ANWR was founded in Hamburg, Germany in 1919. Over time, mergers and acquisitions led to a continuous expansion of our business operations. In the light of this, it is not surprising that the ANWR GROUP today is the industry's leading organisation in cooperative shoe retail.

We bring together shoe retailers with top brands and offer a portfolio of services tailored to the needs of retail and industry. Together with the financial services of our own bank, DZB Bank, this link creates market potential that an individual could never achieve on his own.
