BRISBANE GERMAN WEEK | 1 – 16 OCTOBER 2022
Australia’s ‘longest week’ (16 days!) is happening again – refreshed and recharged!
It’s time to look towards Oktober! Finally you can fully immerse yourself again right here in Brisbane and embrace your inner German! We are super excited to bring our German culture to you and cure some of that Heimweh (homesickness). We look forward to celebrating our unified country (1990) and 70 Years of Diplomacy between Australia and Germany with a Concert Reception at the German National Day. Other exciting events this year include the German Movie Night with a pre-movie party, the Science, Innovation and Business Days. A new timely event this year is Language and AI – The Secrets of Bilingualism. But most importantly, our favourite Festival partner is back after two long years: Oktoberfest Brisbane!!!
Our team can’t wait to bring mini Germany to you!
Thanking Trade and Investment Queensland (TIQ) and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) as well as Brisbane City Council for their friendship and support in previous years. Just as much the German Missions in Australia have continuously been supporting this fantastic initiative, the German Embassy in Canberra and the Consulate-General of Germany in Sydney.
Check out our Gallery for some fantastic German Week memories as we update the event details on these pages over the coming days.
A message for Europe at this difficult time…
Most of us have been unable to travel to Europe under the recent restrictions unless it was under (often) heart-wrenching circumstances. In addition we are witnessing tragic events in the Ukraine. Our hearts are with you and your loved ones. We hope and pray that you will make it through this tough time to get back to some form of “normal” on the other side soon.
