Visiting information 2022


The hub of the festival activity is located at Museum Wiesbaden, at Friedrich-Ebert-Allee 2. Members of the competent goEast team can be found at the info counter there, from mornings to evenings, to help with any questions regarding the programme, the city or lodging. In addition, festival passes and goEast publications are available here as well.

The Festival Centre is also the first point of contact for both international and accredited industry guests, while the press counter serves the same purpose for journalists.


Wed, 20.04 – Sun, 24.04 / 10:00 am – 8:00 pm

Mon, 25.04 / 10:00 am – 3:00 pm


During the day, festival attendees have the chance to chat and share their festival impressions over a cup of coffee in Café Mechtild. In the evening, the goEast festival bar becomes a meeting place for filmmakers, festival guests and attendees alike. Highly recommended here: the Eastern European inspired vodka drinks from our friendly bar team in the “Ost Kiosk”!

Tues, 19.04 – Sun, 24.04 / 10:00 am – 6:00 pm


The original Slovenian K67 Kiosk is back! From 12 April, you can treat yourself to initial info on the festival programme and a coffee from the kiosk staff. During the festival week, you can get comfortable on the museum staircase from 7 pm on, with a beer, alcohol-free beverages or a long drink of your choice.

Tue, 19.04 – Mon, 25.04 / 10:00 am – midnight


In compliance with the safety measures to impede the spread of the coronavirus relevant for the festival, all attendees are obliged to wear a medical-grade face covering inside all of the festival venues.


In collaboration with our partner Filmwerte, goEast is once again bringing the festival to your living room. Selected films from this year’s programme can be watched in the comfort of your own home throughout Germany. Viewers must first create an account in order to access the platform.

In 2021, goEast began to make the catalogues and Symposium essays from past festival editions available for free online. The CEEOL GmbH, the operator of the Central and Eastern European Online Library, based in Frankfurt, has been supporting the festival in these efforts.
CEEOL provides both institutional and individual access to periodicals, eBooks and grey literature in the area of the social sciences and humanities from Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe, making the data bank a trusted partner for years for academics, students and teachers specialising in Eastern European subject matter. The goEast catalogue texts from the festival years 2001-2021 have now been incorporated here and can be read in their entirety at
