This is an overview of symplectic geometry – the geometry of symplectic manifolds. From a language for classical mechanics in the XVIII century, symplectic geometry has matured since the 1960’s to a rich and central branch of differential geometry and topology. A current survey can thus only aspire to give a partial flavor on this exciting field.
