German Language House

The study of German at Colorado College does not end in the classroom. Our students are an integral part of extracurricular and departmental activities. Over the years, many have gone on to great things but have remained loyal alumni.

The Max Kade House is the German Department's own language theme house on the CC campus. Designed as a full-time residence for 15 students, the German House provides a fantastic atmosphere in which to live and learn. It is also the base for the many extra-curricular German events such as lectures, musical events, Christmas, Fasching and Oktoberfest parties and especially the Kaffeklatsch every Wednesday 15:30 to 16:30 (except the last Wednesday of the block). Everyone interested in German language, culture and meeting interesting people is invited to come.

Cultural Program Coordinator- Markus Breintner- 2017-18

Hello! My name is Markus, I am 25 years old and I grew up in Ampfing, a small village in southern Bavaria. After living in Munich for two years, I moved to beautiful Regensburg four years ago to study English and sports for becoming a teacher. Since I heard about getting the chance to live, work and study at CC in the amazing state of Colorado, my excitement and my pleasant anticipation has grown from day to day. I am really looking forward to having a wonderful time in the German House and I hope we will see each other at Kaffeeklatsch (every Wednesday) or any other time. I would love to share everything I know about our German culture and language with you! See you soon! Bis dann! Markus

The German House is distinguished by its comfortable interior. During the summers of 1997 and 2011, the German House underwent significant remodeling.

In addition to general improvements and redecoration, a brand-new kitchen, dedicated billiards room, and easy access for the disabled were added.

The beautiful Benedictine garden & fish pond invite the students to relax and enjoy their beautiful surroundings.

Computer resources and an international satellite television system are located in the 'Garden House' next door.

If you have any questions about living in the German House, contact the German program.
