Digital WanderbUS

              GET ON THE BUS  >>>

The journey of the Wanderbus continues in 2021!
In 2019 our team travelled over 25,000 miles all across the United States and brought the spirit of the German-American friendship to thousands of students at over 60 schools and universities in the US. 
Thanks to this incredible success story, the Wanderbus was brought back as a virtual bus in September 2020.
The Digital Wanderbus features a 3D space where students can dive into a variety of topics, from politics to science, from German history to culture.
