List of Newspapers
I just recommended getting newspaper apps for reading comprehension in another thread, so I thought why not list some quality ones here:
Neue Zürcher Zeitung (NZZ)
Boulevard/Tabloid Journalism style news papers:
While the print version is a weekly magazine and I'm not entirely sure if they have an app version, Der Spiegel is also pretty good.
taz - die tageszeitung
Wikipedia says: a cooperative-owned German daily newspaper administrated by its employees. Founded in 1978 in Berlin as part of an independent, progressive and politically left-leaning movement, it has focused on current politics, social issues such as inequality, ecological crises both local and international, and other topics not covered by the more traditional and conservative newspapers.
I usually scan the headlines (Schlagzeilen) of Die Welt daily, but I just do it with a browser. Newspaper Deutsche is generally too tough, but I sometimes make the effort to slog through a history article.
Any of them have articles available for free? I don’t mind spending money on education but paying ~2 euros per day not being too overly interested in content seems quite steep.
der Standard which is my favorite newspaper is definitely free, most other should be too although some might charge you something for some articles. Most have an anti adblock policy too.
The ones I use (Zeit, Spiegel, Süddeutsche) mostly have a mix of free articles and articles you have to pay for (at least the online version), though they often won't let you read things if you have aan adblocker on. So while you won't be able to read everything, you will be able to read quite a bit.
