Experiencing the United States and Germany first hand
Transatlantic relations are fostered and thrive through person-to-person contact and discussions. For this reason, Atlantik-Brücke organizes annual delegation trips to the USA. Through dialogue with politicians, journalists, economists, and think-tank representatives, our members gain first-hand knowledge and authentic impressions.
In addition to the delegation trips for members, Atlantik-Brücke also offers teachers an opportunity for a transatlantic experience. With study trips for American teachers, who act as multipliers, the interest in and knowledge of Germany in the USA is promoted. Since 2015, teacher trips have also been offered in the other direction – teachers from the new federal states in Germany have been given the opportunity to explore the USA on study trips. They do not only get to know the big cities, but also the diversity of America in Pennsylvania, New Mexico and other states.
