About the Foyer²

It is no secret that there is a lack of public interiors in Prague where you can work with a good infrastructure without being committed to consumption – particularly in Prague 1. Do you want to sit down with your business partners or hold a presentation for your colleagues? Then come to the Goethe-Institut and discover the offer of the Foyer2.

While the Café Goethe is aimed at consumers and the library for visitors who work in silence for themselves, the Foyer2 is a co-working space: It provides the necessary infrastructure to sit down with a laptop, log onto the Internet, and bring along food to consume or make phone calls. In short: to work alone or in small groups with others.

A total of 121 m² of work space, flexible seating and standing space, tables, chairs, stools, a projector and a big screen – these are just a few examples of the equipment that you can use for your work in Foyer² for free. A fast Internet connection goes without saying. And on top of that there is a breathtaking view of the Prague Castle …
