Brandenburg – the ideal travel destination...

...for your youth group and school trip

Indeed, there are several criteria that make the area around Berlin the first choice destination for youth group and school trips: Brandenburg has an enormous historical abundance, which extends from the time of the Prussian kings and the German emperors, via important locations from the time of World War II and post-war Germany through to the most recent GDR history and to the reunification of Germany.

In addition, with its innumerable lakes and watercourses and its natural landscapes, Brandenburg offers the ideal space for trips by bicycle, canoe or on foot.
Modern adventure worlds like the “Tropical Islands” (swimming pool and rainforest complex), the “Eldorado Westernstadt” in Templin, the Potsdam-“Babelsberg Filmpark”, the 200 km “Flaeming Skate” circuit for cyclists and inline skaters guarantee endless recreation and variety. And last but not least, a trip to the capital Berlin really makes your group trip a perfect one.
