The Goethe-Institut is the cultural institute of the Federal Republic of Germany with a global reach.
We promote knowledge of the German language abroad and foster international cultural cooperation. We convey a comprehensive image of Germany by providing information about cultural, social and political life in our nation. Our cultural and educational programmes encourage intercultural dialogue and enable cultural involvement. They strengthen the development of structures in civil society and foster worldwide mobility.
Our long-lasting partnerships with leading institutions and individuals in over ninety countries create enduring trust in Germany. There are 8 facilities in France and 12 in Germany. Since 1972, the Goethe-Institut Bordeaux offers a large cultural and educational program. We are partners for all who actively engage with Germany and its culture, working independently and without political ties.
