The Goethe-Institut is the Federal Republic of Germany’s cultural institution that promotes the study of German abroad and encourages international cultural exchange. They also foster knowledge about Germany by providing information on its culture, society and politics.

The information center and library of the Goethe-Institut provide comprehensive information about contemporary Germany. There is access to about 12,000 books, numerous newspapers and periodicals as well as audio-visual materials. Visitors to the information center and library can also use a computer with Internet connection.

Periodic exhibitions of German art are generally quite good, and opening nights are very popular with the German-speaking crowd. The films shown are usually fascinating, and most events are free.
