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, which cannot be found anywhere else in the world, joins the Goethe-Zentrum with the Alliance Francaise d'Atlanta to offer a variety of cultural and language programs all under one roof!
