How do I meet people in Germany?

When we asked people living in Germany about club and activities where newcomers can meet others, they responded:

"In churches, recreational activities for seniors, possible employers with courts and retail or federal government jobs, AA, domestic violence experience helping people, va," said one person in Heidelberg.

"Deutsch-Amerikanische Gesellschaft, Volkshochschule (Adult Education classes), Univ of Erfurt (can also sign up as an auditor)," said one expat who made the move to Erfurt.

"Expats in Germany can join international clubs and associations, including Toastmasters International and the International Women's Club. Other activities include attending events hosted by organizations such as InterNations or participating in local walking tours to meet other expats and learn more about the city. Expats can also find social opportunities through their employer or at language schools, as well as visit local meet-up groups, bars and restaurants that host expat gatherings in their area. Additionally, many expats in Germany explore local activities and hobbies, such as learning to dance with a professional dancing school or joining an intramural sports league," explained one foreigner living in Germany.
