Summary/Abstract: The text presents opportunities to use digital media and technology when working with literary texts in teaching German as a foreign language. In this context is being discussed the importance of digital media and their hermeneutic and didactic useful properties (accessibility, multimediality/hypermediality, interactivity). Based on theoretical and methodological literature are presented different opportunities for using various electronic resources, educational materials, electronic applications, platforms, tools, functions, types of tasks. In this way we support the argument that didactic use of digital media complements and enriches the traditional repertoire of learning activities when working with foreign language literature texts. The goal is not only of building a common communication skills of those who study a foreign language, but also of stimulating their creative thinking and behavior, of building conscious and autonomous learners and developing aesthetic and media competence. The conclusion is that to achieve these goals in the current language learning practice through literature are mostly used the "accessibility" and "multimediality/hypermediality" properties of digital media. In recent times is often utilized and the "interactivity". The existing studies often try to comply both with innovative ways of teaching and communication, as well as aesthetic qualities of literary works.
