    First broadcast October 1, 1992 on Das Erste

    Marienhof was a day in the early evening of the First German television broadcast soap opera whose broadcasting began on 1 October 1992 and finally ended on June 15, 2011th It was produced by Bavaria Fernsehproduktion GmbH in Grünwald - Geiselgasteig near Munich , and the plot itself took place in Cologne .


    The series revolved around the stories and problems of the residents of Marienhof , a fictional Cologne district in which the Café Dailys , the bakery and pastry shop Back Dat , the restaurant Wilder Mann , the pub Uns Veedel , the Pension Adler , the handicapped-accessible laundromat W @ sche-on-line , the Erich-Kästner -Gymnasium , the Foxy discotheque and various residential buildings were located. There was also an infirmary in the Marienhospital . The characters of the soap were bar and shop owners, craftsmen, doctors, students and teachers. Overall, the plot - in contrast to the plot of the second ARD soap Verbotene Liebe - was dominated by the petty-bourgeois milieu instead of the wealthy nobility , similar to the other well-known daily soaps Unter Uns and Gute Zeiten, Bad Zeiten .

    Marienhof is familiar, without being dusty, and close to everyday life without being boring - every day more than three million, mostly young, viewers are guests in the Cologne district. The stories in Marienhof are written off from life, credibility is their greatest strength. We will keep this piece of modern television home for the audience as long as desired. "


    Planning the series

    Concept and initial framework proposals

    In April 1989, the Bavaria Film / Film West working group, headed by Georg Feil, presented a first paper in which the series , which did not yet have an independent working title, was presented. Accordingly, a classic 25-minute soap with stories and events from private and work life was planned, which, however, was not copied from foreign formats - as was the case with Lindenstrasse and later with Gute Zeiten, Bad Zeiten , but specifically from German authors should be written. The series envisaged three narrative strands interwoven like a braid based on the Anglo-Saxon model, i. H. Three independent stories should be told per episode, which nevertheless have points of contact.

    A script editor and two teams of five authors should ensure that this concept is adhered to . The working group initially developed three suggestions for locations: the clover leaf , the department store and the hospital in the middle of the city . After the series paper had been processed, the materials clover leaf and hospital were discarded; what remained was a proposal for the department store, which was presented to the ARD W cross-country series project group in May 1989 . After almost all editors had voted for a further development of the department store material, extensive research was carried out on cross-country productions in other European countries. In July, another revised paper on the series was presented with explanations of the dramaturgical concept and the planned manuscript production, in which the department store material was expanded and rounded off. Ultimately, however, the Arnhem department store was rejected by the ARDW project group, as it was feared that this location would not offer enough scope for private stories and human fates, which is why all previous suggestions for characters were rejected.

    Find a suitable location

    In the initial discussions about the location of the series in April 1989, from which the above suggestions originated, the idea of establishing a city ​​district as a location emerged for the first time during new discussions with the editors . A grown neighborhood with many different characters that can be shown in their private and work life seemed to be the solution to all problems. In order to find the ideal location, several German cities were examined in this regard, u. a. the Friesenwall in Cologne , the Gutleutviertel in Frankfurt , the Hamburg districts of Altona and Ottensen / Mottenburg , the Nordstadt and the Ölberg in Wuppertal , the Neckarstadt in Mannheim , as well as various other districts, including in Berlin , Hameln , Munich , Salzhemmendorf , Amelgatzen and Bremen . All research showed that a district is ideal for a cross-country series. Since there are such quarters in many cities, the selection for the series was not easy. At a meeting of the AG with the responsible station editors in the late summer of 1989, it was initially agreed on Mannheim. Since most of the series were set in large cities, it seemed time to introduce a medium-sized city as the setting, especially since a large part of the population and therefore the viewers themselves lived in medium-sized cities and in the provinces.

