Class trip to the North of 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. North Germany truly has a lot in store for everybody.
