Amerikazentrum Hamburg

Amerikazentrum Hamburg (America Center Hamburg) is a bi-national cultural institution that supports German-American educational and cultural exchanges. It is sponsored by the nonprofit association Amerikazentrum Hamburg e.V. and supported by the U.S. Embassy and the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg. The focuses of the center’s activities are on events, such as conferences, lectures and discussions on current political and social issues of the transatlantic dialogue, as well as readings, exhibitions and film screenings. Another essential part of our work is providing information and advice on study and exchange opportunities as a certified EducationUSA Advising Center.
