Contact and opening hours


Update as of 16.07.2020:
Due to the COVID19 situation, the Goethe-Institut Glasgow had to temporarily close its doors to the public and has moved all current activities online. Following the Scottish government’s guidelines on the easing of lockdown, we are now working hard on planning a careful return to our building during the second half of the year.
