On the 14th of January 1845, six young physicists from the ‘Gustav Magnus Kolloquium’ started the Physikalische Gesellschaft zu Berlin. Over the years, this developed into the largest physical society in the world. With over 55 000 members the DPG, the Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft now celebrates its 175th anniversary. The DPG will use this anniversary year to elucidate the importance of physics in and for society at large. The kick-off of the festivities took place on January 14th in the Magnus-Haus in Berlin, with many invited high-ranking officials. As a special highlight a unique historical photo (a ‘Daguerreotypie’) of the six founding fathers was unveiled at this occasion. The main celebration will be on June 6th, with several distinguished speakers like the President of the Deutsche Bundestag, Dr. Wolfgang Schäuble, and Nobel Laureate Klaus von Klitzing.
