Socialise and Celebrate

Our broad range of social events is the best way to make new friends and experience German culture at Oxford.

Dance away to cheerful Bavarian folk songs at the “Oxtoberfest”, smell authentic German bread at our “Abendbrot”, or meet like-minded people over a cup of good old coffee at our traditional “Kaffee und Kuchen.”

To find out more about this term’s socials take a look at our Termcard. But be warned, by attending our events you risk an overdose of free cake and fantastic friendships!


Challenge Our Speakers

What do Olaf Scholz, Carolin Kebekus, and Timur Vermes have in common? We have had the honour of welcoming all three of them to Oxford!

These speaker events are your unique opportunity to not only learn from brilliant minds, but also to challenge them by firing away your questions and raising lively discussions – share your opinions with our speakers!

Each term, we invite celebrities from various fields to join us for talks and interviews. Throughout the last few years, we have had quite a few prominent guests, all of whom you can find in our Hall of Fame.

Language Classes

Scribble like Schiller, Rhyme like Rilke

Admittedly we can’t promise to make you the next literary genius but we can certainly put you on the right track!

Whether you are starting from scratch or fine-tuning your skills, sign up for a weekly German class. These are completely free for our members and we supply the books. Who knows, perhaps you actually are the next Goethe?


We are also currently looking for people who are fluent in German to teach a 1-hour German class per week in Michaelmas 2023. No teaching experience is needed and it is a great way to get involved with the Oxford University German Society! The classes are quite low-key and taught in an informal, small-group setting and you can choose to teach online or in person as well as teach with a second teacher if you like. At the end of the term you will get a certificate attesting to the classes that you have taught and the position will get you free tickets/entry to all German Society events!
