The library of the Goethe-Institut Thailand was redesigned to offer its visitors a more modern, spacious, colourful and inviting space. Now, the library is much more than just a reading room! It is an attractive study and meeting place, providing a variety of media services.

You can now study, keep up-to-date with the latest German events, play (board) games or watch German films in a pleasant, relaxing atmosphere. Alternatively, get inspired by our collection of beautiful art books, comics and graphic novels!
