The German American Friendship Society of Pinellas, founded in 1951, with a dream was to provide a place where Germans, Americans and German- Americans could come together.   Every Saturday night we dance to live band music and offer great German food and drink shared by our members and guests. We invite you to our club to enjoy Gemütlichkeit, that feeling of warmth and friendship that we strive to provide at Germania Hall.

Ilse is wearing Tracht from her home region Franken

When most people think of Germany they naturally think of Oktoberfest, a celebration that originates
from the State of Bavaria. Most Germans will tell
you, there are 15 other States in Germany. All states are as wonderfully rich in culture and unique as Bavaria.  We welcome all regions of Germany. In German, your home area is your Heimat, and your traditional clothing is your Tracht.
Where is your Heimat? What is your Tracht?
