Editorial Review of DANK Haus

If guten tag is the only expression you remember from that one German class you took in college to meet the language requirement, then DANK Haus is for you. Actually, DANK is for everyone interested in the language, culture and history of Germany. The six-floor building has everything from a museum and library to an elaborate ballroom and classrooms brimming with German language-loving geeks.

Classes run on a yearly basis from September through June with a mid-semester break. Each semester is $270 and books usually run around $80. Courses are also offered in the summer and despite their rigorous schedule, these sessions tend to have a more laid-back atmosphere—perhaps it's all that sunshine.

The DANK Haus is home to the elegant Marunde Grand Ballroom, sleek Skyline Lounge and casual Brandenburg Room, all of which can be rented out for weddings, birthdays, meetings and other special events. The crew here has been known to throw a few special events themselves, including Oktoberfest, a New Year's Eve bash and concerts featuring the Polkaholics, a self-described "high-speed collision of polka and rock n' roll" band. One thing remains certain at DANK: When classes let out, these people know how to party.
