Stammtisch (Traditional German Exchange Meetings)

  • Do you enjoy spending time talking with friends?
  • Are you interested in testing your German skills outside the classroom?
  • Would you like to expand your vocabulary in your foreign language in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere?

Then take a chance and experience the German Stammtisch tradition. The word Stammtisch describes a cheerful gathering in a pub where a group of friends converse over drinks. In this way, you can quickly engage in conversation and practice your language skills in a relaxed setting.

Stammtisch events are organised for various languages by students, language instructors and volunteers. Once a week, German and international students talk with one another in English or Spanish about whatever topics that interest them.

  • English Stammtisch: every Thursday at 7.00 pm at the Schwarzburger Hof, Erfurter Straße 3. Contact person: Howard Atkinson (howard.atkinson[at]
