The German Sociological Association (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Soziologie, DGS) organizes social scientists in Germany. It was founded January 3, 1909, at Berlin by its initiators Rudolf Goldscheid (1870–1931), Ferdinand Tönnies, Max Weber, Georg Simmel, et al. First president was Tönnies, forced out of office by the Nazis, 1933.

The DGS is still flourishing, with about 1800 members (2010).
