From numerous submissions, a jury selected 15 titles that qualified for the final, which was broadcast live on March 18 by Norddeutscher Rundfunk (NDR) within ARD from the town hall in Bremerhaven . Moderators were Dénes Törzs and Susan Stahnke . After the title was presented, TV viewers could choose their favorite via TED.

At the end of the evaluation, Margot Eskens was the winner of the songs as beautiful as the north competition in 1993 . Their song also sailors homesick had Gunther Behrle composed and texted. The winner was presented with a trophy in the form of a "glass lighthouse".

The 15 tracks in the finale appeared on a CD together with the title song of the TV show sung by the Northern Lights (music: Jean Frankfurter , text: Irma Holder ) .
