The Bauer Media Group: One of the World's leading media companies and Europe's largest magazine publisher.

About us: Bauer Media Group.


'WE THINK POPULAR': our tag-line gets right to the point in just three words. We are the company for popular culture, representing all of the important issues that accompany people throughout their lives. As a media-maker, our greatest incentive is to move you with our stories. This includes knowing what is going to be popular tomorrow, today. We recognise the trends – and interpret them so they are accessible for everyone.


We are passionate about our strong media brands. Our fundamentals are innovative creative magazine concepts and an outstanding knowledge of the relevant target groups: they made us successful in the magazine business and require modern journalism with the highest standards of quality. We deploy them continuously to move forward and establish new attractive brands such as digital products and radio programmes.



Whether in print, online or mobile: our brand family delights people all over the world. The Bauer Media Group is one of the world's leading media houses, as well as Europe's largest magazine publisher. We shape the market with our publications and coverage:  our excellence, our breadth and our market depth.


And what makes us particularly special? The Bauer Media Group is a family-owned company. Publisher Yvonne Bauer is the fifth generation of her family to manage the company. Mature structures and continuity on the one hand; independence and flexibility on the other. This is what makes us a competitive and forward-thinking company.
