The Deutsch-Philippinische Kulturkreis e. V. was founded on September 25, 1993. It is the first Geman-Philippine society and registered at the associtation register of the Brunswick county court. With this foundation, the Philippinas living in and round Brunswick wanted to create a connection between their old and new home.
The association participates in public events but performs own events as well. A height of the year is the Philippine Christmas Party where not only typical Philippine food is offered but also traditional folk dances and songs are presented.
