Forty-eight of our Year 10 students were delighted to spend a week experiencing the sights and cultural life of Bavaria in Southern Germany in April.
Highlights included visiting Bayern Munich’s home stadium, the Allianz Arena, as well as the world’s longest castle wall in Burghausen, and the beautiful city of Passau where three rivers merge into one.
The girls greatly admired King Ludwig’s beautiful Herrenchiemsee palace in the middle of the Chiemsee lake, but even this attraction was surpassed by the exciting visit down the Berchtesgaden salt mine by means of the miners’ train and slides.
Many girls also really enjoyed visiting the Lenbachhaus art gallery to see the beautiful works of Munich’s Blue Rider movement, and gained greatly from it.
The girls also really appreciated the opportunity to stay with host families in our small but delightful host town, Mühldorf am Inn, and they enjoyed their opportunities to listen to, and to converse in, the German language and to gain real insights into German culture.
