What are the longest German words in history

There is one word that is about beef labeling: (63 letters) rindfleischetikettierungsüberwachungsaufgabenübertragungsgesetz (law for the delegation of monitoring beef labelling). What are some other ridiculously long German words that you know?

A famous example with 79 letters (resp- 80) which is also listed in the Guinness book of records:

Donau­dampf­schiffahrts­elektrizitäten­haupt­betriebs­werk­bau­unter­beamten­gesellschaft

There is, however, no verification that this cooperation has ever existed.

Another long word with 67 characters which was officially used:

Grundstücks­verkehrs­genehmigungs­zuständigkeits­übertragungs­verordnung
