What does it mean exactly?
It’s a difficult word to pronounce and it can’t be translated from German to English in just one word, so what is it?
Gemuetlichkeit is defined as a state of warmth and friendliness. The definition also describes it to include the qualities of coziness, belonging, peace of mind and social acceptance. It’s difficult to put into words and it’s different for each person but in short, we’re thrilled you’re here with us and will treat you like you’re one of us. It’s kind of like being a member in a special club. We think it is best defined by how you feel while you’re in the Amana colonies.
Our pace of life is a little more relaxed and the cares of the outside world are miles away when you’re here in the colonies. You can relax and be yourself. In the Amana Colonies, we serve Gemuetlichkeit every day; we invite you to experience some for yourself.