    A new presentation of the series , the newly created locations and introduced characters took place in November 1989. The Marienhof , as the quarter was now called, should be an ideal, fictional quarter in a specific city, namely Mannheim. The new series project seemed so promising to the ARDW that funds were made available for a more specific implementation. After the fall of the Berlin Wall in November 1989, consideration was given to locating the Marienhof in Berlin. However, since the future developments there could not be foreseen and Bavaria Film / West Film had neither contacts nor branches there, this idea was quickly rejected.

    Although a first sketch of the backdrop city that was to be built for the series was already available, Mannheim was ultimately unable to convince the makers as a location. During a study trip in January 1990, the strong dialect deterred the visitors to such an extent that it was feared that spectators outside the city would not be able to sufficiently identify with the location. It also seemed difficult to find enough actors who could speak the dialect. Although the Neckarstadt was otherwise very popular, the decision was made to build the Marienhof in some other city, with Cologne as the new location in mind. However, the car signs (also in the entire first season) bore a fictitious “V” as a location identifier, and neither the building nor the language or place names should allow the city to be identified.

    Development of the characters

    Parallel to the subsequent construction of the exterior scenery, the series commission, a newly founded subcommittee of the ARDW, expressed the wish to work out the individual characters from the 1989 presentation, which was still intended for Mannheim as the setting. Initially, all roles were retained, described in more detail and given a past, but many interesting characters could not convince in the long run. A new description was discussed with the series commission on March 22, 1990. The editors asked for the biographies to be less of a low social milieu and for the roles to be given a more positive attitude. They also wanted smaller stories and the inner workings of the characters to be included.

    By July 1991, the series commission should have the first scripts, the character biographies, the detailed description of the venue and the entire manuscript and production planning. In addition, a corporate design , a model for audience research and initial casting suggestions were developed. The revised biographies contained many new names for the actors who were already known and were ultimately designed in the way they were then introduced in the first Marienhof episodes.

    Problems in production planning

    At the conference on March 22nd it was also stated that in the first year two separate 25-minute episodes should be broadcast per week, the dramaturgy of which allows them to be broadcast one after the other - possibly interrupted by an advertising block. The subsequent presentation of the Marienhof at a meeting in Munich was crowned with success: those responsible placed the order for 52 × 50 minutes. As a result of these planning, one had to expect to produce in advance, and yet the production would at some point be overtaken by the broadcast, so that one would have to take a break from broadcasting. The makers were therefore not entirely satisfied with the result. The originally planned 25-minute series, which was conceived as the first daily soap from a German source, should be based on what viewers are currently doing by keeping the time between production and broadcasting as short as possible.

    So by the next meeting on October 16, the scripts had been tailored to the new, longer broadcast format. A long-wave cable pattern was developed, according to which the stories are interwoven. In the winter months, the books, outlines and treatments were further processed .

    Even the construction of the exterior set difficulties were encountered: As the houses were indeed brand new, had to look but old, one was patination of the surfaces necessary, which wanted despite various tests and specialist companies initially not succeed. The new camera systems could not be used either, as they were not suitable for outdoor shots and the associated temperature fluctuations, which only became apparent when they were already mounted on the tripods and used for the first tests. Another problem that emerged was the not yet tried and tested AVID editing system, which allows faster and more trouble-free editing in terms of the sound level, as the hard drives could not hold the material.

    Filming the first weekly season

    In spite of all odds, the first take off for the Marienhof fell on February 10, 1992, and the first season was shot on November 24, 1992. In order to be able to meet the enormous workload, two production teams worked simultaneously for the first time in German series history - one produced three and a half days in the outdoor setting, the other in the film villa and in various halls. Initially, the film was not shot chronologically, as the aim was to prevent the first episodes from being a bit “wooden”. Therefore, episodes 13–22 were produced first. After the team had settled in, episodes 1–12 and finally - now in chronological order - episodes 23–52 were filmed. Even before the first episode was broadcast, the actors presented themselves in the outdoor setting on July 10th.

