German Museum of Technology
One of the largest museums in Europe, the German Technology Museum is an interactive venue for learning and hands-on experiencing, with exhibitions on practically all branches of technology and transport, including traffic, communications, production and energy technology, sea navigation, space and aeronautics. Student groups can also benefit from a themed guided tour – themes include People & Technology, Technology & War and Technology & Art.
Located at the very heart of the city on the Alexanderplatz, the Berlin TV tower is part of German history: in the sixties the East German government had the TV tower built to demonstrate the strength and efficiency of the socialist party system. Today the tower, Berlin’s highest structure, shapes the skyline of the German capital city and has fantastic views - and serves as a landmark of the reunited Germany. Your group can pinpoint the many landmarks and attend the free exhibition.
A prime example of the new, vibrant Berlin. Students can practise their language skills in the numerous shops, cafés, restaurants and the fabulous Sony Centre at this lively public square, once one of the busiest intersections in Europe.
Berlin River Cruise
Take a cruise along the River Spree on this tour and see all the major attractions of the city while learning about the intriguing history of Berlin.
Built for the 1936 Olympics, this is an excellent example of Nazi architecture. This is where the black American athlete, Jesse Owens, won four gold medals, supposedly infuriating Hitler because of his race.
The large indoor market in the centre of the city is an ideal place to put language skills to the test and pick up a bargain or two.
Guided Tour of Berlin
Our City Representative, or one of her team, will take your group on a half-day tour of the key sights and provide a first-hand perspective of Berlin’s history and how life has changed for the city’s residents.
- Berlin Wall: Students will see how East and West Berlin were divided for 28 years. Potsdamer Platz and the East Side Gallery are two of the remaining areas where it is still accessible to see a section of the wall.
- The Reichstag: This impressive building, perhaps most recognisable due to its impressive glass dome, re-opened as the new seat of Federal Parliament in 1999. Here, students can learn about the building’s turbulent 114-year history.
- The Brandenburg Gate: Berlin’s only remaining city gate and a symbol of unified Germany. The dramatic Quadriga that sits on top has a history as eventful as the city’s.
Groups can visit the fabulous cinema at Potsdamer Platz. Bowling Am Schillerpark. This bowling alley is the most popular of four available in Berlin.

Tropical Islands Water Park
This indoor tropical beach, which lies outside of the city, is home to water slides, lagoons and miniature golf, as well as the world’s largest indoor rainforest.
Computer Spiele Museum
The first ever museum for computer games in the world was opened in Berlin in 1997. The exhibition “Computer Games. The evolution of a medium” comprises some 300 objects illustrating their cultural history. Thanks to many interactive exhibits and scenic reconstructions of typical environments such as a video arcade from the 1980s you can re-experience this historical development spanning across more than six decades, quite a long time. A small, but finely stocked museum shop complements our services with more than 170 different objects as well as clothing items and literature all relating to games culture.
Game Science Center
The Game Science Center is a small, interactive museum, run by a team of game developers. Students can learn about and try out futuristic ways to interact with computers. Groups will have a great time controlling games with their eyes, through movement and more.
BMW Motorcycle Plant
Take a guided tour through the birth place of BMW motorcycles. Experience the fascination of a highly modern vehicle production, where man and machine build two-wheeled dreams! Experts are happy to answer your questions.
The Science Centre
Ideally located between Potsdamer Platz and the Brandenburg Gate, the Ottobock Science Center houses the exhibition “Understanding what makes us move” over three floors.
