German Free School
Cassandra Broeker (student at Austin College): "One of the most rewarding school experiences I had was Oktoberfest at the German Free School in Austin Texas, otherwise known as the German Texas Heritage Society. The German Free School is a place to hunt down antiques, eat German food, take language classes, or to just go and hang out and have conversations in German. I discovered it through my high school. Every year for Oktoberfest, the German students would get together, get in costume, and go perform traditional folk dances. It was a great time, and the School remains one of my favorite places in Austin."
