Money, Passport, Ticket? - What do you need on excursions and study trips?

Well, there is no patent remedy. What you need to take with you depends on many things. Decisive factors can be, for example, the respective destination country, the type of travel (flight, bus, train, car), the season, changing local conditions, climatic conditions, the duration of the trip, but above all your own personal needs.

We have compiled a checklist and packing list for this purpose, which takes various aspects into account. It includes a total of about 130 items. Of course, you will not always need or have to take into account everything listed there for a trip. However, the compilation may help you to develop a checklist and packing list that is completely individual and tailored to the requirements of your particular trip.
