Gritty, glamourous and never boring, Berlin bursts with creativity and the King’s annual Sixth Form German Study Trip was enjoyed by all. The hotel, used as a film set in ‘Emil and the Detectives,’ placed the group in the heart of 1920s Berlin, just a short U-Bahn ride away from Prussian palaces, a Stasi prison or a boat trip on the River Spree to see cutting edge architecture.
Whilst the twentieth century reduced much of Berlin to rubble, there are still pockets where history endures and they engaged fully with the dynamic cultural and historical landscapes of Berlin. This included sampling gastro classics such as Bratwurst, or ice cream. Berlin continues to mesmerize and the Germanists will have enduring memories of their time there.
