Looking for German Classes in New Orleans, LA?

Have you wanted to learn German for a while and are finally ready to get serious?

Or perhaps you’ve started learning German with Duolingo, Rosetta stone, etc., but find they’re not teaching you the ‘bigger picture’ of how German actually works.

Sometimes even finding a good German class locally can be challenging, though.

So, I created two resources to help guide you:

  1. Below I listed ALL the German learning options in the New Orleans area.
  2. I created a FREE training for you entitled: ‘How to Actually Learn German and Avoid Wasting Years Trying’. ( ➡️ Click here to access)

Don’t forget other ways to experience German culture in New Orleans: FOOD 😇

Bratz Y’all!

Slightly Americanized yet still VERY German, Bratz Y’all, not only offers (you guessed it) German Bratwursts in a variety of fashions but hearty German platters, German pretzels, and, of course, beer.

Service location

Luke

An upper scale restaurant that claims they offer French AND German cuisine. I would argue it’s mostly French, but it still makes the list. Perhaps they’re from Strasbourg?

Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant

If you’re going for authentic German food, this isn’t likely going to do the trick (although they do offer a Bavarian pretzel). If you’re going for German beer, however, you’re at the right place.
