St. Goarshausen: Katz Castle in autumn

Welcome to the German Embassy in Harare!

In Germany, the "Land of Ideas", we place major emphasis on education, science, research and development. This makes Germany one of the most popular countries in which to study, as well as a site for state-of-the art research and patent development. With its high quality of life, good infrastructure and central location in Europe, Germany is one of the world's most attractive bases for business. Its beautiful urban and rural landscapes, combining age-old traditions and experimental modern culture, make a trip to Germany a unique experience. Germany has something for everyone, so why not pay us a visit?

The German Embassy Harare has a fund which supports small scale anti-poverty projects by Zimbabwean Non-Governmental Organizations, associations, interest groups and communities. Each year, 10 to 15 projects are supported through the Embassy's Small Scale Project Fund.