    The order for a second season took place in May 1992, during the production of the first 52 episodes. The clients aimed for a cross-country series that would guarantee the audience to be as closely connected to the broadcaster as possible. The order volume of 50 million DM indicates the order of magnitude in which this task was tackled. Until the changeover to the Daily, the film was shot on 397 days during the first two and a half years.

    Death of Claus-Dieter Reents in August 1996

    On August 27, 1996, the actor Claus-Dieter Reents suddenly and unexpectedly died of heart failure while filming. His character Heinz Poppel had separated from his wife because of an affair and had previously been in Brazil for a few months, but new scenes with him had already been filmed and more were imminent. In addition, the books for the next three months had been written with Reents and all 40 days of shooting had been coordinated. Since an episode was broadcast every day, material had to be produced for an episode every day. After only three days, the ensemble had to continue shooting.

    On the same day, those responsible had to think about how the course of action should proceed. Since Margit Geissler , who played Reents' serial wife, no longer wanted to shoot in the backdrop of the Wilder Mann , where the accident had happened , after this shocking experience , it was decided not to use the material already recorded, but rather a reconciliation between the couple in Brazil and then they both died in a plane crash on their return in episode 698.

    Discontinuation of the series

    At the TV program conference of ARD on July 5 and 6, 2010, the program directors decided to stop production at Marienhof in February due to the continuously dwindling and persistently poor audience ratings since the beginning of 2008 - in 2010 the series only had an average market share of 8.5 percent 2011. Since the Daily was able to achieve the benchmark value of 10 percent market share in the advertising-relevant audience group several times in the past few months, according to other reports, only a restructuring of the evening program from 2011 was planned. On December 15, 2010, however, the ARD officially announced that the series would end with episode 4053 and will continue to be seen until the beginning of June 2011. After exactly 19 years, production ended on February 11, 2011 with the last day of shooting.

    As a result of the discontinuation of production, the contracts of over 100 employees at Bavaria Fernsehproduktion had to be terminated. 30 of them could be taken over for the new Bavaria production Herzflimmern - Die Klinik am See , which had already started on November 22, 2010.


    Start in the evening program "ARD vor 8"

    On October 1, 1992, Marienhof went on air for the first time on “ARD vor 8” and immediately reached 2.90 million viewers, which corresponded to an audience rate of 24.2 percent. Initially, the series was broadcast twice a week, always on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 5:35 p.m. In the course of the first season, the New Year's Eve episode no. 26, which was broadcast on December 31, 1992, achieved the highest audience rating in series history, which brought it a market share of 27.4 percent with 4.74 million interested viewers.

    After 52 episodes, which were now almost 50 minutes long and were interrupted by a short commercial, the Marienhof went into the summer break on April 8, 1993 and only returned to the screens on September 28 with episode 53 and a new slot . The episodes ran just under an hour later at 6:25 p.m. and were also only 25 minutes long, but they were still only broadcast on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Shortly before that, on September 10, 1993, the second big summer party with all the actors took place. A summer break was no longer necessary in 1994, as 104 episodes were available instead of the previous 52.

    Changeover to daily soap

    "Back to the roots": From January 2, 1995, the Marienhof was broadcast as a daily soap - in the form that was originally planned. The main aim of the station was to significantly rejuvenate the programs that had been seen by a predominantly older audience on the eve that was important for advertising, and the best way to do this seemed to be daily soaps as the current trend series. In addition to the newly commissioned format Verbotene Liebe , which started at the same time as the Marienhof on the updated program, they wanted a second daily series and therefore made the decision to convert the still quite successful, but somewhat “dusty” Marienhof into a daily Format to convert.

    The broadcast slot was retained, but the concept was completely rewritten. The cardinal problem was the present Weekly scripts, which could not be filmed under Daily conditions. They were rewritten in such a way that the stories were henceforth developed in blocks of five episodes and many new, especially younger roles could be introduced. Other characters that no longer fit into the new concept have been removed. Five actors from the Weekly time weren't ready to shoot under the new conditions (as much material had to be produced in one day as before in a week). However, since the roles were consistently created, they were reassigned.

