Deutsches Haus at NYU (42 Washington Mews, New York, N.Y.) is delighted to invite you to the annual HAUS-FEST to celebrate our 39th year as New York City’s leading German language school. At HAUS-FEST on Thursday, September 8, you can meet our teachers and take a trial class; find out about our language program and special classes of our upcoming fall term; take a quick placement exam to find out which class is the best fit for you and register for it; and get our Deutsches Haus DER bags for free!

And last but not least: One lucky person will be the winner of a complimentary German language class at Deutsches Haus at NYU.

In addition, the Consulates General of Austria, Germany, and Switzerland, and CityKinder will be present with informational booths.

Haus-Fest will also highlight the wines of the Burgenland, one of the four major wine growing regions of Austria, and feature a sample tasting with Sweet & Salzig.

To round out Haus-Fest, Deutsches Haus presents a free concert in our beautiful courtyard by Timo Vollbrecht (saxophone) and Kenji Herbert (electric guitar). Refreshments will be served.
