German American Institute

This August, Alliance Française is proud to partner with the German American Institute GAI to bring you a cross-cultural Biergarten night Abend im Alsace at the GAI Lawn. Alsace (spelled Elsass in German) is a historical region in northeastern France on the Rhine River plain. Bordering Germany and Switzerland, it has alternated between German and French control over the centuries and reflects a mix of those cultures. Its capital, Strasbourg, is centered on the Ill River’s Grand Île Island, bordered by canals and home to the Gothic Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Strasbourg, with its animated astronomical clock.

Friday, August 11, 6 to 9 pm

(Food served à la carte until 8pm)

Free Admission

At the Abend im Alsace, you can try some Flammkuchen (Alsatian pizza) or Alsatian Schnitzel while enjoying the warm, summer evening on our beautiful grounds. Sip on French wine or a German beer while listening to traditional French-Alsatian folk music by Philippe Gallandat and Juan Kuffner.
