Let’s meet at the Ganter Brauerei-Biergarten for our yearly 4th of July Party – a true highlight for all of us!  For this year’s celebration of the 239th Independence Day and the birth of the United States we will come together with friends from around the globe and enjoy a very special summer’s day. Let’s fire up the grill and relish some fine and spicy barbecue dishes, have cool drinks and listen to lovely live music. There will be lots of fun activities for kids, festive decorations, special guests, plentiful chances to practice some classic American sports with real pros – and, of course, oodles of that glorious midsummer glow! Join us in celebrating this joyous occasion – and we’ll make sure its going to be a blast!
