The book focuses on the topic of visuals for teaching culture in German language textbooks. After a theoretical background 2 investigations are presented. The aim of the first investigation was to find out what types, functions and contents of visuals for teaching culture can be identified in German textbooks for lower secondary schools. The results of a quantitative analysis indicated some common and different features of 4 selected textbooks. The aim of the second investigation was to find out teachers´ views on the functions of visuals, how teachers evaluate the visuals and to which purpose they use them. Results of 6 teacher interviews confirmed some findings of the first investigation. In respect to identified weak points of the visuals recommendations for textbook design are offered.
