Among the planned, extra-curricular activities are weekend or day trips to Berlin and Nürnberg, including guided tours of museums and other highlights of these cities' cultural treasurers. Exploring Munich and Bavaria's rich heritage and beauty is accomplished through visits of world class museums, stellar theater performances, visits of world renowned heritage sites, such as castle Neuschwanstein.
We will pay homage to victims of Nazi Germany. A visit to the concentration camp Dachau and an introduction to the student resistance movement known as "Die Weisse Rose", which originated at LMU in the 1940's, will honor those, who fell victim to that murderous regime.
While there are many worthwhile activities to keep students occupied in Munich, some students will want to travel to other destinations in Europe. Students will have an opportunity to travel on free weekends with others from the program. In the past, students have visited places like London, Paris, Rome, Barcelona, Brussels, Prague, to mention just a few. Students can also stay in Germany and experience other great cities!
