As one of the absolute highlights of the year of German-American friendship, the Goethe Institut’s Wanderbus travelled over 25,000 miles all across the United States in 2019 and visited over 60 schools and universities in the process. Thanks to this incredible success story, we are bringing the Wanderbus back in 2020, and with it all the wonderful opportunities to learn about Germany, the German-American friendship, and German as a foreign language.
