Win a free ticket to anywhere in Germany!

For this year’s contest, we want to know about the places and things in your community that had you #SeeingDouble! Submit your photo of a place or thing here in the US or Canada that reminded you of a German Doppelgänger!

Have you ever noticed that Toronto and Berlin both have iconic TV Towers? Did riding the Wonder Wheel in Coney Island remind you of the Ferris Wheel at Munich’s Oktoberfest? We want to hear about it!

If you need more inspiration, be sure to follow us on social media. You can find DAAD USA on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and DAAD Canada on Facebook and Twitter to see more examples!

Never been to Germany? No problem! Submit a photo of the place or thing that makes you feel like you’re in Germany without having to take a flight!

Photos can be submitted from 9/9 to 10/10. The top entries will advance to the Voting Round.

The entry with the most votes will receive free roundtrip airfare to anywhere in Germany. Second prize is a free online language course at the Goethe-Institut and third prize is a US$50 gift card to Germandeli.com (or equivalent).

All entries also have the chance to be featured on the DAAD Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts!
