Every two years, up to 2,500 participants from universities, schools and other research and educational institutions come together at the German Historians' Conference (here at the 51st Historikertag in Hamburg).

As Chairman of the Verband der Historiker und Historikerinnen Deutschlands (VHD), Lutz Raphael is also responsible for organising the Historikertage.

Each Historikertag is co-hosted by a host university. The 54th German Historians' Conference will take place on the modern campus of the University of Leipzig.
