Welcome to Deutsches Haus, New York’s leading institution for the culture and language of the German-speaking world. Located in the historic Greenwich Village district, Deutsches Haus is an integral part of New York University. Since 1977, it has provided New Yorkers with a unique forum for cultural, intellectual, and artistic exchange with Germany, Austria, and Switzerland through its three pillars: the language program, the cultural program, and the children's program.

Language: We are dedicated to meeting our students' diverse and ever-changing motivations for learning German. Our students receive the best instruction possible through our small class sizes (typically between 6-12 students) and innovative, thoughtful, and creative German language lessons (in-person and online) delivered by our team of highly qualified and experienced teachers. We also offer private tutoring for individuals and small groups at a variety of locations across New York City.
Culture: Our exhibitions, talks, concerts, conferences, readings, and film screenings attract a diverse and involved audience of New Yorkers, interested in today’s artistic and intellectual agenda. Deutsches Haus serves as a platform for encounters between artists, writers, scientists, thinkers, and academics engaged with the German-speaking world.
Children: Deutsches Haus offers fun classes and educational activities for children, including the celebration of traditional festivities around St. Martin, St. Nicholas, Carnival, and Easter. The children's program continues to create a sense of community among families who share an interest in German, Austrian, and Swiss culture.
All classes and events are open to the public.
