The West Point German Club promotes German language and culture in the Corps of Cadets and the West Point Community. The club actively participates in German-American cultural events in the region, to include the German-American Steuben Parades in Philadelphia and New York, Volksmarches, the MWR Oktoberfest at the West Point Club, visits to local German restaurants, and an annual trip to Washington, DC, where we meet with the Defense Attaché Staffs of the German, Austrian, and Swiss Embassies. Members of the club meet regularly for a Wednesday night Stammtisch at the Cadet Mess, where Cadets, Instructors, and other German-speaking members of the West Point Community get together and speak German over dinner. In addition to speaking practice, it gives cadets an opportunity to talk about German culture and also what it’s like to be assigned as an officer in Germany.
