During the past 100 years, dermatology was continuously influenced by and dependent on changes of society, technical innovations, and abrupt downturns in the economy. In the following paragraphs, some structural aspects of German dermatology on the threshold of the new millennium will be considered, and a rather clouded forecast of the future will be given. In many other European countries the situation is, by and large, similar. With regard to some developments, I would be happy if my perspective turns out to be wrong.
