Today the pupils arrived in Winter Wonderland. An early morning start had us travelling through the Bavarian countryside to the spectacular Neuschwanstein Castle. Following a guided tour of King Ludwig’s home, we travelled to Partnacklamm Gorge. As the photographs highlight, this is a scenic spot along the Partnach River featuring waterfalls, river rapids & walking paths. The beautiful Garmisch village was a place to enjoy a hot chocolate & a final stroll, which added to our several thousand steps completed today. The group returned to our hotel for a well-deserved evening meal.
STEM TRIP Day 4
AND THAT’S A WRAP…. Our final day began with a sober and haunting visit to Dachau Concentration Camp. A wonderful guide explained the history of the camp between 1933-1945. From this moving and poignant experience we travelled to Eisbachwelle, which is the largest city centre location for river surfing. The waves on the Eisbach river at the entrance to the Englischer Garden attract surfers and onlookers from around the world. There was just enough time for a quick stop at the Olympia-Einkaufszentrum shopping centre before travelling to the airport. The staff would like to take this opportunity to commend our fabulous STEM pupils. At all times, they were respectful, friendly, and trustworthy – a pleasure to escort on this jam-packed trip. #100,000 steps 😳
