The Capital Office connects the Head Office of the Goethe-Institut in Munich with cultural, political and economic partners in Berlin and is the contact point for the press in the capital city. The Capital Office is headquartered at the Berlin Goethe-Institut, one of 13 Goethe-Instituts in Germany.
Organisationally, however, the Capital Office is affiliated with the Head Office, which, with approximately 300 employees, supports the nearly 150 Goethe-Instituts abroad from Munich. That is also where all of the divisions of the Goethe-Institut are located. The executive committee and the president of the Goethe-Institut also work in Munich.
The Communications Staff Division at the Head Office has employees based in both Munich and at the Capital Office. Viola Noll is responsible for contacts with the press; Nicolas Ehler is the contact for the parliament and ministries at the Capital Office.

Are you an artist or cultural professional seeking to collaborate with the Goethe-Institut abroad?
The work of the Goethe-Institut is locally structured. This means that the respective institutes abroad decide on acceptance of projects. The local conditions abroad are decisive for the organisation of cultural programming, as it is always integrated into the local cultural policy context. Cultural work is always done in cooperation with local partners. We’d be happy to help you find suitable contacts at our institutes abroad.
Are you looking for financial support for your projects?
Unfortunately, the Goethe-Institut in Germany is not equipped with adequate funds to promote projects in the traditional sense. The Goethe-Institut sees itself as a partner in project development, not as a grant provider. Abroad, the Goethe-Institut can then provide co-funding if it is a project partner.
The Goethe-Institut Berlin and the Goethe-Institut Capital Office work under one roof at Neue Schönhauser Straße 20.
The building is easy to reach in the Berlin-Mitte district between the S-Bahn stations Hackescher Markt and Alexanderplatz, from which it is a five-minute walk.
The U-Bahn station Weinmeisterstraße (U-Bahn line 8) is located directly in front of the institute. Parking is not available!
The Capital Office is located on the fourth floor of the front building.
