Deutschtum is a German term meaning "Germanness". It may either refer to German character, the belonging to the German people or the entirety of German ethnic groups in foreign countries.

An anti-Western concept of a romanticized Deutschtum has been an important component of German nationalism, when the conceptions of Volk (people) and Gemeinschaft (community) were driven to their racist extremes during the Third Reich.
