Historical Newspapers

With the Deutsches Zeitungsportal (German Newspaper Portal), the Deutsche Digitale Bibliothek has created a central point of access to historical newspapers free of charge. Readers can search for newspapers here by title, year, or place of publication and filter them according to various criteria. The newspapers date from 1671 to 1950 and 84% of them are full text, i.e. they are searchable. The portal is still under construction and will be constantly enriched with further newspapers and improved in handling.
