The Pyramid is a quiz show that was broadcast on ZDF from March 16, 1979 to October 1994 . The moderator was Dieter Thomas Heck , and the theme music (Die Pyramid) of the German show comes from Gershon Kingsley . In 2012, a new edition of the program was broadcast on ZDF.


The German version is based on the US game show The $ 10,000 Pyramid , which was developed by Bob Stewart, who also developed the concept of The price is hot and Tell the truth . The show was first broadcast by CBS in 1973 , but only on ABC to a rating success. The quiz show, which has enjoyed success over the years as The $ 25,000 Pyramid , The $ 50,000 Pyramid and The $ 100,000 Pyramid , continues to air on various channels in the United States to this day.

From 1996 to 1999 the German private broadcaster Sat.1 ran the game show Do You Have Words based on the same game principle. The program was initially moderated by Jörg Pilawa and later by Thomas Koschwitz .

The new edition of Die Pyramid started in August 2012 , initially in the evening program of ZDFneo, later also in the afternoon program of ZDF.

Recording and broadcast

Each season was usually recorded a few months before the broadcast in the television studio in Munich (FSM) in Unterföhring. So was z. B. with the prominent candidates Heidi Brühl and Reinhard Mey (also music appearance) produced a 45-minute pilot episode, which was first broadcast on April 3, 2012 on ZDFkultur . The program was broadcast at irregular intervals, but sometimes also in a weekly rhythm, on different days of the week.


The aim of the game, which runs over several rounds, is that two candidates have to explain seven terms to each other in thirty seconds in different ways ( pantomime , term descriptions) without using parts of the term itself.

In the ZDF edition, two teams were formed, each made up of a celebrity and a viewer candidate. A total of three pyramid rounds were played per broadcast. First, three preliminary rounds were played alternately between the two pairs of candidates, in which the hands could be used for gestures. However, there were only 30 seconds available to guess seven terms. If the rule not to reveal any components of the solution word was violated for one of the terms, the term was ruled out; However, the round continued until the end of the time, if there were still terms to be guessed. If the pair of candidates managed to correctly guess all seven terms of a preliminary round, they received an extra 200 DM .

The pair of candidates who guessed the most terms in the three preliminary rounds could finally play for the corresponding pyramid. In the event of a tie, a key question was asked. Finally the half of the game of the winning candidates of the preliminary round was pushed into the middle of the field, a pyramid animation appeared and within 60 seconds six terms had to be guessed.

The pyramids that were played around were endowed differently: the first pyramid with 500 DM, the second with 1000 DM and the third with 1500 DM. The terms to be guessed were not always the same, but with increasing DM amounts evaluated: 50 DM for the first three, 100 DM for the next two, 150 DM for the last term (a total of 500 DM) in the first pyramid; analogously three times 100 DM, twice 200 DM, once 300 DM (total 1000 DM) in the second pyramid; and ditto three times 150 DM, twice 300 DM, once 450 DM (a total of 1500 DM) in the third pyramid.

In the pyramid round, however, gestures were almost impossible because the whistleblower had to put his hands in two loops. Fatal in this round: if the aforementioned rule was violated, the round was over immediately and not after 60 seconds.

In controversial situations (usually once per broadcast) the referee and Munich lawyer Josef Heindl intervened over the phone. In the "half-time" came a music track that was mainly roughly classified into the Schlager category and was mostly sung in German.


The winnings of the celebrities were collected for three broadcasts and then donated to a good cause (the respective case was briefly described by Heck, but the person concerned was not mentioned by name). The viewer candidates were allowed to keep their money.


The game was also played once by children in 1987 within the edition of the super hit parade, also moderated by Dieter Thomas Heck, to mark the 10th anniversary of "A Heart for Children" and in the one-time edition of Guten Abend, Deutschland , a joint production by ZDF and DFF on May 6, 1990 from the Friedrichstadt-Palast in Berlin, the quiz even ran live. However, only celebrities participated; one team consisted of two representatives from DFF and the other from ZDF. Since the game was played for a good cause and the aim was to reach the highest possible sum, the candidates already seemed to know the answers:

Description of the ZDF celebrities: "We didn't have that, but it existed in the GDR and is no longer there ..." - (correct) answer: " State Security ".

Here again Mr. Heindl was apparently brought into play, in contrast to other editions of the "Pyramid", his voice could not be heard. Dieter Thomas Heck greeted him this time with the words "Mr. Heindl, how did you manage to get through here?" - as an allusion to the GDR telephone network, which was ailing at the time.

The constant word duel between the two alleged brawlers became an integral part of the show. However, since no one could see Mr. Heindl, since he was sitting in an office in the studio and could only be heard over the red phone, a competition was held for charity, in which children should try to paint Mr. Heindl as they do imagine him. There were thousands of entries.

In the following show, Mr. Heindl came on stage and announced the winner himself.

Board game

Today there are some parlor games (board and card games) that follow this model, for example Activity .

New edition: The Pyramid (ZDF / ZDFneo, 2012)

A new edition of the show, which has been in production since 2012, was hosted by Micky Beisenherz . Joachim Llambi held the position of referee who, unlike the original, was publicly seen in the new edition. Only two preliminary rounds and two pyramids were played, the first being endowed with 5,000 euros and the second with 10,000 euros. For the purpose of a response and quota test, the program has been running on weekdays at 6:45 p.m. on weekdays since August 6, 2012 on the digital special- interest channel zdf neo . Since August 27, 2012, it has been broadcast regularly at 4:15 p.m. on ZDF, where it was interrupted once by a short commercial and program information. Because the ratings were too low, the program was moved to night programming on September 17, 2012 and has since been discontinued.
