Famous for our Apple Strudel, the Alpine Club is one of the best-known German-Canadian Clubs. Come out for a traditional home-cooked meal and stay for a night filled with music and dancing.
Dance to the music of the 2008 "Small Band Award" Winning Band "Variation" while taking in a show from our own Alpine Dancers, Alpine Junior Dancers as well as Guest Dance Groups. You'll find the crowd ranging in age from University students to senior citizens. This hall was the 1999 winner of the "Gastfreundschaft Award" for German Clubs and the "Gemuetlichkeit Award" winner in 2004. Neat, casual dress.
The Alpine Club was founded in 1953 by members originating from Gottschee, Austria and Germany when they settled in the Kitchener-Waterloo area. The Alpine Club maintains and nurtures its traditions of speaking Gottscheerisch, German and English not only during Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest but throughout the year.
As one of the best known German-Canadian Clubs, with a cozy atmosphere, delicious cooked meals, entertainment by ethnic German dance groups and great music - the Alpine Club is a very popular choice on any of the nine days fo Gemuetlichkeit during Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest!
There is no typical crowd at the Alpine Club, you will find the patrons range from University students to senior citizens, and everything in between. Famous far and wide for our apple strudel, made by our ladies in the club; there is something for everyone at the Alpine Club!
