Surval students visit Berlin

Posted on: 21st May 2014 | Category: Trips and excursions

Last week fifteen Surval students set out to explore the rich history and culture Berlin has to offer. A walking tour on the first morning gave us a fantastic overview of some of the city's most famous sites such as the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, Checkpoint Charlie, the Holocaust Memorial, the Reichstag and Bebelplatz which we managed to visit on the 71st anniversary of the infamous Nazi book burning. After dining high in the Reichstag Dome and looking out across the city the following day entailed a more sombre and thouhtful visit to the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp. The artists of the group left Berlin inspired after visits to the New National Gallery, the East Side Gallery and the Berlin Cathedral. The trip to Berlin consolidated our historical knowledge of such a dynamic city and it was incredible to experience this history firsthand.  

Below are some thoughts from the students:

Berlin was amazing, we learned many new things and saw emotional monuments like the Wall of Berlin, the Concentration Camp, the Brandenburg Gate, Berlin Cathedral and many more. Berlin is a very beautiful city, it has extraordinary views and I also loved the food. Walking through the city of Berlin was very nice and I had a great time doing it. The people were very nice and most of them had a smile on their faces all day long. I really hope I can go back to Berlin in the future and repeat my experience all over again.

I really liked the trip to Berlin. It was a great few days. It was always my dream to visit a Berlin. When I heard for the first time that there is a Berlin trip, of course I got really excited, and I made my mind up to go to that trip. We had a lot of good excursions. 

The only thing is that it was just a few days, and they went too fast, but we saw lots in those few days. I wish we could spend longer in Berlin.

It was a great trip! I really enjoyed it, and I saw everything that I wanted to see, and it was wonderful. Also all of the dinners were great, and I loved having lunch with my friends and also I liked the free time. Berlin is an amazing place to visit.
