The Chinese Cultural Center Berlin (CKB) is a cultural institution of the People's Republic of China. According to the cultural agreement between the two governments, the status of CKB corresponds to the Goethe-Institute in China.
We want to give the public in Germany a better understanding of the Chinese culture, art and education. Our goal is to support the cultural exchange, mutual understanding and friendly relations as well as the cooperation between the two countries.
In the cultural center we provide a platform for Chinese art and culture, a window that offers a view to the Middle Kingdom, which links the people of both nations together.
The cultural center opened on 26 May 2008 in Berlin's embassy district near Tiergarten. Covering an area of 2,800 m² locals and guest of the capital are able to get a wide information about the culture of China. Besides exhibitions, readings, lectures and concerts, there are also films and high-caliber theater performances presented from professional Chinese artists.
