Germany for people learning German

Learning German isn’t as difficult as many people think. And what better time to learn a new language than now? Whether you use apps, YouTube, digital games or German music: use the time at home and improve your language skills.

Germany for music fans

Perhaps you always wanted to dive into Berlin's night-life? Now's your chance! Under the hashtag #UnitedWeStream, Berlin's clubs are streaming DJ sets live on Instagram every day from 7pm onwards – without any risk of infection.

A broad programme of online live concerts is also offered on the Dringeblieben website. Their programme has the right concert for everyone.

Lovers of classical music are not being left empty handed either in these Corona crisis times. Why not invite the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra to your living room? Up until 31 March, you can access the 'digitalconcerthall' for free and experience classical music live within your own four walls.

Germany for culture lovers

Whether it's plays, readings or a look behind the scenes: more and more theatres, authors and museums are making their programmes available online. One example is the Munich Residenztheater's diary of a closed theatre. Here, the ensemble document what happens backstage.

If you prefer to be entertained from the stage, pay a visit to the Münchner Kammerspiele. Every day the theatre puts a recording of a production online for 24 hours.

And if you prefer to have everything in one place, we recommend a visit to the new social channel One Munich. Although still under construction, the channel will soon be showing concerts, readings and panel discussions with artists from all over Germany who are now unemployed.

Germany for gourmets

You can experience Germany not only on your PC, but also in your kitchen. At German Foods you can learn to cook lots of traditional German dishes. Here you can find everything that German cuisine has to offer.

Germany for animal lovers

Whether it's an owl or a rabbit, at Tierwebcams you can peep into the nests of different animals in Germany – live.

If you prefer a bit more action, you can also go on a 360-degree tour of Leipzig Zoo. You won't get live pictures, but you can check out the whole zoo – from the bear enclosures to the terrariums.
