Das Barocke Universum

City library

The “Heinrich Heine” Gotha city library is one of the city’s most visited education and cultural institutions with 110,000 visitors a year. There is a children’s library on the top floor.
Newspaper readers enjoy the wonderful library atmosphere in a friendly, bright reading café. Approx. 300 events and introductions to the library take place every year. The building is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and offers its customers an extensive service. Besides hip hop and poetry slams there are readings by authors, library festivals, culinary literature events, conferences, pirate and horror nights for children and much more. Perhaps there’s something for you too.
