The Volksbarmarch takes place in Philly on the first Bundesliga Saturday of each season. The first Saturday of the 2016/2017 season is August 27, 2016. We hope to see many of you at Brauhaus Schmitz at 9:30 AM for the first matches. After the matches (around 11:45 AM) the march goes to BRÜ Craft & Wurst on Chestnut (stay around an hour), to Bierstube German Biergarten on Market (stay less than an hour), and then returns back to Brauhaus. The march route is a little over 3 miles. Beer, exercise, and fun!
