English Stammtisch is at Literatur Café, Am Neumarkt 1, Bielefeld (town library)

We always met from about 7.30pm onward - every second Friday - please check our blog entries for any changes.

The English Stammtisch Bielefeld was founded in the 1970s by a lecturer from the Pädagogische Hochschule Bielefeld, the forerunner of the University Bielefeld. Initially the Stammtisch was an informal meeting place for staff and students. The circle soon expanded as everybody interested in speaking English was invited to join in.

As an informal group, there are no membership fees or other regulations. We only meet to enjoy talking English. Conversational English proficiency is the only requirement to take part. Both native and non-native speakers are welcome. However, fun, not perfection, is the aim.

In the forty or so years since the Stammtisch was established, it has been visited by people from all over the world. Students and visiting lecturers from India, China, Japan, Australia, the USA and many other countries have joined us during their time in Germany. Today, not only university students and staff meet at the Stammtisch, but people of all ages and professions.

For at least the last thirty years the Stammtisch used to meet in the quiet fin-de-siècle ambience of Augustus (August-Bebel-Straße 47 on the corner of Heinrichstraße).  As Augustus closed at the end of 2012 we started looking for a new location. And we have found one: Nordpol / Mühlenstraße /Bielefeld.

Very regrettably, they closed.


Now we are at Literatur Café, Am Neumarkt 1, Bielefeld
