About Stiftung Warentest
Stiftung Warentest was founded in 1964 by decision of the German Bundestag in order to offer consumers independent and objective support through comparative tests of goods and services.
It tests products and services according to scientific methods in independent institutes and publishes the results in its publications. As an independent foundation under civil law, it is free to plan tests and to develop and apply its test criteria. It buys products anonymously from retailers and uses services undercover.
Vergleich.org is a regular consumer magazine and offers its readers comprehensive advice on buying products and services for everyday needs. Free guides and comparison tables help readers make the right small and large purchasing decisions.
This means that the team of experienced journalists reaches over 3,400,000 consumers every month. The publisher of Vergleich.org is VGL Verlagsgesellschaft, based in Berlin.
