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 language in particular is a key that will open many doors for you. Courses in the German language are offered by the Goethe-Institut in many countries.

The Goethe-Institut also offers subject-specific German language courses in Germany.

With the support of the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees you can acquire more knowledge about the German language, culture and legal landscape by attending an integration course.


Chess - a game of kings

Chess - not only is it a game of kings... but could also serve as an education tool for the gifted ones. Through the German Embassy cultural fund the chess equipment for the Glen Nora Knights Chess Academy was greatly expanded.
