The Ring Deutscher Pfadfinderinnenverbände (RDP; German Guide Federation) was the German national Guiding organization within the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS). It serves 47,688 members (as of 2008). On June 9, 2021 the organization merged with the Ring deutscher Pfadfinderverbände in the Ring deutscher Pfadfinder*innenverbände. [1]

The RDP was founded as Ring Deutscher Pfadfinderinnenbünde in 1949 by four Guiding associations:

  • Bund Christlicher Pfadfinderinnen (BCP, Protestant, only in Bavaria)
  • Pfadfinderinnenschaft Sankt Georg (PSG, Roman Catholic).

It became an associate member of WAGGGS in 1950 and a full member in 1954.
