Membership Benefits

The Spirit of “Gemütlichkeit”

As a member of Deutsches Haus, you and a guest will have free admission to all Haus sponsored events, such as Oktoberfest (12 Free tickets w/membership), Volksfest, Fasching (Carnival celebration), and other events as scheduled. You can rent Deutsches Haus facilities at a discounted rate after 2 years.  You also will have discounted admission to sponsored events such as concerts, wine tastings, and dinners as well as German language classes.

After you have been an Associate member for two years, you can apply for Active/Stockholder membership and thus become an “owner” of Deutsches Haus. You will have voting privileges and thus have a voice in the leadership of Deutsches Haus. After 2 years as an Active member you can run for the Board of Directors and provide guidance and leadership to your Haus.

Your support of Deutsches Haus helps to celebrate and foster the rich culture, musical heritage, language, and history of the German people. Deutsches Haus is a great place to stop in with friends/family for the coldest German beer in town.
