Brigitte is the largest women’s magazine of Germany, with a circulation of around 800,000 and an estimated readership of 3.6 million.

The magazine was first published in 1886 under the name Das Blatt der Hausfrau (meaning Housewife’s Journal in English). Its target audience was the middle-class bourgeois housewife and the magazine often covered articles about child-rearing and foods. During World War II it stopped publication.

The magazine was relaunched in 1949 and was renamed as Brigitte in 1954. Brigitte merged with another women’s magazine Constanze in 1969.

Brigitte is published every two weeks by Gruner + Jahr. The headquarters is in Hamburg. The magazine launched its website in April 1997. The target audience of the magazine is both housewives and working women.

Andreas Lebert and Brigitte Huber served as co-editors of Brigitte. Lebert, after serving in the post from 2002 to 2012, left the magazine to become editor-in-chief of Zeit Wissen magazine.

In 2010 the magazine began to employ women who were not professional models.
