History trips to Berlin

The hub of the Third Reich, Berlin has huge historical significance in the 20th Century and provides History student groups with a vast array of learning material.

The partitioning of the city became Europe's most tangible symbol of the Cold War and History groups can see how the city has recovered and been rejuvenated since the reunification. 

Explore the poignant Holocaust Memorial and Jewish Museum, both prominent sites of remembrance to the Murdered Jews of Europe, located in the centre of Berlin. While sites including the Topography of Terror, DDR Museum and Hohenschönhausen Memorial Centre serve as just a handful of richly informative historical visits. 

Major monuments symbolise past events in Berlin, from the famous Reichstag building to the former border crossing point known as ‘the palace of tears’, there is almost an abundance of insightful and engaging educational sites within the city.
