Our School Trips to Amsterdam
As the capital of the Netherlands, Amsterdam is one of the most beautiful and exciting cities in the world. With its abundance of things to do and its proximity to the UK, Amsterdam is a tremendous choice for teachers when choosing a school trip destination. A school trip to Amsterdam can entail tons of historical and cultural learning experiences, as well as a great deal of fun. As well as being famous for its canals and Rembrandts, there is plenty to explore in the beautiful and historic city of Amsterdam. It is a city of art, music and history!
A school trip to Amsterdam with Voyager School Travel will give your students the opportunity to visit world famous attractions and museums. Located in the city centre, Anne Frank's House is an extremely popular and moving excursion which will teach your students the story of the young Jewish girl who was hiding from the Germans during World War II. This excursion is perfect for History students focusing on the war and fascism, but is additionally a must see and eye opener for everyone.
Amsterdam is home to a variety of famous art museums and galleries such as the Van Gogh museum and The Rijksmuseum. In addition, the Van Moppes Diamond Factory was the first factory to open its doors to the public. A tour of one of the busiest and oldest diamond factories in Amsterdam will show how master craftsmen have been making exquisite works of art for over 170 years.
The Heineken factory is also worth a visit. The Dutch don't think of it so much as a factory than as an 'experience' and so it is often dubbed 'The Heineken Experience.' Multimedia exhibitions allow guests to see, hear, smell, taste and enjoy all of Heineken's delights. The tour is finished off with a well-deserved beer, only for those lucky students (and teachers) over the age of 18, of course! Once you've seen the sights, take a boat trip or walk along the canals and admire the elegant Dutch architecture that lines canals and streets alike.
