History of the Volksmarch

History of the Volksmarch

Physical culture and sport are an integral part of German culture. According to the German Embassy, about 27 million people (or a quarter of the population) belong to sports clubs, while another 12 million participate in sports independently. While many of these sports include such competitive sports as soccer, basketball, handball, volleyball, and ice hockey, there is another group of sports known as “Volkssports,” which are non-competitive in nature.Continue Reading

Events

Germania opens its doors to the public several times a year with events for the whole family, primarily: Oktoberfest, Christkindlmarkt, and Maifest, plus smaller events like our twice-yearly Volksmarch (group hike in the woods), a wine-tasting, and a stein auction. We also host many more events for our members each month, including parties, picnics, and various socials for holidays and special occasions.

Groups

The Germania Society has many Gruppen (groups) that provide various opportunities for our members to explore German culture or take part in fun activities. In addition, we also have a number of committees that plan and execute our various events, as well as maintain our organization and facilities. We encourage all our members to explore the opportunities for fun and service within the club.

Tour

Take a virtual tour of our facilities. Germania Park is located in Colerain Township, on 18 acres of primarily wooded land with hiking trails, and includes a large klubhouse/banquet hall with a bar and outdoor biergarten, a traditional maipole, a large pavilion with it’s own bar and walk-in cooler, outdoor bathrooms, a children’s playground, a wooded picnic grove, and a large wiesn (festival grounds).
