On this page we show you how to install and set up the Onleihe app for your iOS device. The app enables you to use our digital library containing more than 35,000 German language media on mobile devices.
To use the Onleihe, a one-time registration is required via our website at “Mein Goethe.de”.
If you do not yet have an account on our website, please register. Registration and use of the media are free of charge.
Step 2: Activate Onleihe
After logging in, click the menu item "My eLibrary" and then click “Log in”.
Open the menu of the Onleihe app (three bars in the upper left corner of the app).
>> Choose Goethe-Institut as a library.
>> Log in using your credentials for My Goethe.de.
Step 6: Download a medium
You are now logged in! Select the menu item “Browse” to look for and download media.
The first time you download a medium you will be automatically prompted to agree to the data protection statement and to the conditions of use. Please confirm your acceptance.
Step 8: Adobe ID
The first time you download a medium you have to enter your Adobe ID. If you do not have an Adobe ID, click here to obtain one free of charge. You do not have to enter an Adobe ID for subsequent media downloads.
