Welcome to the Yale Club of Germany

Are you a current/past student/scholar/faculty member or friend of Yale and temporarily or permanently based in Germany? We are here to connect Yalies in Germany. We organize social and cultural and community service events, and we interview German applicants to Yale.

If you are an alumnus of any Yale school, a current Yale student or scholar spending time in Germany, or a friend of Yale, we welcome you to our activities!

Our club organizes regular Stammtisch meetups in Frankfurt, Berlin and Munich, sometimes in conjunction with other Ivy League alumni organizations. We have alumni interested in organizing additional social and cultural events in Hamburg and in the Düsseldorf area.

Get involved! If you have event ideas, or are interested in organizing an event yourself, let us know!

No Events


The Yale Club is always looking for alumni to interview local high-school students who are applying to Yale College. If you would like to help out or learn more, please click here to e-mail our ASC director, Rebecca Haltzel-Haas.

Yale Club of Germany Prize

We are in the “quiet phase” of a long-term program to raise at least €20,000, with an eventual goal of €100,000, to endow this award for presentation to exceptional high school students in Germany who have been accepted to Yale. If you are interested in learning more about how you can contribute to this worthy effort, please click here to let David Ilten know. Meanwhile, thanks to those who have contributed recently!


The Club does not assess dues, but asks its members to make an modest annual contribution (€20 suggested, but any amount is welcome) to help fund Club activities such as the Yale Book Award.
