Süddeutsche Zeitung

Munich, Germany

The Süddeutsche Zeitung (South German Newspaper), published in Munich, is the largest German national subscription daily newspaper. The title is often abbreviated SZ.

The editorial stance of the newspaper is liberal and generally of centre-left, leading some to joke that SZ is the only opposition in the state of Bavaria, which has been governed by the conservative Christian Social Union of Bavaria almost continuously since 1949. The national edition features four sections: Politics, Culture, Economy and Sports. Editions sold in Munich and its surrounding counties include a local news insert.

SZ is well known for its daily front page column “Streiflicht” (Searchlight) of 72 lines, which is published anonymously.

SZ has published The New York Times International Weekly on Mondays since 2004. This is an 8-page broadsheet insert of English language articles from The New York Times.
