BE INSPIRED - Discover Germany!

The Big Swap Library display
Visit our newly refurbished library rooms to get acquainted with the latest works by German authors. Relax at our readers' bar (coffee is allowed!) with a book or newspaper and enjoy the view of Princes Gardens. Or you can watch the German TV channels in our TV lounge.

The focal points of our collection are 20th and 21st century German literature, art, culture, society and history. The book and magazine collections are complemented by audio books and the greatest choice of German feature and documentary films available in London. Since 2011 we've also been able to offer electronic media from our online eLibrary (see eLibrary service ).

We place particular emphasis on 'Deutsch als Fremdsprache' (German as a foreign language) to which we dedicate one of our rooms. This room offers a fully equipped classroom, as well as offering a wide range of language learning and teaching material.

We look forward to your visit!
