Welcome to the Berlin website of the German Studies Center (ZDS) at Peking University!


The ZDS is an interdisciplinary institution at Peking University that in close collaboration, particularly with Freie Universität Berlin and Humboldt Universität Berlin, focuses on Germany-related topics in teaching and research. At the same time the ZDS plays an important role for Sino-German academic and cultural exchange. It belongs to the network of 20 Centers for German and European Studies worldwide that are currently or were formerly funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) through funds of the German Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
