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 sponsor of the Twin Cities German Immersion School, a public charter located in St.Paul, serving children in kindergarten through 8th grade.

Thank you to everyone who made St. Paul Oktoberfest a wonderful celebration of culture and community for all ages!
