Die Welt

Daily newspaper


Die Welt is a national daily founded in the British occupied zone in Hamburg after WWII. In 1993 it relocated its headquarters to Berlin. In 2012, Die Welt was the first national daily newspaper in Germany to introduce a payment subscription system for its website. In 2015, the editorial offices of Die Welt and the TV station N24 were merged to produce multimedia news. Since then, their motto has been “online first”, meaning that all articles are published on the website immediately.
