School Study Visits Belgium, Holland, Netherlands
The Low countries is a term used to describe the area around the Rhine river delta; especially the nations of The Netherlands, Belgium and Luxemburg. It also includes parts of Germany, but we already have a separate page for that. Easily accessible from the UK, with a short hop across the channel via the Eurostar, Eurotunnel or the ferry, a visit from southern England does not involve a long tiring journey; a key consideration for any party leader!
So what makes this part of Europe a great school trip destination?
There are lots of areas of the Curriculum you can study too, with both Belgium and The Netherlands having English as a second language, and French and German being widely spoken too, this area is perfect for combining a language trip with a second subject area, like history, politics or business studies.
Our visit options include a tour of the European Union, which has its headquarters in the Belgian capital, Brussels. A trip to Amsterdam for those wishing to study the golden age of Dutch art, and visit the city's many world-famous museums and galleries. A very moving and educational visit to some of the locations which were fought over during the First World War. And of course the fantastic Christmas markets, which delight and capture the imagination of so many people every year.
