German astrologer and psychotherapist (since 1981) who has been practicing since 1975. He conducts self awareness groups and has been a leader in German astrology groups as an active and certified member of the Deutscher Astrologenverband/DAV, director of the Freiburger Ausbildungszentrum. The former chairman of DAV and now an honorary member. Dr. Niehenke is the author of an astrological correspondence course on cassettes, an advocate of scientific astrology (research).

He is the author of "Kritische Astrologie" (Critical Astrology). A well known speaker of international astrological congresses, he is also active in media work, radio, TV and internet).

He is the editor of the 'DAV-Databank' (CD-ROM, 1997)a data collection on disk that culled data from Gauquelin, Bordoni, Schepel and Rodden, arousing some criticism due to the lack of accurate updates and editing.

Niehenke became famous outside the astrological field as a proponent of nudist walking and running, an activity which led to considerable friction with the German legal system.
