Herzlich Willkommen beim Germanic-American Institute!

Welcome to the Germanic-American Institute. We are a Minnesota non-profit whose mission is to foster appreciation and understanding of the culture, language, arts, and ongoing history of the German speaking peoples through public educational and cultural programs.

The GAI is a co-founder and authorizer of the Twin Cities German Immersion School, a public charter located in St.Paul, serving children in kindergarten through 8th grade.

Our deepest thanks to the following foundations for their financial support of the GAI for 2016-2017:
