DFF Archive Center

The DFF’s research facility is located close to the Goethe University and the DFF Library and Text Archive in the German National Library. Our Archive Center offers researchers optimal access to the collections of the DFF.

Please note, that it is possible that individual holdings or specific archival materials may be restricted or temporarily unavailable for use for legal or conservation reasons. In some cases, it may be necessary to clarify the terms of use for specific materials before your visit. Our staff is happy to provide you with information regarding your request. Please allow sufficient lead time. There is no general right of access to the archives or collections.

The rooms on Eschersheimer Landstrasse are available for rent throughout the year for lectures, presentations and other public programs, as well as for private events.
