English summary: By the time of the Weimar Republic, scholars, authors, and journalists were of the opinion that the Age of the Bourgeosie was about to end - the middle classes as a closed social group were no longer of use. This collection of articles investigates a period of very high importance in the history of the German Bourgeosie - the time between 1870 and 1930. On the one hand, authors trace the great social and economic changes of the time, which transformed bourgeois life to a high degree. On the other hand, concrete strategies of bourgeois self-expression are being examined, as well as the changes in art and culture, family structures and travelling, consumerism and club activities as symbols of bourgeois activities. German text. German description: patestens in der Weimarer Republik waren sich Wissenschaftler, Literaten und Publizisten einig: das burgerliche Zeitalter steht vor seinem Ende, das Burgertum hat als geschlossene soziale Gruppe ausgedient.Dieser Sammelband geht einer ganz besonderen Epoche des deutschen Burgertums nach: der Zeit zwischen 1870 und 1930. Dabei werden einerseits die grossen sozialen und okonomischen Umwalzungen jener Zeit nachgezeichnet, die das burgerliche Leben spurbar veranderten. Andererseits geht es um konkrete Strategien burgerlicher Selbstdarstellung und um den Wandel von Kunst und Kultur, von Familienstrukturen und Reisepraxis, von Konsumverhalten oder Vereinsleben als Ausdruck burgerlicher Lebensfuhrung.
