About

Humboldt-Balkan-Cosmos is a project of the Department of the South Slavic Languages and Cultures of the Institute of Slavic and Hungarian Studies at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.

The name is intended to recall the famous Cosmos Lectures by Wilhelm von Humboldt. Just as he wanted to draw attention to the manifold interrelationships in nature, the aim of this project is to uncover the diversity and subtle ties to be found in the Balkans.

This website is a platform for the results that we have gathered on various excursions, workshops and field trips.

All project are organized by Christian Voß and Philipp Wasserscheidt.


We are deeply indebted to the DAAD for its generous and flexible support in our work. The biggest help is the programme “Hochschuldialog mit den Ländern des westlichen Balkans“. We also use Erasmus+ funds.


Responsible for the design and content of the website is Philipp Wasserscheidt.
