German class field trip to New Ulm

Posted on October 27th, 2013 by

Professor Pat Branstad’s German 201  class took a field trip to New Ulm, Minnesota on October 1.  New Ulm’s German heritage is evident in its restaurants, shops, and tourist sites. On the class trip, students  sampled  German dishes at Veigel’s Kaiserhoff restaurant and practiced eating the German (European) way, keeping knife in right hand and fork in left hand.  Students also toured some of New Ulm’s German heritage and tourist sites: Hermannsdenkmal (statue of “Herman the German”), the Glockenspiel, Schells Brauerei and gardens, and the local Maibaum (heritage tree), the Bäckerei and Domeiers, a local Tante Emma Laden (neighborhood grocery).
