Germans of St. Paul Bus Tour: With Local Historian, Dave Bredemus

Bus departs from the GAI:
301 Summit Avenue

Tickets: $20 - includes Bus Tour and 
Kaffee & Kuchen (coffee & cake)

Twenty percent of people in the US are of German descent, and in St. Paul, Germans are the largest ethnic group. Because of a variety of factors, including prejudice, world wars, prohibition, and labor organizing efforts, the German people of St. Paul have lost much of their history. Learn where the Germans had their quarries, breweries, cigar factories, beer gardens, neighborhoods, churches, and social clubs. See the influence of German architecture, especially the use of brick for building.

This tour will visit Uppertown, West 7th, Dayton's Bluff, Westside, Frogtown, and Rice Street, including stops at the first brewery, the first, German hall, and oldest German social club. Participants will be served Kaffee & Kuchen (coffee & cake) at the GAI at 11:30am, with the tour departing at 12pm. Space is limited and pre-registration is required. 

Bus Tour is SOLD OUT!
