The Jazzinstitut is one of the largest public jazz archives in Europe. The archive is open during our office hours . We are a small team. Eventually it may happen that we are unable to visit due to work commitments, vacation or illness. So, please call us or write an email, shortly before you plan to vist the Jazzinstitut from afar.

Filed under "archive" we introduce to some parts of our media collections.

Here you will find reviews of newly published books, a listing of all periodicals available at the Jazzinstitut, a databse referring to those recordings already catalogued, as well as an antiquarian book store in which we sell some of the doublettes of our book collection. At the moment we are developing a structure to present our visual holdings like posters, movies and photographs online.
