German Figure Skating Championships
The German Figure Skating Championships are held annually with the aim to elect the best German figure skater in the five disciplines of men, women, couples, ice dancing and synchronized skating.
The first German Championships for men were held in Munich in 1891. The first championships where couples were allowed to participate, were held in 1907 in Altona, for ladies 1911 in Olomouc. Ice dancers were allowed to participate for the first time in 1950 in Cologne. In the early years there was a championship for German and Austrian skiers during the German and Austrian Skating Association, it seemed that the second German champion in the men's individual race, Georg Zachariades, was Austrian.
In the years 1949-1990 there were separate championships for the FRG and GDR. The Master of the Federal Republic was called the German master, while the winner of the GDR was titled the DDR master. For the East German champions in figure skating, see East German Figure Skating Championships.
