German Institute in Paris – Franco-German history

Walking again through my favourite neighbourhood in Paris, I saw that beautiful brick building with a clean and appealing court. I discovered then this is the Institut Historique Allemand, or German History Institute. This is yet another example of the collaboration of two countries which once were enemies.

The Institute is part of a foundation, the Max Weber Stiftung and is located at a beautiful house in the center of Le Marais. It is a nice place to pass by and spend a few minutes in its courtyard take a picture and eventually sit for a few seconds in its benches and think about what history brought to those two countries. The building hosts an interesting library and is where many researchers work. It’s focused on history, in particular Franco-German history, and as such it is quite specialized.

Currently the Institute is not offering anymore public conferences but there are special seminars and webinars if you are deeply interested in history. You can find the programme in their website.
