The Augsburger Allgemeine Zeitung is a major Germanmarker regional daily newspaper published since 1945.

History

The newspaper was first published on 30 October 1945 under the name of Schwäbische Landeszeitung, under the initiative of Curt Frenzel. Originally, due to the restrictions in early post-war Germany, it was only published twice-weekly. Frenzel had received a licence to publish a newspaper from Colonel Bernhard MacMahon of the US military government in Bavaria.

After Curt Frenzels death in 1970, his daughter Ellinor Holland continued the newspaper that was renamed to Augsburger Allgemeine on 1 November 1959. The newspaper and publishing company are still fully owned by the Holland family and now managed by the third generation.

In the second quarter of 2008, the newspaper sold 344,537 copies.

From 1807 to 1882, a Allgemeine Zeitung was published in Augsburg but it is not connected to the later newspaper.
