Herzlich Willkommen beim Germanic-American Institute!

Welcome to the Germanic-American Institute. We are a Minnesota non-profit whose mission is to foster appreciation and understanding of the culture, language, arts, and ongoing history of the German-speaking peoples through public educational and cultural programs.

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.

The Germanic-American Institute is so much more than Bier und Bratwurst (but we love those too!) From traveling exhibits such as Geniale Dilletanten, language classes for all ages, our own podcast about German language and culture, to a symposium about modern German apprenticeship.
