Press & Media
Our virtual Press Room is a special service to journalists, making available the latest German Embassy press releases and other e-services, contact information, and additional resources. Be sure to also browse our overview of exchange programs and fellowship for journalists, allowing you to study and/or work in Germany.
The German Embassy's Press Department is the first stop for journalists seeking information on government positions or other issues of interest to journalists (Phone: 202-298-4251 or -4247). Alternatively, you can also contact the Press Officer of the Consulate General nearest to you.
The Press Department sends out press releases on a regular basis, drawing particular attention to selected news, interviews, statements, and speeches.
The German Embassy regularly organizes German-American workshops for young journalists in Washington, DC, and Berlin, inviting participants from leading journalism schools in both countries.
At least six institutions and organizations offer opportunities for American journalists to work and/or study in Germany. Most of the programs do not require that you speak German in order to be eligible. Others offer German language classes to prepare you for your stay in Germany.
Germany has a vast and prolific media industry. Our media link list provides you with an overview of major German print, radio and TV outlets in Germany and the US as well as information on German Wire Services, Associations and Councils, and more.
