Herzlich Willkommen

ADELAIDE GERMAN WEEK | 13 – 22 September 2024

Adelaide’s annual German Week is returning once again!

In September 2024 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.

We are also delighted to have the support of our ‘big sister’ event the Brisbane German Week and seen the organisation of German Weeks in Canberra and Melbourne! Please also explore their programs.

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