Welcome to the Goethe Society Wellington

History & Literature
We encourage and promote all positive means of broadening and deepening contacts between Kiwis with an interest in German and people in the German-speaking world.
Art & Music
We offer a place to meet for those who enjoy speaking German and are interested in German history, literature, art, music, films, and current events.
Films & Current Events
We have a strong link to the German Department at Te Herenga Waka—Victoria University of Wellington, and we encourage students to participate in our events.
We are an eclectic group of individuals whose aim is to promote the German language and foster interest in German culture.
Lehre tut viel, aber Aufmunterung tut alles.Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
We work closely with the Goethe-Institut of New Zealand as well as the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany here in Wellington.
