Freundeskreis Membership

Freundeskreis AmerikaHaus NRW e.V.

In Spring 2011, the Freundeskreis (circle of friends) AmerikaHaus  NRW e. V. emerged from the richly traditional German-American association Steuben-Schurz e.V., Düsseldorf. Its aim is to foster and help shape the transatlantic dialogue.

The purpose of the Freundeskreis is to support mutual international understanding and tolerance in all cultural areas. By working closely together with AmerikaHaus  NRW e. V., interpersonal, cultural, and economic relations between Germans and Americans are maintained and deepened. 

Through participation in exclusive events on politics, business, culture, and education the Freundeskreis AmerikaHaus  NRW e. V.  offers its members the opportunity to actively shape the German-American dialogue.

Members not only receive special invitations to the events of the AmerikaHaus  NRW e. V. but also exclusive invitations to readings, guided tours, and special holiday events only offered to Freundeskreis members. In the case of events in high demand, members enjoy priority sign-ups.

The next transatlantic generation is particularly close to our hearts. Therefore the Freundeskreis supports various projects for students (“Me and My America”).

Become a member of our Freundeskreis and join us in supporting the transatlantic relationship.
Membership is free of charge for persons under the age of 26.
Students pay a reduced amount.
