Welcome to GERN NW, a website for Germanophiles in the Pacific Northwest of the United States and Canada.

GERN is an acronym for German Enthusiast Regional Network and we celebrate and promote culture, community, business, and international relations associated with German-speaking countries in Europe including Austria, Germany, Lichtenstein, and Switzerland, as well as other German-speaking regions of Europe such as South Tyrol in Italy, Northern Schleswig in Denmark, and Upper Silesia in Poland.

A few of the topics we like to cover here on GERN NW include architecture, art, automobiles, business, culture, film, food, heritage, history, literature, music, people, politics, technology...among many others.
