About us

First things first: ACUPARI is not a Quechua word!

Behind the acronym lies our German-Peruvian cultural institution in Cusco

ACUPARI - Asociación Cultural Peruano Alemana de la Región Inca


Inside a wonderful Spanish colonial building in the middle of the historical center of Cusco, together with patio and fountain, lies the ACUPARI Language School. The blend of colonial and Inca architecture, ancient traditions as well as impressions on the indigenous, colonial and modern coexistence in a sociocultural context is as palpable and visible in Cusco as hardly anywhere else. Amid this diversity, our Spanish, German and Quechua language school is a place for intercultural encounters and understanding. 


We are recommended by the German Embassy in Lima and the Federal Foreign Office of Germany. ACUPARI is examination licensed by the Goethe-Institut, of which it is also a partner. 

ACUPARI is a member of the school network TANDEM International. 


The honorary consuls of Germany and Austria in Cusco are part of our management team. A competent point of contact thanks to their long experience in consular matters in Peru as well as in international cooperation.


In the 28 years of ACUPARI, we have welcomed many international visitors, delegations, Spanish students and interns who've had many unforgettable experiences with us in Cusco. And often, a "see you again soon", an "I'll come back" have become reality years later. 


ACUPARI is recommended by the German Embassy in Lima and the Federal Foreign Office of Germany. 


Our cultural institution is a partner of the Goethe-Institut.


And a member of the school network TANDEM International.


ACUPARI supports its Children's Book Project with its language courses.
