Abstract : A new absolute determination of the acceleration due to gravity was made at the former Geodatisches Institut Potsdam (since 1969 part of the Zentralinstitut Physik der Erde), using the reversible pendulum method. Beside essential theoretical fundamentals of the reversible pendulum method the publication presented here includes a detailed description of facts concerning the devices which have been used, their results and the way of interpretation. In addition the determinations of absolute gravity since the work of Kuhnen and Furtwangler are summarized and compared with the results from the recent reversible pendulum measurements performed at Potsdam.
