Directions:

Driving/biking/walking:  Take 11th Street north, then take a right on Spring Garden Street.  The German Society will be on your left just after 7th Street (Google Maps will suggest a u-turn, but there's a break in the median that allows you to turn directly into their parking lot).  It's a 1-mile, 20-minute walk.

Bus:  Take the 47M from 9th and Market (departs 10:01am) to 7th and Spring Garden (arrives 10:08am).
