One things Germans in Vancouver seem to love with all their heart is soccer. Most people head to the Vancouver Alpen Club, which attracts people from all over. The Euro Cup 2016 has their Grand Opening on Friday, June 10th, 2016.
Meanwhile, here in Vancouver, there are 3 games that are of interest to the German Community and anyone else who follows the German soccer team.
- Sunday, June 12th – Doors Open at 11 am
2. Thursday, June 16th, 2016 – Doors open at 11 am
3. Tuesday, June 21st – Doors open at 11 am
But where can you go if the Alpen Club is too full or if you can’t get to the German Club due to lack of transportation or another reason?
This year, the Manchester Pub and Eatery on Broadway (at Maple) is offering the German Games, as well. $10 entry gets you your first Carlsen Beer, as well!
Euro Cup 2016

Christopher and Kassandra Gehry purchased the Jaegerhof Restaurant in 2014, when it was 33 years old. Their motto is: A Taste of the Alps.
My husband and I were treated to a meal on Wednesday, July 8th, 2015 at 6 pm, where we both enjoyed the Schnitzel with fried potatoes & Bratwurst, and then a delicious Apple Strudl made with phyllo pastry and served with powdered sugar, Vanilla Cream Sauce and a strawberry garnish. My husband enjoyed a Krombacher Beer, and I later enjoyed a cup of Earl Grey, the Sonnentor Brand – organic tea from an Austrian Supplier. The service was good and our table was seated right by the window. Here is a picture of our food:
Christopher is very open to new ideas and enjoys getting menu suggestions from his customers.
Something new that the Gehrys started were music nights on Wednesdays and Fridays, where the 125-year old piano, a guitar and an accordion take turns playing traditional favourites, jazz hits or songs to sing along to. Chris is also an amazing singer.
The Jaegerhof has won the Golden Plate Award, the North Shore News Reader’s choice Award and also the “Best Food on the North Shore” on TripAdvisor. It was pleasantly accessible via the Seabus (SeaBus is a passenger only ferry that crosses the Burrard Inlet, connecting downtown Vancouver with the North Shore.) and worth the trip. Our Schnitzel was crispy, the potatoes had a hint of bacon, the vanilla cream sauce was just right and the Strudl was not too sweet.
