A little bit about us...

Our club was founded on January 10th, 1981, after we had gotten the approval to do so from John and his office in late December 1980 - today we are the only official John Denver club in Germany. At this point of time, it has about 500 members in Germany, but also in Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxemburg, France, Italy, Great Britain, Australia and the USA.
Main reason for founding the club all those years ago was to create a possibility for interested fans to be able to always get the newest information about John Denver's concerts, CDs, television appearances etc. Now, after John's fatal accident on October 12, 1997, of course some things have to be changed. Nevertheless, we have decided to go on in any case, and so to help that his music as well as his commitment for a better world won't be forgotten, respectively kept going.Until 2010, we published a printed newsletter. The last one came out in early 2011, on the occasion of our 30th anniversary. We have now completely switched to email newsletters. You can register to receive this information here. Of course we also - as far as possible - are happy to answer each question about John, his music etc..Just get in touch!
Our club is a member of the "World Family Of John Denver Fan Clubs". That means we are regularly in touch with the other John Denver clubs all over the world - a wonderful opportunity to exchange infos, opinions and also to make new friends.
We will also keep alive a "tradition" of the club - once a year, we organize a "Denver Weekend", a club meeting. It is meant for everybody as a chance to get to know each other, chat, sing, watch videos... The proceeds go to a worthy cause, this year for example we have been supporting the Wild Bird Care Center Kirchwald. 1992, 1997 and 2002, we even made the joint effort, along with the other three clubs in Europe, to have an "European John Denver Weekend"...
In the years since the club was founded, we have, among others, supported the following organizations:
