During the half-term, 14 Removes and Lower School pupils travelled to Munich for a four day tour of the city to immerse themselves in German culture and language. On the first day, pupils enjoyed a fascinating walking tour of the city, followed by a visit to the renowned Viktualienmarkt, where they carried out a survey in order to practise their spoken German with kind market-goers.
After a lovely evening walk and frisbee session in the beautiful Englischer Garten, the group headed to a traditional German restaurant for some delicious Käsepätzle and were wowed by surfers on the river on their way!
The following day, it was time for a unique morning German lesson on a sunny terrace where the pupils talked through the findings from their survey at the market. In the afternoon they made their way to the Allianz Arena to visit Bayern Munich’s stadium.
The group especially enjoyed the tour, knowing that Bayern had won the German league the day before! That night, pupils enjoyed a very topical quiz with rounds including ‘Munich’, ‘Germany’ and ‘The German language’.
The final day was a busy one, setting off first for Dachau, an incredibly moving place to visit and one that provided many opportunities for reflection. The group then ended the tour with a visit to the beautiful Nymphenburg palace. It was a wonderful trip, with beautiful weather to boot!
