The program includes a five-day excursion to Munich, Stuttgart and Southern Germany during which students visit Neuschwanstein castle; the Deutsches Museum, the world’s largest technology museum; the Mercedes-Benz Museum; and leading German firms (e.g., BMW, Porsche and Mercedes-Benz have been factory visits in previous years)/research institutes. While in Munich, students will have some free time to explore the city and its surroundings; in the 2010 & 2011 programs several students visited Dachau, a former concentration camp.
In addition, there will be several daylong excursions and company visits that are part of the courses, including a Rhine cruise, a visit to Cologne, art-course museum tours and activities, and a three-country trip including Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands in one day.
