The Historiathek is a new picture collection on historical topics. Premium photos are digitized and prepared from archive originals.
From many thousands of hours of film material, we scan still images using modern digital technology. The quality of the new scans clearly surpasses older archive pictures. Most of our motifs have never been shown publicly.

Simple licensing model

Purchase once, use it for an unlimited time and worldwide for the desired type of use – that’s how clear and simple modern licensing should be.

The Historia Library licenses its photos exclusively to business customers. The licenses start at 35 euros for unlimited web use. Television and print licenses are available at a reasonable price.

The masters of the historical scans have a resolution of about 5740×4315 pixels.

The master will be delivered after payment via download. We accept standard credit cards. Our payment service provider is PayPal.

More about licenses and conditions can be found in the terms and conditions.
