See the underground labyrinth of the Paris Catacombs on a school trip to Paris

1. Paris Catacombs, Paris

If you want to add a horrible histories style visit to your school trip to Paris, your students are sure to be blown away by these massive underground ossuaries. The bones of six million people line the walls of a series of creepy tunnels that you're free to navigate through on your tour. Definitely not for the faint of heart but memorable none the less! Speak to us about your school trip to Paris today.

Tour the history and sculptures of the amazing Wieliczka Salt Mines on a school trip to Krakow

2. Wieliczka Salt Mine, Kraków

Take a guided underground tour through this fantastical and frankly eerie disused salt mine on your school trip to Kraków, which is practically an underground city. The fun tour explores all the twists and turns and requires a lot of walking, but it's worth it to marvel at the chandeliers, pools, chapels and statues carved by miners from rock salt.

Halloween crime scene at our Château de la Baudonnière residential centre in Normandy

3. Château de la Baudonnière, Normandy

If you are lucky enough to bring your French trip to Château de la Baudonnière at Halloween you are in for a spook-tacular treat.

As the days shorten, a mysterious mist falls across the Château's enchanted woodland and the bravest school groups can explore the many ghostly spaces and ghoulish scenes around our 19th century château. Our French native animateurs love nothing more than Halloween, and will evoke the spirits of some of the Chateau's previous inhabitants to guarantee a unique and atmospheric stay for your French group.

Don't miss a visit to the abandoned WWI and WWII era bunkers on your school trip to Berlin

4. Underworld Tour, Berlin

The Berlin-Gesundbrunnen railway station hides an intriguing secret beneath its run-of-the-mill exterior, as besides being a working train station, every Sunday visitors can explore the underground labyrinth of abandoned WWI and WWII era bunkers below the station. Don your hard hats and be led deep below Berlin on this chilling tour. Get in touch to find out how we can make your school trip to Berlin a hit.
