A slice of Germany in the heart of Brisbane
Southern Queensland is home to over 12,000 Germans and therefore it is no surprise that you hear the language, meet German travellers and see German businesses on a daily basis. Initiated by the Honorary Consul Prof Michael Rosemann after his inauguration in 2016, the Brisbane German Week has soon become a significant event in Brisbane's yearly events calendar!
Supported by the Lord Mayor Graham Quirk, the Brisbane German Week 2017 features a 15 day program covering among others a German language competition, a classical concert, the German Science and Innovation Day, the German Business Day, the 10th Oktoberfest Brisbane and the opening of the world-famous Gerhard Richter exhibition.
This initiative allows all Brisbanites to explore the rich and multifaceted connections between Germany and Australia - and you are presented with the opportunity to be a part of it.
We look forward to sharing everything from our language to our technology, our businesses and our festivals with you!
From 1 - 15 October Brisbane will showcase its educational, scientific, economic, political and cultural connections to Germany in cooperation with schools, universities, businesses and numerous other organisations.
