Chocolate, Dungeons, concerts – a fabulous German trip

Wey Valley students visited the beautiful German city of Hamburg as part of a summer cultural visit.  A major port city, Hamburg is the second largest city in Germany and boasts harbours, many popular attractions and the famous old ‘Altstadt’ and new  ‘ Neustadt’ towns.

Students had the opportunity to visit the old and new towns, as well as the Chocolate Museum, Hamburg dungeons and the Fountain concert at the Planten un Blomen.

Day five of the residential trip included a trip to the city’s model railway - the largest model railway in the world, and one of the most successful permanent exhibitions in Northern Germany.

Miss Claridge, Head of PE and trip organiser said it was another excellent school trip to Germany following the winter Christmas market trip to Cologne earlier in the year.

Miss Claridge added, ‘our students have had a great time – we have visited so many sites across the city including free time for shopping. We have truly embraced the culture of this wonderful European city’.
