Joint HMSG and Monmouth School Visit to BerlinApril 24th, 2015
This was a most enjoyable and successful visit for our twenty-five Year 10 and Sixth Form pupils. The sun shone throughout and we were able to tour the main attractions, including the Brandenburg Gate, the Museumsinsel, the Holocaust Memorial, and Checkpoint Charlie, with ease. Highlights included the Reichstag and Kuppel at night, a river cruise on the Spree, a reflective visit to the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp and an in-depth Cold War tour of Berlin, featuring escape routes over the Wall and the underground ghost stations . Pupils were responsive to the culture of this fascinating city, confident to try out their German and appreciative of its main culinary offering, the Currywurst!
