The primary focus of the Goethe-Zentrum is to foster cultural relationships between German-speaking and American people and to facilitate and co-produce projects of national and international scope to  promote a better understanding of German culture, language and society within the larger context of  European life.

The Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta is part of Atlanta's European Cultural Center. This unique partnership cannot be found anywhere else in the world and sees the Goethe joining forces with the Alliance Francaise d'Atlanta and the Societa Dante Alighieri to offer diverse culture and language programs all under one roof!
