Herzlich Willkommen

ADELAIDE GERMAN WEEK | 20 – 26 November 2023

Adelaide’s annual German Week is coming!

In November 2023 you can once again fully immerse yourself right here in Adelaide and embrace your inner German! Whether you have family ties, are an expat or are a Wahldeutsche/r, we are super excited to bring a new taste of German culture to you and cure some of that Heimweh (homesickness).  We look forward to continuing to celebrate relationships between South Australia and Germany and offering a variety of events.

Enjoy a variety of events ranging from our celebratory Eröffnungsfeier, the famous Kochabend (Flammkuchen MasterClass), to our Science, Business and Innovation Day and a classical piano concert in the Barossa Valley.

Our team can’t wait to bring mini Germany to you!

Thanking all current and prospective sponsors for their friendship and support. We also especially thank the German Embassy in Canberra and the Government of South Australia for their help with this fantastic initiative.

We are also delighted to have the support of our ‘big sister’ event the Brisbane German Week (October) Please also explore their program.

Stay up to date with us on social media as we reveal more information about this year’s upcoming program.
