Original Wanderbus (2019)

The Wanderbus was one of the absolute highlights of the year of German-American friendship in 2019. Our team travelled over 20,000 miles, visited thousands of students at over 60 schools and universities, and brought the spirit of the German-American friendship to all of the lower 48 states. 

Sadly, due to the COVID-19 pandemic we will have to cancel the extension of the Wanderbus tour that we had planned for 2020. However, our team did create a package of digital Wanderbus content which we have made available to download for free. Enjoy & stay wunderbar together!
