Publisher Konrad Delius has a keen eye that is informed by his personal enthusiasm for all of the topics covered by his company. “Our aim is to move people. That is why we want to use our media to constantly provide an impetus to jump on a bike and discover nature, go sailing and feel the wind and the waves or experience mobility in all of its nuances using a car. This task is not just a job, it is our passion.” Its consistent gearing to its target groups and the commitment to offer its readers a top service are also reflected in the online activities of the Delius Klasing publishing house.
