German Field Trip to Alpenhaus Deli

The German 1, 2, 3 and 4 classes went to Alpenhaus Deli on September 27. The point of this field trip was to experience and enjoy authentic German food, music and culture right here in Boise.

 Sophomore Fatema Shaker thought her first German field trip was really fun. To her, the most important part of the trip was the music. 

“The music was very outgoing and it had a good vibe, like from one of those old movies, especially with the clothes they wore,” she said. The musicians and employees inside the deli wore traditional lederhosen in celebration of Oktoberfest, a German festival celebrated in October with music, food and drinks.

“Germany is big and has a big history, I just like learning about the culture,” Shaker said. Learning about the culture was a big part of the field trip, and Shaker plans to continue in the program.
