The discussion forum of the Karl May Foundation

“Sihdi, let’s go into a coffee-house, where I will tell you everything!”
Karl May in Von Bagdad nach Stambul (From Baghdad to Istanbul), 1892

The Karl May Foundation has been organising the “Café el Kahira” discussion forum since 2004. It allows fans of Karl May to discuss Karl May’s life and work in various sub-forums. The name is derived from the author’s fascination with all things Oriental: El Kahira is the Arab word for the city of Cairo, which means the victorious, the strong and the conqueror.

Just like in an Oriental coffee-house, we look forward to fruitful conversations and inspiring discussions!

You can access the discussion forum of the Karl May Foundation “Café el Kahira” in German here. We also offer a discussion forum in English language.
