Goethe-Institut is the global cultural institute of the Federal Republic of Germany. There are about 150 such institutes worldwide. In Indonesia, we are present with institutes in Jakarta and Bandung. A smaller, so-called Goethe-Center represents us in Surabaya.

The three main objectives of our work are: To provide access to the German language abroad; to develop a multilateral cultural programme; and to offer relevant media and information resources.
