Thirty-seven Y7 and Y8 boys enjoyed a memorable trip to the beautiful Rhineland and Moselle region of Germany over Easter.
Their action-packed week included a cruise on the River Rhine that stopped at a whole host of towns en-route to St Goarshausen, a visit to Rüdersheim to explore the shops of Drosselgasse followed by an exciting cable-car trip to the Niederwald monument and a trip to the magical Siegfried’s Mechanical Music Museum. The boys’ language skills were put to the test when they filled out quiz-sheets in German while touring the medieval Marksburg Castle. The boys also took in the splendour of Cologne Cathedral and enjoyed free chocolate samples at the city’s Chocolate Museum. A highlight for many was Germany’s number one theme park, Phantasialand, where they enjoyed a roller-coaster day of fun and thrills.
Throughout the week the boys gained a real flavour of German life as they explored, tasted the local cuisine, experienced the culture, tested out their language skills and created memories to last a lifetime!
