Learn German at the DANK Haus

Classes offered

The DANK Haus German American Cultural Center offers German language classes for everyone from toddlers and kids to teens and adults.

We offer special programs throughout the year - for example German Theater, German History, Travel German, and German Summercamp - check the home page for upcoming programs.

For those more interested in tasting than talking, we also offer Kulturküche - a German cooking class series.
