The Embassy of the Republic of Germany in Slovenia promotes cooperation and bilateral political, economic and cultural relations between Slovenia and Germany and provides a range of consular services.

The Embassy is also a promoter of German culture in Slovenia, facilitating bilateral cooperation in this field. The basis for formal cultural relations was an Agreement between the Government of the Republic of Slovenia and the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany on Cooperation in Culture signed in 1994. In June 1995 a German reading room was opened in the Central Technological Library, University of Ljubljana with over 5.000 media units and in 2004 the Goethe-Institut Ljubljana was established as an important platform for developing intercultural exchange.

Stipends and German language support

The DAAD scholarships are awarded annually in different areas of research, including humanities. A lecturer from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) works at the German department of the University of Ljubljana, and a DAAD language assistant at the University of Maribor.

A number of Slovene grammar schools offer a German language diploma programme. It has been supported by the Central Agency for Schools Abroad (ZfA) and the Goethe Institute and coordinated by the Slovene National Education Institute [Zavod za šolstvo RS].
