Who we are.

Our company

Rainer Goetzfried London Map FairWe have founded Götzfried Antique Maps in 2006 to turn a long-term passion for collecting antiquarian maps and atlases into a professional full time business.

Our customers are highly experienced collectors who want to expand their collections as well as first-time buyers who have just started to discover the fascination of rare antique maps or who are looking for a remarkable gift. Also libraries, universities and foundations are among our clients. Since 2006 we have served hundreds of map lovers from Germany, Europe and from all over the world.

Our offers include copper engraved and woodcut maps, town views, atlases and geographical books from the 15th to the 18th century. You are also invited to visit us and inspect our maps and atlases in Tettnang located near the Lake Constance. Please arrange an appointment in advance.

We are a member of the International Map Collectors Society (IMCoS) and exhibit occasionally at the largest European antique map fairs in London, Paris and Milan.

It isn't often that I find myself in such capable and honorable hands. Herr Goetzfried of Vintage Maps patiently explained why some maps were more valuable then others, what details to consider, and indicated every minute imperfection that could be found in the map I purchased. It arrived promptly in perfect condition and is even more beautiful than I expected.
