting-edge architecture and futuristic designs make it an excellent destination for Design and Technology trips. 

Its creativity stems from its turbulent history, and the designs that were painted onto the East Side Gallery commemorate the fight for freedom and change that took place after the fall of the Berlin Wall.  It's true that the past is very much present wherever you go.

When it comes to creativity, the sky’s the limit in Berlin, Europe's newest start-up capital.  In the last 20 years, the city has become a giant lab of cultural expression and experimentation; the Berlin TV Tower is a flagship of East German architecture and the Deutsches Technikmuseum allows your students to explore the cultural history of technology.

There is also the opportunity to have a tour or workshop at the KPM Porcelain Manufacturers, where your students will be able to watch the design manufacturing process from start to finish.

Our Suggested Itinerary

Travelling by air.

    Morning flight to Berlin from the UK and transfer to accommodation.

    Admire the murals of the East Side Gallery, a preserved section of the Berlin Wall painted as an "International Memorial for Freedom" by protest Artists.

    Visit the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, a disorienting Holocaust memorial made up of 2711 concrete slabs in wave-like, undulating formations.

    Photo opportunity at the iconic Brandenburg Gate before a visit to the Reichstag Building - its enormous glass dome and spiral walkway are an engineering feat!
