The most popular class trips to each of the main ASTUR destinations

Class trip East Germany
Untouched landscapes, baffling rock formations and mysterious lakes - this region is the prime address for all fans of pristine nature. Furthermore, East Germany is famous nationwide for music, literature and architecture. Finally, you can take the most exciting adventure hikes, through the Elbe Sandstone Mountains and go rock climbing there. If we had to name one underestimated part of Germany, it would definitely be East Germany!
Class trip Munich
What is the first thing that comes to your head, when thinking about Bavaria and Munich? Fairy tale castles, snow-covered mountain tops. lederhosen? Exactly! However, Bavaria has so much more to offer. Those Bavarian renaissance palaces, which emanate a strong fairy tale atmosphere, are fantastic sights, but so is the modern architecture in Munich's city centre. From urban to rural areas, trips into nature, visits of castles or science workshops: Munich has a variety of exciting activities in store for you.
Class trip Berlin
Trips to Germany's capital Berlin count among our most popular programmes. Berlin proves herself an excellent teacher of lessons drawn from historical events. In contrast to the very heavy topics dealing with our past, Berlin is also very good at entertainment and excitement. Today Germany's capital buzzes with cosmopolitan flair.
Class trip Freiburg
Group travel programmes to South West Germany are particularly popular among our international guests. The mild weather and untouched environment spread fantastic holiday feeling! All participants of ASTUR group travels tend to fall in love with the southwestern charm!
Class trip Cologne/Bonn
The so-called Rhineland in the West of Germany is a lively region. Its people - especially in the cosmopolitan hubs of Cologne, Bonn and Mönchengladbach - are open-minded, tolerant and welcome their guests with open arms. The arts, history and architecture are cultural features characterising the Rhineland.
Class trip Rhenish-Hesse
What is unique about Rhenish-Hesse is the spectacular Rhine Gorge. You find majestic forests and hills on both river banks, where numerous castles and towers are located. The valley stretches between the towns of Mainz and Bonn. Here you can discover nature and German history hands-on. Take ancient myths for example. In the area you can climb Loreley Rock or delve into the Nibelungen saga.
Class Trip North Germany
The North of Germany is a diverse region within the ASTUR network: On the one hand there are the magnificent Hanseatic towns Lübeck and Lüneburg with their idyllic, medieval town centres. On the other hand there are the busy, modern cities Hamburg and Bremen. On the one hand the beautiful Lüneburg Heath is waiting to be discovered, on the other hand, Hannover and Detmold welcome you with ancient German fairy tales and contemporary trade fares or art.
