The Bielefeld Conspiracy (‘Bielefeldverschwörung ) is a joke circulated widely throughout the German web. It is satire of conspiracy theories and claims that the city of Bielefeld does not actually exist, but is an illusion propagated by various forces. On May 16th, 1994, computer science student Achim Held of the University of Kiel submitted a message to the newsgroup on Usenet, in which he claimed that he and a small group of friends discovered that the city of Bielefeld did not actually exist. Held speculated that a secret society may be behind the conspiracy, which may have infilitrated the German government. According to a 2004 interview with Held, the joke was inspired by a conversation with an avid reader of New Age magaziines at a student party in 1993.
