Contact and opening hours

Office hours:
Monday–Thursday: 10 am – 4 pm

We're pleased to be able to welcome you back to the Goethe-Institut San Francisco. On account of the current situation, our general opening hours and regulations are subject to change.

You may visit us during general opening hours with no prior registration necessary. To protect the health of our visitors, students and staff, face masks are required.

If you need to speak to a particular staff member, please contact them in advance (ideally via e-mail), as staff members continue to work from home a few days a week.

Please do stay in touch! Information about online programs and the projects of the Goethe-Institut and its partners may be found in our event calendar or on Facebook.

Wheelchair access is available through the main entrance of the building.
