Förderprojekte » The Trip to London
From the 6th to the 10 of December 2012 most of the 12 graders went accompanied by 4 teachers
to London. Aim of this trip was to improve our ability to talk English and to find our way around in a
foreign city. Every day we got spend there should describe in the London diary we had to make.
Most of the time we were allowed to discover the city in little groups by ourselves, but we also
met and explored the city as a huge group, as visiting Somerset House and watching the Londoner
ice-skating. We attended a service in Westminster Abbey and a concert of an organ in St Paul’s
Cathedral, being impressed by the old buildings full of history and believes. We were visiting the
Globe Theatre and took a journey in the London of Shakespeare’s times. We explored Camden
Markets, shopping like the Londoner, bargaining and eating ourselves around the world, being
impressed by so many different noises, colors, smells …. We also took a guided tour from Houses of
Parliaments to Trafalgar Square. Some of us swear to have seen the Queen herself on that occasion.
The Metro tickets were the key to all those adventures. We started in the morning meeting during
the day and being back at the hostel late in the evening, tiredly chatting with our roommates.
During our stay we had to visit at least one church, four museums, one park and one special historical
building. I myself especially liked the “Stables Markets” in Camden Town where I even found and
bought the dress for the Abiball.
All in all, I can recommend the trip to London, especially in Christmas Time. It is such a beautiful city
with lots of friendly people helping you finding your way around. We thank the Förderverein for the
financial support, which made this trip not only affordable but unique through special events we
