History

The DTG was founded in the year 1997 as a literary association. Since 1998 the domicile of the DTG is in Cologne. It steadily grew up to its current member count of about 550 people, especially from Germany or German-speaking countries.

Gatherings

The DTG organises a number of Tolkien events. Every year the Tolkien Thing (Tolkien Moot), a meeting of the DTG members, takes place in summer. The Tolkien Tage (Tolkien Days) are a weekend with seminars, lectures, games, performances and other activities for all Tolkien-fans. Since 2004 the Tolkien Seminar takes place yearly in different german cities. The Tolkien Seminar is somekind of academic convention, where german Tolkien-experts lecture and then dicuss with the participants about the same theme, based on Tolkien's works. A regional event is the Tolkien Stammtisch (Tolkien regulars' table). The meetings takes place regularly (usually once per month). The Tolkien Stammtisch is something like a regional representation of the DTG and allows potential members the first contact with the association.

Publications

Three times a year the DTG publishes its association magazine Der Flammifer von Westernis (including an English Summary). The most important publication is the scientific journal Hither Shore.
