Eduard Gerhard founded the institute. Upon his departure from Rome in 1832, the headquarters of the Instituto di corrispondenza archeologica, as it was then named, was established in Berlin. Its predecessor institute was founded there by Otto Magnus von Stackelberg, Theodor Panofka and August Kestner in 1829.
The DAI's Romano-Germanic Commission (Römisch-Germanische Kommission) includes the world's largest library for prehistoric archaeology and is located in Frankfurt. Its commission for the History of Classical Antiquity is in Munich and its Commission for the Archaeology of Non-European Cultures is located in Bonn.
