Take a Guided Tour of the DANK Haus

 Who We Are 

 Founded in 1959, the DANK Haus is a non-profit organization committed to   preserving German language and culture. Our museum, gallery, language       courses, and cultural events have been a mainstay in the Lincoln Square     neighborhood for over 50 years.

Six Floors of Italian Renaissance Design

Come experience Chicago history firsthand with a visit to our six-story center built in 1927 by German-American architect Paul Gerhardt, Sr. Originally built as a temple for the International Order of Odd Fellows, our beautiful building is now a popular destination for fans of Chicago architecture that is off the beaten path. Highlights include the luxurious Marunde ballroom and the lovely view from our sixth-floor terrace

 Guided Museum & Gallery Tours

 Our museum is home to the “Lost German Chicago” exhibition that features   artifacts, artwork, and memorabilia from Chicago’s German-American   community. Experience the drama of the Haymarket riots and see original   pieces from the World’s Columbian Exposition.

 Our tours also include the Scharpenberg gallery which hosts rotating artistic   and historical exhibits. 

Plan Your Visit 

For groups of 10 or more (60 max), we offer guided tours led by our knowledgeable DANK Haus staff. Plan to spend one hour exploring the museum, gallery, Schlaraffia room (maintained by a secretive German-speaking society from Prague), and other sights.
