With an annual membership of roughly 400, the German society is one of the largest and most active societies on campus and probably one of the largest German student societies anywhere in the world outside Germany. The society promotes an interest in German culture, politics, business and language. Beside various social and cultural events, the German Society organises an annual German Symposium which, running the 16th year now, has become a regular fixture on the LSE Events' Calendar and has received attention far beyond the boundaries of the United Kingdom. In recent years, notable persons representing German politics (Angela Merkel, Wolfgang Schäuble, Gerhard Schröder, Peer Steinbrück), culture (Charlotte Knobloch, Berthold Kohler, Robert Zollitsch), business (Alexander Dibelius, Jürgen Großmann, August Oetker), media (Peter Frey, Ranga Yogeshwar) and sports (Jens Lehmann) have held lectures and participated in discussions at the German Symposium.
