Visit the Goethe-Institut Chicago with your students!

Please call or e-mail Theresa Fuchs to discuss the program type, date and time of your visit!

Presently, we offer two types of class visits:

  • a one hour visit (max. 25 students) during which interesting facts about the Goethe-Institut and a Germany-related topic are covered in an interactive, educational manner
  • a two hour visit (max. 20 students) during which the Escape Room inspired game "Netzagenten" is played.  Students need to team up to find an anonymous hacker. The minimum German level to participate in the game is A2.
A signed photo release form is required for all visiting students:

Christmas class visits

Traditionally, most school classes visit us before Christmas and combine their trip to Chicago with a visit to Christkindl Market. This year's Christmas class visits take place from December 1 until December 18, 2020. To RSVP for a Christmas class visit, we ask that you complete our registration form and return it to us as soon as possible (first-come, first-serve) prior to your visit:

Last year's visits before Christmas took place between December 2 and December 18, 2019. In total, more than 750 students from 23 schools and 4 different states came to the Goethe-Institut Chicago during that time. They learned about the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the division of Germany, and the Berlin Airlift. We want to thank our visitors for the great interest in our program. We had lots of fun during this time and are already looking forward to the class visits in 2020.
