Advent calendar

The Goethe-Institut’s digital Advent calendar is back!

This year, join elf Karl and reindeer Matilda, in 24 short stories, as they train to become Weihnachtsmann’s Christmas little helpers. Together with Karl and Matilda, you’ll learn typical words and find out all about Christmas traditions in Germany. With a little luck, you might even win an online German training course!

Politics & Culture
Radio Bridge Bratislava 2023

How has the war in Ukraine changed life in Slovakia and the relationship with Russia? What was the country discussing shortly before the parliamentary elections? And what is life like in Bratislava? To explore these questions, radioeins and rbbKultur were jointly building a radio bridge to the Slovakian capital Bratislava.
