The Edel Publishing Group is one of Germany’s largest independent book providers. The diversity of our publishing programme has won us a wide readership, a prime commercial presence and the top spot when it comes to cookery books. Our popular non-fiction titles regularly feature on bestseller lists, and our health & lifestyle books are widely stocked.

Edel Books

Read about fascinating people and interesting sports, culture and general knowledge topics. We love bestsellers, and we want to get as many people as possible passionate about reading them too.

Edel Kids Books

We publish imaginatively written children’s books by successful authors and about well-known characters from the big and small screen. Edel Kids Books – it’s a big world out there!

Eden Books

We love cats, coffee and catchy concepts. Our books are about people who have something special to tell us, because it’s life that writes the best stories.

Edel Elements

Our label specifically for e-books – both reprints and new editions. From love stories to crime thrillers to historical novels, we simply love light fiction.


Our passion is for cooking, health & fitness, and self-help & personal development: fascinating topics, popular writers and beautiful volumes all with a great love of detail.


‟Quality is the best recipe for success,” has been Dr. Oetker’s motto for more than 125 years. Our new Dr. Oetker books follow in this tradition, but also set new trends.

GBN Trends

We’re young and dynamic, just like our influencers. You’ll find our diverse range of books on food, beauty, lifestyle, DIY and fitness widely available on all social media.


We publish books about contemporary art, photography, architecture and design. Our books are produced in Germany, but are available around the world.


We believe in the power of a good story. Our books are about everyday heroes, captains weathering a storm, fishers on the Bering Sea or sailors around the Cape Horn. Whatever we do, our heart and the sea is in it.


The Edel Publishing Group’s strength comes from our long-standing expertise and our positioning as a leading media group. We devise integrated strategies, production processes, and physical and digital sales, and we have a state-of-the-art printing works on-site. Our sales team, which is responsible for internal and external publishing programmes, and our digital imprints round off our profile as a highly versatile publishing house.
