Memorable Trip to Berlin for German GCSE Students


Students in front of the iconic Brandenburger Tor with their teacher Mrs Davidson.

Although only in Berlin for 4 days, 21, Year 11 students who are studying German to GCSE had a full range of experiences including a very emotional visit to Sachsenhausen concentration camp (pictured below) situated just outside Berlin and a berlin-2visit to a former Stasi prison Berlin Hohenschoenhausen  in East Berlin where a former political prisoner described his day to day life there.  It was the same prison used in the film about the Stasi ‘ The lives of others’.

On a lighter note, the students enjoyed shopping time on the Ku’damm – Berlin’s equivalent of Oxford Street, a boat trip on the River Spree and a bowling evening on the ‘Alex’ – Alexanderplatz.  The students have also become experts on Berlin’s S-Bahn,  U-Bahn,  and Strassenbahn (urban railway, underground and tram)!

A truly memorable few days!
