The Goethe Card is your student ID card at Goethe University. The multi-functional smart card makes student life more convenient by combining a variety of functions on a single card. It is not only a student ID but also a library card, a payment card for the cafeteria, a key for lockers and an admission ticket for the Palmengarten and numerous museums throughout Frankfurt.
The digital semester ticket will be available from summer semester 2024. This will replace the previous ticket imprint on the Goethe Card.
Validation of the Goethe Card will still be possible and necessary in the future (for its validity as a student ID card). However, due to the changeover to the digital ticket, it will take place at a later date than usual. Validation for the summer semester will be possible starting April 1st.
