Alongside Deutschlandfunk Kultur and Deutschlandfunk Nova, Deutschlandfunk ( DLF ) is one of the national radio programs of Deutschlandradio .

The public broadcasting station of the same name, founded on January 1, 1962 in Cologne, free of advertising , which - unlike the state broadcasting corporations of the ARD  - served the entire old Federal Republic and was characterized by its high density of information and news, became a part of ins Deutschlandradio , a corporation under public law , transferred.

Studios and editorial offices for the DLF program are located in a high-rise building in the south of Cologne, on the edge of the Cologne-Marienburg district .

As part of a brand structure reform, Deutschlandradio introduced new logos for its radio stations on May 1, 2017. In addition, Deutschlandradio Kultur and DRadio Wissen were renamed. Deutschlandradio Kultur has appeared as Deutschlandfunk Kultur since May 1, 2017 , DRadio Wissen as Deutschlandfunk Nova . The conversion of the website took place at the end of April 2017.


The main thematic focuses of Deutschlandfunk today are information and background reports on the one hand, and culture-oriented programs on the other. During the day, current events from politics, business and science are in the foreground, while afterwards the culture (music, radio plays, readings, reports on cultural topics) determines the program. As a result, the music share is relatively low during the day, while it is around half of the broadcasting time in the evenings and at night and on the weekend.

In Cologne Broadcasting Center and broadcast components for partially Germany Kultur produced. The entire DLF program is free of advertising . The station is one of the few remaining German radio stations that broadcast the national anthem daily (in a string orchestra arrangement based on Haydn's string quartet version, immediately before the date change at around 0:00). Since the beginning of 2007, the national anthem has been followed by the European anthem .

Detailed information accompanying numerous programs is available on the Deutschlandfunk website; selected contributions are now also available as audio files ( audio-on-demand ).


Messages are sent on weekdays from 4:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. every full and half hour, in other periods on the hour (except on Saturdays at 9:00 p.m.). More detailed messages with a duration of up to ten minutes are sent every even hour (from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.) as well as at 1:00 p.m. and on weekdays at 11:00 p.m. At every odd hour - unless otherwise stated - the messages last five minutes. Occasionally there are program-related deviations. O-tones are not used in the news because, according to Deutschlandfunk, reports reach a greater amount of information than short statements from politicians. The subsequent traffic broadcast was the only one to cover the entire area of ​​the Federal Republic of Germany. This service, which has existed since 1964, was discontinued at the beginning of 2020 without replacement; on January 31st at 11:09 p.m. the last traffic report ran on Deutschlandfunk. This step was justified with a changed usage behavior of the listeners.

Information broadcasts

On weekdays from 05:05 to 09:00, the DLF broadcasts the news magazine Informations am Morgen with verbatim contributions and interviews of around five to ten minutes in length. Further information magazines are the information at noon from 12:10 to 13:30, the information in the evening from 18:10 to 18:40 and the program That was the day from 23:10 to 23:57, a current summary the events of the day. The broadcast information evening follows until 19:00 the shipment background ; a topic of contemporary history is always dealt with in detail and analytically here. This is followed by three comments on the topics of the day. This is followed by the evening program, in which the program Andruck - The Magazine for Political Literature is broadcast with detailed reviews on Mondays between 7.15 and 8.00 p.m. A national and an international press review with excerpts of current comments is prepared several times a day .

The information in the morning is considered the flagship of Deutschlandfunk. Within this program, the main interviews stand out, which are held every working day at 7:15 a.m. and 8:15 a.m. as an interview in the morning, mostly by telephone with a politician. These interviews are often the subject of daily reporting in the opinion-forming media. Deutschlandradio, as the broadcaster that operates Deutschlandfunk, points out in its self-portrayal that its information programs are highly valued by multipliers (journalists, decision-makers in politics and business), are very popular and clearly outshine the information programs of the state broadcasters in this regard.

Weekly magazines

On weekdays, outside of the current magazines, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., recurring focus magazines run daily, such as day after day. From religion and society with background information from the world of religions or Europe today and Germany today with reports from other European countries or from within Germany. Campus and Career offers orientation in questions of university education and professional advancement. Continue to call are book market , research current science editor with reports on new developments in science and medicine (integrated therein at 16:57 the sidereal time with references to today's astronomical observation subjects), the environment and consumers and culture today . In addition, two daily business magazines are broadcast. One - Wirtschaft am Mittag  - deals with stock market and corporate events, the other - economy and society  - focuses on socio-economic developments. The morning journal offers a one-and-a-half hour conversation format with studio guests and calls from the phone on one topic each. The afternoon is going to be Corso. Kunst und Pop sent, a half-hour magazine on popular culture with music. This is followed by @mediasres , the media magazine . In addition, from January 1, 2006 to December 31, 2010, a poem was broadcast three times a day in the poetry calendar ; the broadcast time varied.

In the evenings, there are one-hour focus programs, some of which deal with just one topic, some in magazine format with several topics, as well as radio plays, features and longer music series. The Long Night (weekly on Saturdays from 11 p.m. as a repetition of the program broadcast the previous night in Deutschlandfunk Kultur) is the longest continuous focus format in the German broadcasting landscape with its three hours, previously even five hours.

