German School of San Francisco

Since 1935, the German School of San Francisco, a non-profit organization, has been successfully teaching students of all ages the German language and sharing with them the customs, history and culture of the German-speaking countries.

[12/15/16]   ADVENTSFEIER!

We're excited to announce our 15th annual weekend in the snow! This one will take place from Friday January 6 until Sunday January 8, 2017. As always we'll go sledding, build snow (wo)men and go for snow hikes. Here are some pictures from previous year:

The snow weekend is not part of our curriculum, just a fun way to get together with other German School families and enjoy some winter activities. Since snow and winter games are an integral part of the German, Austrian and Swiss culture we would like to offer this trip to you as a cultural enrichment to our regular school activities.

Again we were able to secure Heidelmann Lodge ( on Donner Pass for our Snow Weekend. The lodge is owned by the Naturfreunde (Friends of Nature) of California who have graciously agreed to accommodate us in their lodge for the 14th time this year. This lodge is normally for members only and is closed to the public. So we consider ourselves very lucky to be able to use this facility. Many nice features reminiscent of traditional houses in Southern German, Austria and Switzerland can be found at Heidelmann Lodge. You'll almost feel like you're in the Alps!

The lodge provides accommodations youth hostel style (Jugendherberge) in two separate dorms for men and women. We'll cook our own food on the huge WW2 era oil-burning stoves in the kitchen. Please be prepared to help with the meal planning, shopping, cooking, and cleaning up!

Prices are the same as last year and include 2 nights stay, breakfast/lunch Saturday and Sunday, as well as dinner on Saturday. You will need to bring your own bedding (e.g. sleeping bag) and towels.
Adults: $120.00
Children 14-17 years old: $80.00
Children 3-13 years old: $60.00
Children under 3: FREE

Please sign up by paying the full amount to Volker (check or cash) or via paypal ( no later than Saturday December 17, 2016 (Adventsfeier, last day of school before the Holidays). All children will have to be accompanied by at least one of their own parents.
