Austrian Institute Celebrates 10th Anniversary

Hannes Richter

Since 1997 some 83,000 participants learned German through courses offered by the Austrian Institute. Over the last ten years, the Austrian Institute (Österreich Institut GmbH) has become a trademark for learning about Austria through German language courses offered throughout Central and Eastern European countries.
Currently about 10,000 participants are learning German annually at one of the Austrian Institutes in seven different countries. There are institutes located in Bratislava, Brno, Budapest, Istanbul, Cracow, Ljubljana, Rome, Warsaw and Wroclaw. As Brigitte Ortner, General Manager of the Austrian Institute points out, “the Austrian Institute makes Austria visible as a German-speaking country and part of the European Union.” The students not only improve their knowledge of German but also acquire profound knowledge of Austria.
