Tageblatt is a German language Luxembourgish daily newspaper published in Esch-sur-Alzette by Editpress.

History and profile[edit]

Tageblatt was established in 1913.[1] The paper is the country's second-most popular newspaper,[2] behind the rival d'Wort. It describes itself as the Zeitung fir Lëtzebuerg (Luxembourgish for 'the newspaper for Luxembourg'). Although it is mainly published in German, it has also sections published in French language.[1]

The daily is owned by socialist trade unions.[2] The publisher is Editpress, which also publishes Le Jeudi and Le Quotidien.[3] As of 2007 the daily had close relations with the Socialist Party (LSAP).[2]

In 2004, Tageblatt had a daily circulation of 17,106: about one-quarter that of d'Wort. Its readership is 61,100, or just over one-third that of its rival's.[4]

The newspaper received €1,659,554 in annual state press subsidy in 2009: more than any other newspaper.[5]
