 About Us

The Club is a non-religious, non-political and non-profiting making organisation, and membership is open to women of all nationalities.

Our members are a mixture of:

- “Long termers”, many married to Germans
- “Short termers”, here because of temporary job postings
- Professional women, homemakers, retirees, employees, freelancers, newlyweds, singles, artists, students, new mothers, entrepreneurs, managers, etc.

The spoken language of AGIWA is English.

AGIWA is affiliated with the Welcome Clubs International. 

AGIWA provides a social network for women of many nations living in Hamburg, while its core of German members lends to stability to an otherwise changing membership.

Join Us! 

Membership is offered to all women interested in the aims of the Association, but our constitution requires a balance of German and International members.


As a member of AGIWA you can attend all the monthly and on-going activities. You will receive the bi-monthly newsletter about upcoming activities and member news. As a new member you will also receive a membership directory.


Last but not least, you can vote to elect the Board once a year, stand for election on the Board and become a committee member.


The club year runs from Sept. 1st to Aug. 31st.


The annual subscription is € 40.
