The Goethe-Institute is the Federal Republic of Germany’s cultural institute, active worldwide. We promote the study of German abroad and encourage international cultural exchange.
The Goethe-Institutes in India, founded in 1957, were named after this founder of Indology in honor of the inter-cultural sympathies and understanding he had nurtured through his saintly quest for a common Indo-European brotherhood. In a globalized world, where the need for understanding between cultures gains increasing significance, nothing conveys this message in the history of Indo-German relations better than the life and works of Fredrich Max Mueller. They strengthen the development of structures in civil society and foster worldwide mobility.
