Welcome to the Carl-Schurz-Haus

The German-American Institute was established in 1952 as an Amerika-Haus.  Since the 1960s, the Carl-Schurz-Haus has been a bi-national cultural center that organizes approximately 250 events throughout the year related to current topics and points of discussion.  At the Carl-Schurz-Haus, all those interested in either America or culture can come together in discussion and dialog by means of talks, lectures and lessons, workshops, and readings.  In addition, the Carl-Schurz-Haus offers the benefits of an American library with more than 12,000 titles, 5,000 films, more than 100 audio books, and 50 periodicals.  The German-American Institute offers student and English language course counseling for opportunities abroad - in the United States as well as other English-speaking nations.  English courses taught exclusively by native speakers of the English language are also offered.
