Publishing, Printing and Services at Our Core

Our history began in 1838 with the founding of the Westermann Verlag, which went on to publish the first Diercke Atlas in 1883. Since then, the Westermann Verlag has joined forces with a number of other publishers to form today’s Westermann Gruppe. Now we are one of Germany’s leading educational publishing groups.

As well as our comprehensive product range for schools, we also provide a broad selection of products for early learning and private study. Other members of the Westermann Gruppe create educational media for the wider German-speaking world, as well as the international market.

However, there is more to us than meets the eye. We include Arena, the children’s and young adult publisher. Alongside respected publishing houses, the Westermann Gruppe also includes two modern printing plants and a logistics company. Our publishing products are produced environmentally friendly in our own plants in Germany and distributed from Braunschweig. The Westermann printing and logistics services are also available to customers outside our company.
