Munich and Bavaria
The UK is ideally located close to so many wonderful European countries that you do not have to travel far to feel like you are really away from home. Munich, the capital of Bavaria is one place that will get students motivated, excited and ready to learn more. Today the city has a modern feel and a vibrant atmosphere but once up a time it was subject to some terrible atrocities. The Dachau Concentration Camp is located in the city and students can visit to get a real insight into what life was like in the city during those tumultuous times. People from the camps were tortured in the most horrific ways and used as forced labour for the German ammunition processing plants. Times have thankfully changed and leaving the Concentration Camp behind students will be enveloped in a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
For an artistic tour of the city visit the Pinakotheks, which house a wonderful exhibition of art that ranges from German romanticism to paintings and graphic design. The world famous BMW has a fascinating museum in Munich and a visit here gives students the chance to appreciate the incredible technology and the innovative ideas involved in producing the BMW machines.
Munich is close to the lower slopes of the Alps where many of Germany’s finest fairy tale castles were built. The Scholss Neuschwanstein is one such castle and when you see it in all its glory it is easy to understand why it was the inspiration for the Sleeping Beauty Castle in Disneyland.
There is much more to see in the city of Munich, and no matter what your subject of focus there is so much to do on a trip to this beautiful capital of Bavaria.
