COVID-19 Update

Dear friends of the Goethe-Institut,

We would like to wish you a happy, successful and healthy new year and are looking forward to many shared projects and events in 2022. Unfortunately, the high number of new Covid-19 infections that have accompanied us into this year mean that our operational procedures continue to be disrupted.

We remain convinced that intercultural exchange is fed by face-to-face encounters, and will therefore try to facilitate this in a “physical format” (language courses on-site in the classroom, events in the hall…) once more as soon as possible.

At the same time, the health and safety of our guests, friends and colleagues are of the utmost priority. We will endeavor to maintain the highest possible level of security at all of our events through a host of safety measures (deep cleaning, good ventilation, social distancing, limiting the number of visitors we can welcome at one time and check-in procedures).

Additionally, in light of the current Covid-19 developments, we are revising which events will be held in the digital sphere on a weekly basis in order to further reduce the danger of infection. Please keep yourself informed through social media, our website or, if necessary, a call about the current regulations.

Many thanks for your understanding – we will overcome these challenges together and look forward to a reunion unimpeded by masks, QR-codes or other restrictions.

Best wishes,

Your Goethe-Team
