Günther Fielmann
“Hardly any other accessory influences the effect that people have on their surroundings as much as a pair of glasses.“
Our History

The Fielmann Group has shaped the optical industry. Our company was born from the simple idea to put customers first  when Günther Fielmann opened his first store Cuxhaven. Within a few decades, the Fielmann Group democratised eyewear fashion, pioneered products, guarantees and services and eventually grew into the market leader in Central Europe as well as one of the largest optical groups worldwide.

The first store
Günther Fielmann opens his first optical store in Cuxhaven. He formulates the guiding principle “You are the customer” and applies it to all aspects of the business: Fielmann is the first optical retailer to openly display the products, provide free services, offer extensive warranties. All of this at significantly lower prices.
