DUMONT Kalenderverlag

The publishing house and its history

For DUMONT a calendar has been more than just 12 pictures for about 60 years. With around 200 titles published annually, DUMONT Kalenderverlag is one of the leading calendar publishers in Germany. Calendars for children have been an essential and successful part of the program for more than 15 years.


Wall decoration for children’s rooms!

When choosing our subjects we prefer to use illustrated children's books and cooperate closely with children's book publishers. We hang children's books on the wall, one might say. Brand new are Torben Kuhlmanns calendar titled Mäuseabenteuer in cooperation with NordSüd Verlag, an XXL-planner with rhymes and illustrations by Daniela Kulot, Piotr Sochas Trees or Pierre the maze detective.

Back in 2002 the first calendar of The Small Hare Felix was published in cooperation with Coppenrath. Since then, many other characters have found their home in a DUMONT calendar: Pippi Longstocking, the characters of Otfried Preußler or the Brambly Hedge mice. The wall calendar Maps (Moritz Verlag) is a great success since several years. Especially, the swarm pictures by Rotraut Susanne Berner or Ali Mitgutsch which we publish in close collaboration with Gerstenberg and Ravensburger are predestined for large format wall calendars. Our program is supplemented by TV-based licensing topics such as The Mouse or Shaun the Sheep that are most successful as family calendars.

The passion for detail and our many years of experience make every DUMONT calendar somewhat special which is demonstrated by many awards. Dieter Brauns postersize calendar Die Welt der Tiere 2020 was awarded one of only three gold medals at the gregor calendar award 2019 and has been voted audience favorite.
