American Citizens Info Night, 25 Sept. (Frankfurt)
On Wednesday, 25 Sept. the American Consulate in Frankfurt will be holding their annual American Citizens Night from 16: Protected content . This event is open to American citizens and their families.
A wide variety of information will be available from citizen services, such as Federal Benefits, IRS tax forms, birth and passport registrations and more. Most of the international schools and English speaking churches will be there, as well as the many other organizations and clubs. VFW, German-American Friendship Club, Square dancing, Frankfurt Ski Club, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and Democrats Abroad, are just a few examples. Yours truly, with Frankfurt on Foot, will also have a table, so hope you stop by and say hi.
Refreshments will be free, and there is usually some sort of entertainment. Could be square dancing or a choir, but I guess we will have to wait and see.
You will need your American passport to come in. Family members of American citizens may also come to this event when accompanied by a citizen. They will also need their passports. No phones, cameras or any other electronic devices are allowed in, and they will also not let you leave them at the entrance. Best is to leave them at home or in your car. Parking is available, but if you want to come by public transportation, the U-5 is one of the best ways to get here if you are coming from the Frankfurt Hauptbahnhof or Konstablerwache. You would get off at the Giessener Str. stop. Alternative, depending on where you are coming from is to use bus 32 or tram 18 from the Konstablerwache, getting off at Friedberger Warte and walking around to the consulate. Bus 34 is also a good transportation choice coming from Bornheim or Rödelheim.
