Books create worlds and new ideas. They are an element that helps to shape the development of our society and its values. The key features of this work are German collective stands at the world’s most important fairs, book collections with titles from the German publishing industry that reflect people’s current concerns, book Information Centres and German Book Offices in Beijing, Moscow, New York and New Delhi. As facilitators for German culture and working closely with the Goethe-Instituts, they are competent information and service centres for both the domestic and the foreign industry.


Visit our German Collective stands and get the whole range of information on the German book market and the Frankfurt Book Fair. Our staff will be glad to inform you.

Here our experts link up the international book industry in our partner countries with the German book market. In their balancing act between culture and commerce, the Book Information Centres and the German Book Offices operate in the challenging arena between both clear representation of interests and the fulfilment of a cultural and political mission.


With a wide range of activities, the Book Information Centres and the German Book Offices encourage existing interest in German books and in so doing, promote rights & licence sales and book exports



With funding from the Federal Foreign Office, the Frankfurt Book Fair presents book collections on the German collective stands that pick up on current areas of interest. Are you interested in any of the books on display? Our colleagues on the spot will be happy to set up contacts with the German publishing companies or to advise you on how to obtain the books on show.
