German-Baltic Society e.V.

German-Baltic Society e.V.

As a bridge to the Baltic States, our association has been committed to the European idea of the encounter of cultures and bringing people together for 70 years.


The German-Baltic Society (DBGes) was founded in 1950 as the German-Baltic Landsmannschaft i.B. e.V., an association of Baltic Germans from Estonia and Latvia. Its headquarters are in the Reinhard-Zinkann-Haus, the House of the Baltic Germans, in Darmstadt. The DBGes' main aim is to preserve and communicate the cultural heritage of the Germans from present-day Latvia and Estonia and organises meetings and conferences in Germany and the Baltic States for this purpose.



The House of the Baltic Germans in Darmstadt

The imposing villa "Haus Haardteck" at Herdweg 79 is a listed building and was built in 1898 according to plans by Heinrich Metzendorf. At the end of the 19th century, the architect combined elements of historicism with the then new Art Nouveau style. Particularly beautiful details are the sandstone relief on the entrance side with a dragon slayer as a motif, the small fountain in the courtyard and numerous details inside.


In the vernacular, the villa is still called "Pillenburg" today, because its first owner was the son-in-law of the factory owner and pharmaceutical manufacturer Merck. Until 1943, the villa was used as a private residence, after which it served as the headquarters of various offices and, from 1952, as an old people's home for the German Red Cross. In 1983, the owner families Zinkann and Hector handed over the property to the Baltic Germans - since then it has been used in many ways as a conference and meeting centre.
