We had an excellent trip - excellent flights and accommodation.

We have had three previous very successful trips organised by StudyTrips. I have always found them to be friendly and accommodating.

Enhance your trip

  • Constructed in the late 19th century and designed by Norman Foster, the fame of the Reichstag building attracts thousands of visitors each year – not only due to its eye-catching design, but also the significant role it has played in Germany’s political history.
  • As one of the largest Jewish Museums in Europe, Berlin’s Jewish Museum designed by Daniel Libeskind is home to countless collections and exhibitions documenting German-Jewish history of past decades.
  • This prestigious Concert Hall is famous around the world not only for its stunning architecture, but also the top class acoustics within. The building designed by Hans Scharoun has brought warmth and heart to the former west side of the Berlin wall that was deprived for many years.
  • Designed by L.M van der Rohe and erected in 1968, the New National Gallery is home to a diverse collection of 20th century art. Don’t forget to go for a stroll around the beautiful sculpture gardens too!
  • For incredible 360-degree views of Berlin in all its glory there is only one place to go- the infamous Berlin TV tower! From well over 200 metres up you can gain a totally different perspective on the stunning landmarks and attractions that make the city so special.
  • The Bauhaus Museum is a tribute to Bauhaus Art and Design School, which was one of the most influential schools of the 20th century. Displaying hundreds of pieces of art from past decades, this museum is a fascinating visit for all.
  • Built in the early 20th century, the Pergamon Museum is the most visited art museum in Germany – and for good reason! For decades its collections and exhibitions have thrilled and educated people of all ages.
