ABOUT US

The “Weeks of the German Language” is an annual festival organised by the Embassies of Austria, Germany, Switzerland and the Goethe-Institut Cyprus in October and November. A whole series of activities related to the German language and the culture of each country is organized, including cinema, musical events, theatre and lectures. German is the most widely spoken mother tongue in Europe and the German speaking countries offer attractive job markets and study opportunities. By promoting the German language we support multilingualism in Cyprus and contribute to the already flourishing cultural exchange between Cyprus and these countries. The “Weeks of the German Language” took place in autum 2017 for the first time and have since then grown, with events featured in several locations on the island.
