ABOUT

The Cambridge University German Society was founded in 1908 (or earlier). We aim to promote interest in German culture and language, through providing a platform as well as organising events for native speakers and language students alike.  We regularly organise pub meetings (Stammtisch) and different speaker events, as well as the annual Oktoberfest. Former speakers include Bundestagspräsident Norbert Lammert, Gregor Gysi, and Karl Lauterbach.
To find out more, check out our Termcard and come along to one of our events! The CUGS welcomes members of all nationalities. We highly value intercultural exchange and therefore particularly appreciate non-German members. For individuals interested in Germany, our society is an ideal opportunity to delve into German culture within our cultural events and – last but not least – to make German friends.
