The Goethe-Institut is located at 1990 K St. NW, Suite 03 (entrance off 20th St.) Located between Farragut Square and Washington Circle just off K St. NW in downtown DC, we are easy to reach with public transportation.

Take the Red line to Farragut North or the Blue, Orange or Silver line to Farragut West or Foggy Bottom. We are located just three blocks from these stops.

Numerous lines stop within a block or so of the Goethe-Institut.

Bicycle racks are located on 20th Street just north and south of the entrance to the Goethe-Institut.

Parking is available for hire in numerous nearby parking garages. The closest is Atlantic, underneath the Goethe-Institut and accessible from the south side of K Street between 19th and 20th streets. On-street parking is limited, although easier in the evening hours; please read the street signs carefully as enforcement is strict.
