Students Explore the Black ForestPosted on: May 16th 2018
Year 8 and 9 German students spent a sunny few days in the Black Forest in Germany in April. With amazingly good weather, they enjoyed exploring the sights that the area has to offer and spent a lot of time enjoying the outdoors. After a very long bus journey, the first day was spent in the beautiful town of Esslingen, with a tour from pupils from our German partner school and an opportunity to practice buying ice creams in German! The second day saw many of us face our fears with a trip on the Schaunisland cable car, which took us to 1284m above sea level on the longest loop cable car in Germany. The panoramic scenery was spectacular. We enjoyed lunch by the picturesque Lake Titisee and spent the afternoon exploring the huge waterfall in Triberg and learning more about the history of life in the Black Forest. Our final day in the sun involved a trip to Europapark where we explored the different countries of Europe and braved some huge roller coasters! All in all, a fabulous trip made all the more enjoyable by the wonderful students we took with us.
