Herzlich Willkommen beim Germanic-American Institute!

Connecting people to a broader world through German language and culture.

The GAI is a co-founder and sponsor of the Twin Cities German Immersion School, a public charter located in St.Paul, serving children in kindergarten through 8th grade.

Virtual Musik im Mai
Since we can’t come together in-person this year to celebrate the GAI’s annual Musik im Mai concert series, our team has put together some suggestions for great listening at home. Details here

Deutsche Tage 2020—a new kind of celebration!
We are happy to announce that the GAI’s popular summer festival, Deutsche Tage, will be held as a new kind of celebration this year – with the theme “Celebrate What Unites Us.”  Monday, June 8 through Saturday, June 13, Deutsche Tage activities will include an on-your-own Fahrradtour (bicycle tour), a Hier and There Podcast Live event, a special “kit” to create your own Deutsche Tage Haus party, and more!  

As St. Paul’s longest-running ethnic festival, we are excited to uphold our tradition of celebration while coming together to help local businesses and bring joy to our neighbors near and far. Join us virtually this year and connect with some of the GAI’s best-loved programs and traditions: lifelong German language learning, Germanic culture and food, and summer fun activities for all ages. Details coming soon on our website and social media!
