Goethe-Institut Johannesburg

The Goethe-Institut is the German cultural centre in Johannesburg, offering German language courses & cultural events. As Germany’s globally active cultural institute, we encourage international cultural cooperation, promote knowledge of the German language abroad and convey a comprehensive image of Germany. Our work looks at a deeper understanding of cultures. We engage in a dialogue rooted in partnership, acting with no political affiliations.

The Gamebox at the Goethe-Institut offers the ideal environment to get to know and try out new digital games. We permanently offer and expand a curated selection of games from Germany and sub-Saharan Africa. Technical features such as an ultra-high definition screen, Playstation 4 with virtual reality headsets, the Xbox One and Nintendo Switch offer ideal conditions to engage in new games and have new experiences.

Partners of the Gamebox are the Digital Arts Department of WITS University, AMAZE Festival, Fak’ugesi Festival and many more!
