Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern will meet German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier during his visit to New Zealand next week.

The visit reciprocates then-Prime Minister Bill English's visit to Berlin in early 2017.

"I am very much looking forward to meeting President Steinmeier as Germany is an important international partner for New Zealand," Ardern said in a statement.

"His visit will further underscore the warm and constructive relationship that exists between our two countries following the visit of Chancellor [Angela] Merkel in 2014."


President Steinmeier will visit from this Sunday, November 5, until Tuesday 7 November. He will be accompanied by his wife Elke B├╝denbender.

The visit will include engagements in Wellington and Auckland and a State Dinner at Government House in Wellington.
