Our Story

Being in Australia now for 20 years I had the longing to connect with fellow Germans again. Hosting a German book club brought so much fun and joy in the last two years that I decided to launch a new business / network connecting Germans with each other. Wochenende was born :) 

My purpose is to bring like-minded people together, to connect in our German language, to fuel our home roots / our home longing, to replenish our cultural hearts.
