The Tivoli Congress took place in 1892 and was named after the Tivoli Brewery on the Kreuzberg in Berlin in whose festival venue the German Conservative Party first adopted anti-semitism as part of its political programme

At the Tivoli Congress only Werner von Blumenthal opposed the adoption of anti-semitism. From the congress the Tivoli Programme was developed. This was a party manifesto whose first clause included the words "We fight against the often obtrusive and corrosive Jewish influence on our national life. We demand Christian authorities for the Christian people and Christian teachers for Christian students."