The multi-part series Essay and Discourse (until 2006: Culture on Sunday Mornings ) will be broadcast on Sundays from 9:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. Topics so far have included: Islam in Germany (August to September 2001), What is a picture? - Answers from Art and Philosophy, Neurophysiology, Media Studies and Art History (August to September 2002) and The Dialogue of Generations (January to March 2005). From 4:30 p.m. to 4:57 p.m. (followed by sidereal time ), the science department in Wissenschaft im Brennpunkt then broadcasts an in-depth, almost half-hour specialty program on controversial science topics.

In the early 1950s, members of the gave ARD the North West German Radio on the job (NWDR) long wave to produce a national radio program broadcast and after the broadcast of the GDR a long wave transmitters ( Germany transmitter had taken) into operation.

After lengthy negotiations, the NWDR broadcast the first test programs in 1953. Three years later (1956), the North German Broadcasting Corporation (NDR ), which had been founded in the meantime, was able to take up regular operation of the program called German long-wave transmitter .

Foundation of Deutschlandfunk

In 1960, the Deutschlandfunk (DLF) was founded as an independent public-law institution by federal law . The law on the establishment of broadcasters under federal law passed by the German Bundestag on October 26, 1960 stipulated that Deutsche Welle , which would also become independent with this law, would broadcast shortwave broadcasts abroad and Deutschlandfunk broadcast broadcasts for (all of) Germany and other European countries should produce, whereby the broadcasts of the Deutschlandfunk should “convey a comprehensive picture of Germany” according to § 5 (1). When the law came into force on December 16, 1960, the two new institutions were deemed to have been established under Section 33. The order from ARD to NDR to operate the German long-wave transmitter expired. The long wave was handed over to the new station Deutschlandfunk, based in Cologne, which began broadcasting a German-language radio program on January 1, 1962.

Official target groups of the programs were German (speaking) listeners in the GDR , in Eastern Europe as well as in neighboring Western European countries such as Italy, France, Benelux, Great Britain, Ireland, Denmark, Norway and Sweden. In fact, Deutschlandfunk was primarily aimed at GDR citizens, who were to be given an alternative to the GDR radio with the program . A broadcasting corporation established by federal law to supply the population of the Federal Republic of Germany would not have been permitted due to the cultural sovereignty of the states (see 1st broadcasting judgment ). The Deutschlandfunk thus became the counterpart to the voice of the GDR , formerly the German broadcaster.

Similar to most of the first ARD radio programs, Deutschlandfunk organized a full radio program at that time, which covered completely different genres of music, culture, entertainment, education and information at different times. Later, foreign-language programs were also produced, which were broadcast in the evenings via long wave and medium wave and, from the late 1980s, also via satellite to large parts of Europe. In contrast to Deutsche Welle, the international editorial staff of Deutschlandfunk concentrated on Poland, Hungary and Czechoslovakia.

Since it was founded between January 1962 and February 1979, Deutschlandfunk had its headquarters in a villa within the villa colony of Cologne-Marienburg , Lindenallee 7. It then moved into its current building, which is not far away.

1970s and 1980s

Deutschlandfunk was the first German radio station to regularly broadcast traffic information from March 25, 1964 ; with him the famous "traffic beeper" ( Hinz trill ) was developed. While Deutschlandfunk could only be received via long, medium and shortwave until the 1970s, one VHF frequency was initially used in the federal capital of Bonn in the 1970s and further VHF frequencies in the 1980s, especially along the Border of the then Federal Republic, in operation.

In the information in the morning , Deutschlandfunk established a live telephone connection on October 24, 1989 between the singer Wolf Biermann , who lived in Hamburg - who was expatriated from the GDR in 1976 - and the civil rights activist Bärbel Bohley in East Berlin . In New Germany on October 27, 1989, a hateful, pejorative commentary on Biermann's figure, hitherto hushed up by the GDR media, appeared; According to the documents kept by the Stasi, no consideration was given to lifting the existing entry ban.

Changes in the course of German reunification

As early as the 1980s, Deutschlandfunk had begun to further increase its information content at the expense of entertainment programs. At the end of the 1980s, under Artistic Director Edmund Gruber, a complete repositioning of Deutschlandfunk was even planned to become a news radio with regularly recurring elements per broadcast hour instead of a program scheme based on the French program France Info . However, this failed at the Broadcasting Council.

After the unification of the two German states in 1990, the DLF had lost its original mandate to provide the GDR and Eastern Europe with information from the free and democratic Germany. The federal government's “trusteeship” for the GDR population had also expired, which is why Deutschlandfunk, as an institution established by federal law, should not have been allowed to continue to exist. Nevertheless, one wanted to continue to offer national radio for the united Germany. Therefore, with effect from January 1, 1994, the 16 federal states agreed to establish the public corporation Deutschlandradio by means of a state treaty under a joint umbrella of ARD and ZDF . The previous federal public corporation, Deutschlandfunk, merged with the former West Berlin RIAS and the former GDR broadcaster Deutschlandsender Kultur in this new body. The foreign language DLF programs abroad were assigned to the German international broadcaster Deutsche Welle on June 1, 1993 . With the merger in 1994 almost all entertainment programs were canceled and Deutschlandfunk was positioned as a national culture and information program.

