Enjoy fresh 'Lebkuchen', the traditional German Christmas punch 'Feuerzangenbowle', hot 'Glühwein' (mulled wine) or non-alcoholic hot fruit punch, as well as a variety of Christmas cookies at the German Centre in the DRC Liangmaqiao Diplomatic Office Building.

At 7 pm, we will show the 1944 German film classic 'Die Feuerzangenbowle' to create the perfect Christmas feeling. If you don't feel like watching the movie, you can just mingle with colleagues and friends, while enjoying the atmosphere and some more tasty snacks and drinks.
'Die Feuerzangenbowle' (1944), Directed By Helmut Weiss
The title refers to the traditional German Feuerzangenbowle punch consumed by a group of gentlemen in the opening scene of the movie. While exchanging nostalgic stories about their schooldays, the successful young writer Dr. Johannes Pfeiffer realizes he missed out on something because he was home schooled and never attended school. He decides to make up for it by masquerading as a student at a small town high school, quickly gaining a reputation as a prankster. Since the 1980s, the movie received cult status and is shown at many German Christmas Parties.
The good cause of our yearly Charity Christmas Party is that the earnings will be used to support the 'Hong Qi primary school' in the outskirts of Chaoyang District. This school's dedication is to provide education for migrant workers' children, whose parents are mostly extremely poor and thus struggle to afford the school fee. Hence, we would like to ask you for a kind contribution to this cause - the funds will be used to support the smooth running of the school like learning material for the children, other school equipment and many more.
