A school trip to Munich or Frankfurt by air will be less costly than you might think and will increase the number of days you can spend in the city

Whether you are taking students to Frankfurt (the business and financial centre of Germany) or Munich (famous for its culture, and particularly its architecture), the journey is going to be a lot swifter and a lot easier if you travel direct by air.

Of course, once you are in Frankfurt you will see everything from avant garde skyscrapers to museums and from theatres to the financial centre.

In Munich you will be again be noting the architecture, along with a cultural scene and museums that are at the very least equal to those of Berlin, not to mention the world class technology and science museums like the Deutsches Museum and BMW Museum.

Increasingly school trips to both cities are being taken by air for the two simple reasons that air trips are quicker than coach and ferry and, in many cases, are less expensive.

Thus the amount of time spent in the city of your choice increases dramatically for school parties going by air with the journey completed in a couple of hours.

In fact, given that it is normally possible to fly from an airport near your school to either of these German cities, such arrangements can add up to three more days spent in the desired destination rather than on the road and at sea.

Additionally you can choose the price range, and you can choose the hotel that is right for you – near the airport or within the city or region that is your final destination – rather than take the one selected by the tour operator.
