Even though your adventure starts in Berlin, our field trips take you beyond the city to discover the culture and traditions of your host country. These trips are subsidized by IES Abroad, though extra costs may apply. Past destinations have included:
2 days | Fall & Spring
Visit the Saxon capital which is called “the Florence of the North,” and see the Zwinger palace, the Baroque Königsstrasse, the Frauenkirche, and museums full of countless art treasures.
This program also includes one course-related trip per semester, which allows you to learn first-hand about the challenges facing dynamic cities such as St. Petersburg, Russia and Paris, France. Course-related trips are required, integral academic components of this program, and include activities and assignments that are specifically related to the courses that you are taking in Berlin. Most costs of the course-related trips are included in the IES Abroad program fee.
St. Petersburg, Russia
7 days | Spring
Tour St. Petersburg, visit the Hermitage Museum, attend a ballet performance at Mariinsky Theater, explore the architecture of Basil Island, and meet with Russian university students and faculty.
7 days | Fall
See Paris in a new way on tours of neighborhoods such as the Marais and Belleville, on visits to a mosque and the catacombs, and on a boat trip on the Seine. You may also visit some of Paris’s museums, such as the Louvre, and the palace and grounds of the Sun King at Versailles.
