The Gelnhäuser Neue Zeitung , founded in 1988, is a daily newspaper published in the Main-Kinzig district and based in Gelnhausen . The sold circulation is 10,734 copies, an increase of 22.2 percent since 1998. It is published by Druck- und Pressehaus Naumann. The Gelnhäuser Neue Zeitung has been part of the Madsack media group since 2007.


On January 16, 1988 the first edition of the Gelnhäuser Neue Zeitung - GNZ for short -, Germany's youngest daily newspaper, appeared. A “dream print run” of 80,000 copies was printed for two weeks. For free and to get to know each other, the GNZ was distributed to every household in the region. The printing and press house Naumann was initially based in Freigericht-Altenmittlau. In 1994 the company moved to the former US barracks site in Gelnhausen. March 18, 1996 marks a historic day in the company history of Druck- und Pressehaus Naumann: Federal Chancellor Helmut Kohl himself put the new press into operation at the push of a button and named it "Ecoman". In the following years the company expanded continuously; contrary to the trend on the newspaper market, the circulation is growing. In January 2013 the GNZ - for years the largest daily newspaper in the region - celebrated its 25th birthday.


In contrast to most German daily newspapers , the Gelnhäuser Neue Zeitung has been able to increase its circulation in recent years. The circulation sold has increased by an average of 2.4% per year over the past 10 years. In contrast, it fell by 3.8% last year. It is currently 10,734 copies. The share of subscriptions in the circulation sold is 94 percent.

Development of the number of copies sold


The Gelnhäuser Neue Zeitung reports mainly on the old district of Gelnhausen and the municipalities of Langenselbold and Bad Soden-Salmünster .


The GNZ appears from Monday to Saturday. The Naumann printing and press house also publishes the free weekly newspapers Der Mittelhessen-Bote (Wednesdays) and Der Neue Markt (on weekends).
