Loewe Verlag

The publishing house and its history

Loewe Verlag has been publishing books out of passion for over 150 years! Its credo is to publish books that children and young people want to read. Because reading is a central competence in our society, which Loewe wants to convey with innovative concepts and exciting stories. Loewe Verlag is one of the leading publishers of children's and young adult books in Germany.

The traditional "Leselöwen" brand has been turning first-time readers into reading professionals for over 45 years and is constantly being developed further. Classics such as "Das magische Baumhaus", "Die Gespensterjäger" and "Skulduggery Pleasant" are at home in the independent publishing house. Authors such as Ursula Poznanski, Sonja Kaiblinger and Karl Olsberg inspire their readers and are part of a book program that offers pure reading pleasure for everyone from the age of 6 months.

The traditional company has been owner-managed since it was founded in 1863. Christoph Gondrom, the 3rd generation of the Gondrom family, joined the management team in 2012. He has managed the publishing house since 2016.

Program

Whether it's the "Loewe von Anfang an" early learning program, the "Leselöwen" first-reading concept or the innovative "Loewe Graphix" series, Loewe Verlag's books are designed to meet the needs of children, young people and their families - for holistic reading promotion.

In 2021, Loewe Verlag launched the new adult label "Loewe Intense". The stories of "Loewe Intense" focus on self-discovery, love and passion as well as the first step towards independence by starting university, training or entering professional life. Strong and independent protagonists search for their place in life and find love in all its facets.

Anticipating social developments and recognizing trends at an early stage is one of the guiding principles behind the program design. This is because the publisher wants its content to reflect the reality of life for children, teenagers and young adults. For this reason, the program also includes children's and young adult books on topics such as sustainability, environmental protection and artificial intelligence as well as gender identity, racism and discrimination.
