Who We Are

The Donauschwaben are ethnic Germans that lived outside of Germany in the Slavic regions of Eastern Europe predominately along the Danube River. ​The purpose of the United Donauschwaben of Milwaukee is to keep the Donauschwaben heritage alive while promoting the language, foods and customs to the public at large.       

Let Us Dance For You!

The United Donauschwaben of Milwaukee Kultur, Jugend and Kinder Dance Groups perform regularly at German Festivals, Oktoberfests, Retirement Homes, Schools and various private events throughout Southeastern Wisconsin. If you are interested in having any or all of our groups perform at your next event, please contact us for more information!
