Welcome to Wachholtz Verlag

Wachholtz Verlag has been a partner to science for almost 100 years. From the beginning, archaeology and history were the focus of the program. Over time, art history, geography, literary studies and the natural sciences - especially biology - were added. Our science program is continuously growing, also thanks to innovative offerings. Internationality and multilingualism have always been our focus, and we now distribute our books in more than 50 countries around the world. The books in our regional program are among the most important publications among the press and the public in the North. In the Wachholtz Science Program, we cooperate with leading scientific institutions, university chairs, collaborative research centers and clusters of excellence; renowned scientists publish in both traditional and new series.

Our books meet high standards in terms of content and aesthetics. We offer innovative services for our scientific partners. These include open access, e-books, or retro-digitization and the corresponding distribution via our partners in university libraries and the national and international scientific community.

We make books today for tomorrow!
