The Malaysian-German Society Penang was established in 1962 by a handful of dedicated and far-sighted Malaysians and Germans residing in Penang and has gained over the years the respect and support of the State Government of Penang. Through its activities the Society has built up good Malaysian-German relations.
The Society in its efforts to promote friendship and understanding between locals and Germans in Penang have organised various functions both cultural and social to bring people together and exposing them to both the cultures of Malaysia and Germany. Thus through the years numerous concerts were held bringing well-known German musicians and orchestras to our shores. German cultural festivities were celebrated with members and friends with the hope that Malaysians would understand better the culture of Germany. At the same time Malaysian festivals were also celebrated with local cultural shows to project the diversity of the Malaysian culture to our German members.
The Society is very fortunate to have the unfailing support of the German Embassy and the Goethe-Institute Kuala Lumpur all these years. The Goethe-Institute in particular, has been invaluable in assisting the Society to invite musicians to perform for us in Penang. We must also express our special thanks to the Goethe-Institute in their help with regards to our German language classes plus providing us with German films and German art for members to learn and enjoy German culture.
In more recent years the Society saw it befitting to embark into a new aspect of its activities. Activities organised by the Society had the support of many Penangites and the German community in Penang for without that, the Society’s efforts would have been in vain.Learn More
