School trips to the Netherlands

School trips to the Netherlands

Home to one of Europe’s most liberal and beautiful cities, school trips to the Netherlands offer numerous learning opportunities for students. A country steeped in history, the Netherlands’ capital, Amsterdam boasts some of the best art museums in the world, including the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to name but a few.

As well as the city’s artistic flare, Amsterdam played a pivotal role in the Second World War, offering a poignant insight into what life was like during the Nazi reign. The Anne Frank Museum allows pupils to see first-hand the oppression inflicted during that period, and tours of the Jewish District and the Jewish Historical Museum show the lasting influence the war had on this community.

Educational school trips don’t just help to bring your students’ study topics to life, they offer fantastic opportunities for your pupils to gain independence and experience new cultures. As such, there are also plenty of great cultural excursions to delve into, from exploring the Amsterdam Dungeons to sampling some traditional Dutch cuisine. Some school groups sometimes prefer to be situated outside of Amsterdam, on the beautiful Dutch coast in Noordwijk, which also allows access to places of interest such as Rotterdam and The Hague.
