On August 3, 1848, the German Gymnastics Federation (DTB) was founded in Hanau on the initiative of  August SCHAERTTNER, also the first chairman of DTB. On the occasion of the 175th DTB Foundation Day, a festive event took place the day before in the Paulskirche in Frankfurt / Main in front of approx. 450 invited guests. In her speech, the German Minister of the Interior Nancy FAESER pointed out the high social importance of the second largest German sports association, in which almost 40% of its members are children and young people, and in whose 22 sports and disciplines of popular and competitive sports the enormous diversity and importance for health and personality development of a modern society is expressed.
