Discover your German roots - From the most important points in the history of German immigration to today’s American multicultural society: Germans have always taken part in shaping the country. Check out some fun facts below about America's German Heritage.

  • German American celebrations are held throughout the country, one of the most well-known being the German-American Steuben Parade in New York City, held every third Saturday in September.
  • German settlers brought the Christmas tree custom and other German Christmas traditions to the United States such as drinking Glühwein (mulled wine), famous Christmastime treats that include Lebkuchen (gingerbread), Stollen (fruit cake), and Marzipan (confectionery often made into sweets).
  • What do the Brothers Grimm, Dr. Seuss, Hugo Boss, Elvis Presley and Lou Gehrig have in common? They all share German heritage.
  • Oktoberfest - the world’s favorite German fest: This 16-day festival in Munich attracts over six million visitors per year who consume about 1,320,860 gallons of beer, 400,000 pork sausages and 480,000 roasted chickens. Not surprisingly, Oktoberfest has inspired many similar festivals around the world, including many locations in North America.
  • The Easter Bunny: The bunny as a symbol for Easter is first mentioned in writings in 16th century Germany. The first edible Easter bunnies, made of pastry and sugar, were also produced in Germany in the early 1700s.
