Welcome to the MGS

Founded in 1962 as a friendship society and a language centre here in Penang, we strive for mutual understanding between Malaysians and Germans. We are not only a German language centre but also well known for our cultural activities such as exhibitions, movie nights and talks. In addition, we host many social events for members and friends throughout the year including our yearly Oktoberfest celebration which draws huge crowds from Penang and far beyond!

“We strive together in friendship for success!”

Kindly note the opening hours of the office, the MGS office is closed on public holidays.
