School Trips - Combined Languages-Strasbourg & Black Forest tours
As the home of the European Parliament, Strasbourg is at the heart of Europe. Many people visit the city to learn about the European institutions, but Strasbourg, Alsace and the neighbouring part of Germany have so much more to offer.
The parliament buildings can be visited and this is best organised by contacting one of your local members of the European Parliament. Once you have been given the dates for your visit we will be happy to help you organise the rest of your stay.
Strasbourg itself is an interesting and attractive city with both French and German aspects. For schools that find it difficult or impractical to organise visits for both the French and German departments, Strasbourg offers the opportunity to take just one visit for students of both languages. Such a visit can offer a wider experience of two cultures yet give both groups of students a chance to use and experience the language they have chosen to study, whilst at the same time becoming aware of the benefits of wider language skills in a European context.
Beyond the city are the attractions of the Vosges Mountains and the Alsatian wine route with attractive market towns such as Obernai. The city of Colmar has attractive architecture and a delightful network of picturesque canals. Further south, Mullhouse is the home of the world famous Schlumpf motor collection and the French National Railway Museum.
East of the Rhine are the German cities of Offenburg and Freiburg and the delights of the Black Forest, with a visit to Titisee well worthwhile to see the cuckoo clocks being made and to take a trip on the lake. If you’re looking for something a little more adventurous, EUROPAPARK is a high quality theme park just inside Germany.
