  One of the most challenging tasks for extreme ultraviolet, soft and hard X-ray free-electron laser photon diagnostics is the precise determination of the photon pulse duration, which is typically in the sub 100 fs range. In a larger campaign nine different methods, which are able to determine such ultrashort photon pulse durations were compared at FLASH. Radiation pulses at a wavelength of 13.5 nm and 24.0 nm together with the corresponding electron bunch duration were measured by indirect methods like analyzing spectral correlations, statistical fluctuations and energy modulations of the electron bunch, and also direct methods like autocorrelation techniques, THz streaking or reflectivity changes of solid state samples.
