 “Students look forward to this event year after year,” German teacher Christine Moll said. 

The Liederkranz is a trip that the German Club runs every year. This trip gives students a chance to experience an accurate German meal. This allows them to have a cultural experience that they would not otherwise have. 

This annual trip took place on 12 November 2019. The German club tends to run the trip around the same time every year. They have been doing this since 2012. 

“On my very first day in Fleetwood, back in 2012, my first period German III class asked me, ‘Are you going to take us to the Liederkranz,’” Moll said. 

The Liederkranz provides a wide range of food for the students to enjoy.

“They served an all-you-can-eat buffet with Bratwurst (sausage), Wiener Schnitzel (cutlets; real Wiener Schnitzel is made with veal–these were made with pork), Gulasch (goulash/meat in gravy), Nudeln (noodles), [and] Kartoffelsalat (potato salad),” Moll said. 

Many students only have good reviews for the food they ate.

“I liked the sausage and the pork the best. I had never had anything like that before,” Alopay Heltzinger, ninth grade German Club student, said. 

Students interested in experiencing new cultures can join German club for such opportunities. Students can also meet people with similar interests as them. 

Students involved in German club can get a variety of cool experiences, such as meeting a German exchange student. Moll highly recommends joining the club.
