Master Germany Cultural Journey
|Deadline(s):||Enrollment deadline forthcoming|
Germany Cultural Journey
Germany has long been called the land of Dichter und Denker – poets and thinkers. However, contemporary Germany is also the land for travelers and explorers seeking multicultural and dynamic cities, bucolic villages, and pristine nature. Ride a bike along an old airport tarmac in Berlin, travel by solar-powered ferry across an Alpine lake, watch the wind turbines and half-timbered houses whiz by through the window of a high-speed train as part of your German adventure. Get an up-close view of Germany that goes beyond Sauerkraut and Bratwurst.
Custom programs in Germany are ideal not just for German language teachers but also educators in history, STEM, government/civics, and the fine arts.
Cultural Journeys provide deep insight into the history, culture, and natural heritage of our host countries through authentic immersive experiences. Students will explore ancient ruins, sample new foods, and develop valuable leadership skills.

We do everything possible to run safe, engaging, and immersive programs for our travelers, but given the unpredictable nature of international travel we must remain flexible in our planning. Changes to a schedule are uncommon but if inclement weather pushes us off course or an unexpected opportunity arises which travelers are excited about, we reserve the right to adjust programming in the best interest of the group.[table “” not found /]

DEDICATION TO CULTURAL ENGAGEMENT
This was our daughter’s 2nd trip with Walking Tree. In 2016, she took her school’s first trip with Walking Tree to Ecuador, and absolutely loved it. Once again, the Walking Tree representative was excellent. My daughter said Ben really made the trip, and worked hard to keep the group happy. Other positives: communication before the trip, website outline, daily blogs and trip photos. Very professional organization. We feel very secure sending our student out into the world with Walking Tree.