History since the mid-1990s

Since 1998, Deutschlandfunk, together with the organizers of the Bremen Music Festival, has been awarding a prestigious award for young musicians, the Deutschlandfunk sponsorship prize , which u. a. is associated with an artist-in-residence grant.

After the new corporation Deutschlandradio (until March 2005 “DeutschlandRadio”) had to broadcast two radio programs due to the state treaty, the name Deutschlandfunk was retained for the program to be produced from Cologne. However, since 1994 the DLF no longer has its own artistic director.

Since the beginning of 2006, Deutschlandfunk has had new acoustic packaging. For the first time, this also includes jingles before and after the news. However, these are designed to be relatively reserved and quiet.

Matthias Ponnier acts as the station voice . Jingles at the beginning of the programs were already in use at short notice in the mid-1990s, but enjoyed extremely little popularity.

On January 1, 2012, Deutschlandfunk celebrated its 50th anniversary under the title 50 Years of Deutschlandfunk . A congress entitled “The Place of Politics in the Digital World” with special programs in the current program as well as a website designed for this event reminded of the start of broadcasting 50 years ago on January 1st, 1962. The publication also includes a DVD with all the lectures and some video contributions.

During the COVID-19 pandemic in Germany , Deutschlandfunk switched its program schedule to a special program for the period from March 23 to May 17, 2020. The scheme provided more information on the current situation, including the three-hour program The Morning and the podcast Coronavirus - Everyday Life in a Pandemic Daily at 4 p.m., as well as entertainment with finished features, radio plays and documentaries. Other regular programs got less airtime, also because of the impairment of the production processes in the station.

Transmission technology

The Deutschlandfunk program is broadcast via FM , DAB and digitally via the Astra satellite system and is distributed in the German and some European cable networks.

The Donebach (long wave), Ravensburg, Bad Dürrheim, Cremlingen and Neumünster (all medium wave) locations were used until November 23, 1978. With the entry into force of the Geneva Wave Plan , the medium wave transmitter Bad Dürrheim was shut down, in 1979 the transmitter Erching (long wave, only daytime operation) and 1980/81 the transmitters Thurnau and Nordkirchen (both medium wave) were added. On January 1, 1989, the transmitter Aholming took over the task of the transmitter in Erching. Thus, 24-hour operation was also possible on the second long-wave frequency. From October 1, 1994, the Deutschlandfunk program was also broadcast via the medium-wave transmitter of the Saarland Broadcasting Corporation in Heusweiler. In return, the Mainflingen medium wave transmitter went to Evangeliums-Rundfunk on December 31, 1994 . The broadcast of the program via medium wave stations ended on December 31, 2015.

In 2010, Deutschlandfunk and its sister programs applied for slots in the national DAB bouquet. At most of the locations where Deutschlandfunk was already represented with 128 kB / s via DAB before January 18, 2010, the bandwidth was divided into two 64 kB / s program streams in favor of the DLF and the new program. Since the KEF cut back the DAB funding, Deutschlandfunk has borne the costs for DAB broadcast from its own budget.

The establishment of an FM transmitter network only began in the 1980s. In southern Germany in particular, the station only received weak support frequencies in the cities. This means that the Deutschlandfunk on VHF is often very difficult to receive outside of the cities.

Since 2001, the BRF-DLF program has been broadcast on VHF in Brussels , which is made up of programs from Belgian broadcasting and German broadcasting .

Until the end of April 2012, Deutschlandfunk also broadcast its programs over the shortwave frequency of 6190 kHz from the Berlin-Britz transmitter with an output of 17 kW. After the failure of a preamplifier , the repair of the system, which went into operation in 1951, would have been too expensive, so broadcasting was stopped.

The analogue broadcast of Deutschlandradio programs via long wave (transmitter locations Donebach and Aholming ) was discontinued at the end of 2014 in accordance with the requirements of the Commission for Determining the Financial Requirements of Broadcasters (KEF). This had pushed for the shutdown of the cost-intensive long-wave transmission because it was used less and less and at the same time the digitization of radio was progressing. The savings are now to flow into the further expansion of the DAB + transmitter network.


The following (incomplete) list is limited to frequencies with at least 5 kW transmission power or other important locations, sorted from north to south. All in all, Deutschlandfunk can be received on 157 FM frequencies (as of February 2012) .

In the course of the frequency takeover of 98.7 MHz from the American military transmitter AFN in the Rhine-Main area by Deutschlandfunk, 15 low-power transmitters previously used by the DLF were switched off on January 18, 2017 (all MHz): Aßlar (103.7), Bad Camberg ( 99.8), Bad Kreuznach (106.5), Bingen (98.0), Darmstadt (102.0), Frankfurt (Main) (97.6), Friedberg (89.9), Gelnhausen (93.9) , Gießen (103.1), Hanau (92.4), Limburg (103.3), Lorch (88.1), Marburg (103.5) and Oberursel (103.5 MHz).
