"We are a group that comes together to practice the arts and to enjoy a good sense of humor. We want to create an opportunity, for a few hours during our gatherings, to be ourselves: relaxed, no stress, creative, and have fun. Therefore, we do not talk about politics, religion, and most importantly our professional work. Our founders (in 1859 in Prague, Czech Republic) had this magnificent idea and as to the trend in the literature (Romantik) of that époque, we submerge ourselves into the times of the knights of the middle age and practice the arts, friendship, and humor under the umbrella of those times. In today’s word: we play a game with some special rules, like Fortnite. Intrigued? Schlaraffia, how it is called, is open to everybody to join one of over 300 groups all over the world. As the founders were German-speaking musicians, our official language remains German and with this little bias, we relate more to German and European art and culture without prejudice to others. Our group is located in Washington DC."
