The Science Fiction Club Deutschland (SFCD), was established on August 1, 1955, in Frankfurt, Germany. Its founders included Walter Ernsting, Trude Ernsting and Walter Spiegl (Germany), Julian Parr (England), and as a guest, Raymond Z. Gallun (USA). It was funded by a grant from the Alden Lorraine Ackerman Fund. Its clubzine was Andromeda.

By 1958, it had changed its name to Science Fiction Club Europa (SFCE). Later, the club reverted to the older name.

It appears to have run some conventions, but details are scarce:

This is a club page. Please extend it by adding information about when and where the club met, when and by whom it was founded, how long it was active, notable accomplishments, well-known members, clubzines, any conventions it ran, external links to the club's website, other club pages, etc.

When there's a floreat (Fl.), this indicates the time or times for which we have found evidence that the club existed. This is probably not going to represent the club's full lifetime, so please update it if you can!
