German-American Institute Tuebingen

Our customer-focused mission:

The German-American Institute (GAI) Tuebingen offers residents from the administrative region Tuebingen comprehensive and detailed information about the United States, German-American as well as European-American relations.

To do so, our event programming reflects the variety of both cultures and contributes to  have a better understanding of ideals and values. Through our library we provide the public with mostly English-language media.

As an institution we encourage people of all nationalities to get connected through encounters at our cultural events and youth exchanges. We also organize study tours and educational trips to intensify the relationships between Germans and Americans. Our unique selling point in the region is that we offer language training taught exclusively by native speakers of following languages: English, Spanish, and German as Foreign Language. We cover all levels of proficiency and cater to all age groups.

Connected with our programming is the EducationUSA Advising Center that offers people to get information on study abroad opportunities (high school, au pair, service learning, undergraduate or graduate studies, internships) in the U.S. We can be found at the GAI during our opening hours, at educational fairs in the Neckar-Alb region as well as online during virtual hours and at online-only events. For further information, please visit our website or send us an e-mail.
