The group will explore Munich city centre on foot, getting familiar with its history and main sights including Marienplatz square, which is the wonderful setting of the city’s most traditional Christmas market in December.
One of the mornings will be spent brushing up on language skills with a German teacher students and they will also get to visit two of Munich’s top museums: Deutsches Museum and BMW World.
One of the first and best Science and Technology museums in the world, the Deutsches Museum’s main focus is active learning. Future scientists will get immersed in interactive exhibitions, fascinating experiments and other fun-filled scientific activities to spark their creativity.
To learn more about the history of the region, we have also included a visit to the Nymphenburg Palace and Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial.
At the 17th century Nymphenburg Palace they will admire the luxurious Summer residence of the Bavarian royals; and one of the finest gardens in Germany at the palace’s park.
In Dachau students will learn about Nazi Germany, World War II and the Holocaust, some of the darkest chapters of European modern history. Opened in the 1930s, the Dachau concentration camp and ‘school of terror’ served as a template for other concentration camps during the war.
Over 200,000 people were imprisoned here before the camp was liberated by Allied troops in 1945, at the end of World War II.
