The American Community
Make new friends and enjoy the company of old ones: The American Club is the first port of call for both Americans and the international community in Hamburg and Northern Germany.
(Re-)connect with old and new friends
Hamburg is a great place to meet up with old friends. Not only is it a beautiful city with much to offer. As the home to the German headquarters of Linked-in, Xing, Facebook and Google, it is also possibly the most personally and socially networked city on the Continent.
Where else will you have the opportunity to meet at both formal occasions and relaxed get-togethers friends and well-known personalities such as Germany’s leading journalists Tom Buhrow and Klaus Kleber, the President of the Kiel Institute of World Economy, Dennis Snower, or the Director of the Hamburg Ballet, John Neumeier and of course, US Ambassador to Germany.
Children welcome here
At the American Club, we have a number of family-events like our traditional Thanksgiving Dinner or our party for the Independence Day. Also we meet at the Christmas Market every year for some Glühwein (also "ohne Schuß"). We are also always open for suggestions and initiatives and fresh ideas!
Pay less for Events
A lot of our events come with catering - sometimes finger-food, sometimes a set dinner with fine wines, for instance at the dinner speeches. We pass some of the expense on to our participating members, but the price for them is usually way below cost. Also, we use the event-management-platform Eventbrite to manage our Events and give a range of payment options. We cover the fees for Eventbrite for our members, too. So when you join many events, your membership will pay for itself.
