The Deutsche Akademie für Sprache und Dichtung was founded on 28 August 1949, on the 200th birthday of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, in the Paulskirche in Frankfurt. It is seated in Darmstadt. It is a society of writers and scholars on matters pertaining to German language and literature in the German sprachraum.
Since 1951 it has awarded the Georg Büchner Prize, the most important literary prize in the German language. Another prize, the Sigmund Freud Prize, was instituted in memory of Sigmund Freud in 1964. That same year, the annual Friedrich-Gundolf-Preis was instituted for the promotion of German culture in foreign countries, in memory of Friedrich Gundolf.
