Not the ‘Wurst’ Time in Berlin
15 students from the City of Stoke-on-Trent Sixth Form College experienced three days exploring Germany’s Capital City, Berlin.
Taking in the culture and architecture, the students used the trip as a way to enhance their German speaking skills.
The students visited famous landmarks like Checkpoint Charlie – An iconic border boundary crossing during the Cold War which acted as a territorial and Political divide as well as spending time visiting the Topography of Terror; former headquarters of the Gestapo which, following the Second World War was converted into an exhibition that remains to this day one of the most popular museums in Berlin.
Whilst in Berlin, the globetrotters checked in at many iconic sights including the TV Tower in Alexanderplatz, Brandenburg Gate and finally the Dome of the Reichstag Building. Whilst away, the intrepid tourists sampled many local cuisine, including authentic Currywurst dishes, which, the students concluded was not the ‘wurst’, but in fact a rather favourable dish.
The City of Stoke-on-Trent Sixth Form College provides many international enrichment opportunities for all students, including visits to Poland, Gambia and Washington
