The German-American Day reminds us of October 6th, 1683, when 13 German families arrived near Philadelphia and founded Germantown. This day honors the contribution of German immigrants to the development of America.

In 1952, the first U.S. aircraft landed at Ramstein Air Base. Since these years, the region around Kaiserslautern has also been shaped by Americans, and citizens have lived together with members of the U.S. military - a life with many ups and downs as well as common challenges, to which the Atlantic Academy is intensively dedicated.
