The Deutsche Rundschau has at times significantly influenced German politics as well as literature and culture and was considered to be one of the “most successful journal start-ups” in Germany. So published Theodor Fontane 's Effi Briest , Theodor Storm 's Schimmelreiter and contemporaries such as Paul Heyse , Gottfried Keller , Conrad Ferdinand Meyer and Ernst Robert Curtius their works in this journal.

After Rodenberg's death, Bruno Hake became its editor, followed by Rudolf Pechel in 1919 . Up until the Second World War , the magazine was the mouthpiece of the young conservatives and later the conservative opponents of National Socialism . From 1933 to 1942 the editor and writer Paul Fechter was co-editor of the magazine.

In April 1942 Pechel was arrested and the magazine was banned by the Reich Security Main Office . Four years later the Deutsche Rundschau appeared again with Rudolf Pechel as editor. After Pechel's death, his sons Jürgen and Peter Pechel and Harry Pross continued to run the magazine until 1964. Burghard Freudenfeld and Hans-Joachim Netzer most recently edited the Deutsche Rundschau .


The "contemporary continuation of a traditional monthly, the Deutsche Rundschau" is the multilingual online magazine edited by Heinrich von Loesch under the name - Deutsche Rundschau . The title thus remains anchored in the family tradition: Heinrich von Loesch is the (half) brother of Peter and Jürgen Pechel.
