Description

“It takes a German to do it.”   In the 19th century, that became a New Orleans saying for accomplishing the near impossible.  By that time, Germans had been a driving force in the community for over a century.  Though time has blurred the significant contributions of the German people to the Crescent City, there are many contemporary reminders of the tremendous impact of this ethnic group on New Orleans culture.  From the Garden District’s stately homes to the quintessential French bread, the city owes much to its German ancestors.

As the largest group of foreign-speaking people in New Orleans from 1848 to 1900, Germans entered almost every trade and profession, frequently beating out the native competition.  GERMAN NEW ORLEANS spotlights the many success stories in the community’s history.
