The gala will be moderated by the soprano Annette Dasch (45) and the journalist Axel Brüggemann (49). You can expect stars like figure skating legend Katarina Witt (55), ex-racing driver Nico Rosberg (36) and model Barbara Meier (35). Prize winners and laudators have not yet been announced.

In the spirit of the Beethoven year

The tickets for the event are available for prices between 100 and 180 euros on the website of the European Culture Prize. From 7 p.m. the event can also be live and can be followed for free at MagentaMusik 360. The gala is also available on MagentaTV and on the channel #dabeiTV.
