Upcoming Events

Bamberg Buddies Welcome Event + "Bockbieranstich"

After the success of the Bamberg Buddies program—a special German-American-Canadian student program—over the last ten years, we were very excited to revive in person events during the summer term 2022. The idea of these events is to bring those of you interested in cultural exchange together with our university’s incoming North American exchange students, who are very happy to meet their peers from Bamberg.

To welcome the winter semester’s Canadian and American students, and to invite Bamberg students to meet our new Canadians and American guests, we will get together for a Welcome Event and an evening of drinks and conversations at Bräuerei Fässla on Thursday, October 27!

6:00 pm: American Studies team welcomes new Canadian and American students (Room U5/01.18)

7:15 pm: Canadian and American students meet up with students from Bamberg (U5/01.18) to go to Fässla’s “Bockbieranstich” together. At a Bockbieranstich, you can try original Bockbier, a strong beer that the people of Bamberg have been drinking since the Middle Ages, when monks used it to supplement their diet during lent. Today, Bockbieranstiche are held in the famous breweries of the town and attract locals throughout October and November.

We would kindly ask you to register for the event by writing a short email to bambergbuddies.amerikanistik@uni-bamberg.de until Tuesday, October 25 and / or joint the event on Facebook.

We are very much looking forward to seeing you on October 27!
