Top visits

Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg

Tours of this transmitting station, once used by the Russians, offer a unique insight into Berlin’s past as well as an overview of the workings of the TV and radio studios today. Your students (over 16s only) could very well see the filming of a soap opera, a quiz show, and more.

 

Filmpark Babelsberg

Located on the famous Babelsberg campus – home to the world’s oldest large-scale film studio – this movie theme park features stunt shows, illusion studios, 4D cinema and films. Over 3,000 films have been shot at the here, including Fritz Lang’s Metropolis (1927). The theme park surrounding the studios offers a glance behind-the-scenes with studio tours, exhibitions, costumes and enough action to keep your pupils amused. This visit is guaranteed to immerse pupils into the world of movies.

IMAX Cinema

Groups can visit the fabulous cinema at Potsdamer Platz. Bowling Am Schillerpark This bowling alley is the most popular of four available in Berlin. 

Berlin Film Museum

Take a journey through film history and learn about German cinema from 1895 to 1980. Experience great moments in broadcasting history as well as how the medium of television developed in East and West Germany, then venture through rooms full of famous props, costumes, set-designs and projection screens.

Topography of Terror

This fascinating exhibition is contained within the former cellars of Gestapo HQ, illustrating the terrors and crimes of the Nazi era. The new documentation centre and other exhibitions are presented in both English and German.

Olympic Stadium

Built for the 1936 Olympics, this is an excellent example of Nazi architecture. This is where the black American athlete, Jesse Owens, won four gold medals, supposedly infuriating Hitler because of his race.

Berlin Wall

Here, your pupils will see how East and West Berlin were divided for 28 years. The Bernauerstrasse Memorial allows pupils to see remains of the Berlin Wall as well as an exhibition on Berlin during the Cold War. The East Side Gallery is the longest surviving stretch of the wall and is nearly 1.5km long – and includes the work of various artists and political cartoonists.

TV Tower

Located at the very heart of the city on the Alexanderplatz, the Berlin TV tower is part of German history: in the sixties the East German government had the TV tower built to demonstrate the strength and efficiency of the socialist party system. Today the tower, Berlin’s highest structure, shapes the skyline of the German capital city and has fantastic views - and serves as a landmark of the reunited Germany. Your group can pinpoint the many landmarks and attend the free exhibition.
