What we offer

Welcome to the Goethe-Institut library!

Here you will find a range of current print and audiovisual media in German and in translation. Our key focus areas are German literature, arts and culture, as well as society and history of the 20th and 21st century. Our offer of books and magazines is complemented by literary audiobooks and a collection of German movies and documentaries that is unique in London.

There is a special emphasis on “German as a foreign language” for which we have a dedicated learning centre. In addition to a variety of learning and teaching materials, the centre offers a fully-equipped classroom.

You can also access e-books and electronic magazines 24/7 via our eLibrary.
