What we're about

Netzwerk Philadelphia's mission is to make the Philadelphia region a welcoming home to German-speakers of all backgrounds, a destination and resource for German-speaking visitors and businesses, and a forum for dialogue between the United States and Europe.

We currently hold weekly, informal get-togethers for German conversation, host frequent special events and celebrations for both German and English speakers, and promote relevant events and resources in the region. Our web site hosts our calendar and provides a way to announce events and for members to communicate with each other on-line.

Center City Brunch

Corner Bakery Cafe

Jeden Samstag ab 12:00 Uhr mittags geht's los: Es treffen sich eine interessante Mischung aus Europäern, Amerikanern, und deutschsprachigen Auslaendern aller Arten, um Kaffee/Tee zu trinken, Brunch zu essen, und alles moegliche auf deutsch zu diskutieren. Speakers range from intermediate to fluent, including many native German-speakers. Join us! We meet in the Corner Cafe across the street from the Comcast Building, seated at the tables by the windows facing 17th Street. Look for us there. If you are on time and can't find anyone, you are probably the first one there. Take a seat at one of the tables and wait for the others. Typically, 8-15 people attend Center City Brunch. The amerikanische "Du" rule is always in effect - das heisst everyone here is on a first name basis, and may be addressed as "Du" rather than as "Sie." Please note that the number of RSVPs shown here on Meetup.com or Facebook rarely reflects the number of people actually attending :)

Doylestown Stammtisch

Online event

If you have Nutella in your closet and speak German then you have found the right site! Doylestown hat jetzt seinen eigenen Stammtisch. Wir sind eine gemischte Gruppe aus Deutschen/Amerikanern, die es geniessen, auf Deutsch miteinander zu schwaetzen. Get together with local people who are interested in speaking German. Freshen up your German in a fun way, by having informal conversations with friendly people. For those new to the Stammtisch experience, no worries. Stammtisch is open to anyone at any level of proficiency in German. The point is informal conversation in a relaxed atmosphere with native and non-native speakers. To facilitate this, the amerikanische "du" rule is always in effect. That is, everyone is on a first-name basis and addresses one another with the informal "du", rather than "Sie," in order remove any anxieties or misunderstandings that may come up. This event is free - pay only for what you order. Please be prepared to pay with cash, as often it is not an option to get separate checks. Should that be the case, please be vigilant of what you order and how much you leave for tip, so that others aren't left paying more than necessary. If you can't find us, ask the staff and they should be able to direct you. Stammtisch is a very informal event: people come and go when they wish. If you arrive and no one is there, you may just be the first person to arrive. Have a seat and hang out for a bit!
