We’ll be giving away a Goethe surprise package every day during Advent. Read a chapter a day of the Goethe family’s Advent adventures and misadventures and answer the question at the end of each chapter by posting a comment. Your comments will be automatically entered in that day’s raffle and, with a bit of luck, you might win something. The winners will be notified by email.

It pays to play!
We will also be raffling off three vouchers* for German Training Online courses worth €239 each among all participants who post a comment in any of the 24 Advent Calendar doors.

* The vouchers must be redeemed between 24 December 2022 and 31 December 2023. The winners will be notified by email on or before 31 January 2023.


Anyone who is in the Christmas spirit and has registered on "Mein Goethe.de". Goethe-Institut employees are not allowed to take part.
You can win a prize if you answer the question for the day by posting a comment in the corresponding door of the Advent Calendar or by commenting on the corresponding Instagram post (@goetheinstitut).
The raffle runs from 1 to 24 December. You can take part by posting a comment at any time during that period.
By posting answers to any questions for the day in the corresponding Advent Calendar doors, you will automatically be eligible not only for the corresponding daily prizes, but also for the main prizes to be raffled off among all participants who post comments in any of the 24 doors.
