We first opened our doors in 1951 as a lobbing organization to support German Americans. Since that time we have grown to be a cornerstone of the Lincoln Square Community and beyond.
Built in 1927, our Haus has 77,000 square feet of surprises! We have a fully operational school, community room, four bars, ballroom, art gallery, museum, and so much more! Read about the architect, Paul Gerhardt.
DANK Haus is a 501(c)3 Not For Profit Organization. Our mission is to preserve German language, heritage and culture for future generations.
Our Board of Directors are elected by our membership. Board members uphold the values of the DANK Haus and our mission and work to improve all areas of the Haus, including capital improvements, curriculum, events and programming for the community at large.
Meet our dedicated staff members! Our team is dedicated to helping everyone that comes into the Haus, from students and parents, to bridal parties and performers, all guests are welcome!
