Come join us for some German Döner (Kebab or Kabob) and some German fun!

We will have quiz games and crafts to entertain Geocachers of all ages!

The German classes (students and teacher) from Hendrickson High School will be joining us to help teach some German to those who are interested and discuss their plans to visit Germany this year!

We will have an online "Kahoot" (https://kahoot.it/) big-screen German themed quiz that you interact using your cell phones with German swag awards for those who participate! There will also be crafts in a German theme and other activities!

We will be holding the event at the Verts Mediterranean Food restaurant, patronization is optional but delicious! :)

West Anderson Plaza

Come as you are or come dressed in any German attire for that extra flair and fun! :-)

About Dönerstag.
Dönerstag began in 2007 when German cachers met at kebab shops around the country all at the same time. The tradition caught on!

These special events are held each year on a Thursday. In German, this makes the name “Dönerstag” a pun: The German word for Thursday is “Donnerstag.” Kebab translates to “Döner.” Last year, over 6000 players attended 233 Dönerstag events. The events were held all over Europe, from Germany and Austria to the United Kingdom and Switzerland.

From Mopac - exit Steck Ave/West Anderson, go through Steck Ave light, turn left on West Anderson. It across the street from Northcross Mall, and before Alamo Drafthouse theatre.

From IH-35, exit US 183, and find and turn on to West Anderson lane (same exit and intersection as Lamar). Go up West Anderson several blocks, it will be on your right after Alamo Drafthouse theatre.
