Schach Niggemann was founded in 1985 in Cologne by Erika and Günter Niggemann. Our company expanded step by step from a chess computer specialist to an all-round supplier for everything to do with chess. The company moved to Heiden (Westmünsterland) in the mid-90s due to its increasing demand for space. Now also active as a wholesaler and after taking over the service activities for the manufacturer Saitek with the brands Mephisto and Kasparov, Schach Niggemann advanced to probably the world's largest specialist for chess supplies with ten employees.
After the founders retired, Silvia and Christoph Kamp took over the management at the beginning of 2018. Both had been working for the company for decades. In the following year, the company moved to Münster, where space and efficiency were significantly increased, especially in the warehouse and dispatch area. Our premises have now 550 m² of space and are also fully accessible for wheelchairs and trolleys.
In our spacious exhibition and sales room you will find a wide array of chess material and literature. On more than 100 meters of shelf space there are about 3.500 different book titles. We permanently stock more than 35,000 books on the subjects of chess and Go.
From the reasonably priced tournament set with a chess clock to the most precious gems, from small travel chess to huge chess sets for parks and exhibitions: Chess pieces, boards and chess tables are available for your inspection and selection for almost every need, taste and budget.