    Thematically, "hotter irons" were now also dealt with, through which the content of this new era of series was started in advance. For example, the first episodes dealt with the issues of xenophobia and right-wing radicalism when the vegetable stand owned by the Turk, Sülo Özgentürk (portrayed by Giovanni Arvaneh ) fell victim to an arson attack. Just a month later, Mariella Lobefaro ( Lola Mendes ) was persecuted by her fiancé Tullio Rostini ( Marcus Grüsser ), who was a member of the Italian mafia . The consequences of National Socialism also found their way into the course of the plot - as at the beginning of the series using the example of the Jew Rosa Sievenich ( Marianne Lindner ), whereby the aspect of correct contextualization was disregarded: In the early days it was described that the then six-year-old son of the Sievenichs had been fetched by the authorities and was never heard from again, although it is later told in the Daily story that the five-year-old Erich was put on a children's train to London via a family friend, which the Germans then bombed . The reason given was that they could not hide the child for years with their mother in the basement of the Blauer Engel pub , which, in contrast to 1992, was now much larger. According to Karl's statements, his wife found refuge there from 1943 to 1945, while Gessner mentions in the first few episodes that his father helped Rosa escape to another country.

    On the optical level, v. a. The backdrop concept: The Erich-Kästner-Gymnasium , which was previously a comprehensive school, and the Wilder Mann pub were given new decorations from episode 175 and 179, giving them a more modern look. The outside view of the school was no longer located directly in the city district, where it was previously accessible via a school gate, but was a little outside and on a hill. The Poppels' magazine shop and Café Ortrud’s , both of which have helped shape the streetscape of the district since episode 1, have now been integrated into the gallery , which in the case of Ortrud’s , which changed seamlessly from episode 178 to 179, meant a significant reduction in space, although the previous However, the baked goods that were also sold were relocated to a directly connected shop area. The magazine shop, which was last seen in the usual look in episode 202, was only introduced as an extension to the stationery shop in episode 213, but from the outside it was already recognizable as the gallery's new rental space . All these changes took place in silence and were neither explained nor commented on in the course of the action.

    Thus the Marienhof , whose new episodes were broadcast daily from October 24, 1994, was back on the pulse of time and told exciting stories from the middle of life. The conversion of a weekly series format into a daily one, the planning of which began in November 1993, has remained unique on German television to this day. Production of the second Daily season started on November 15, 1995.


    • Until the introduction of daily broadcasting, each episode had an individual title. An exception in this respect is episode 287, which was broadcast on August 11, 1995 and is entitled "Murder in the Gallery".
    • During the broadcast of the first season, the respective episodes were repeated from October 1992 to April 1993 on the following day in various third programs. On January 13, 1996, the ARD began broadcasting a Saturday review at 18:40, the " Forbidden Love - and Marienhof Weekend", in which the series content of the past week was summarized in a nutshell. However, due to lack of success, this project was discontinued in March. From January to September 1998 a total of 168 older episodes were repeated in the morning program of ARD, from January to July 1998 again the first 52 episodes, this time on MDR .
    • From the 500th episode, big celebrations were held on the Bavaria site for anniversaries, each with a specific motto and for which the actors rehearsed special shows. For the 500th episode there was a big street party in Marienhof , for the 750th episode a big show was organized around the wedding of the characters Frank Töppers and Annalena Bergmann , and the celebration of the 1000th episode was entirely under the motto of the 1970s . Here, the actors sang to hits like Moscow by Dschinghis Khan or Aber Please mit Sahne by Udo Jürgens new texts that were trimmed to the content of the series.
    • With the story of the terminally ill Marco Busch ( Lutz Winde ), the series was able to record the highest ratings since the start of the Daily broadcast in February 1997 with over four million viewers, which made up an impressive 18.7 percent market share. This value increased even further later and was continuously at around 19.5 percent until 2000.
    • In autumn 1997, on the occasion of the fifth anniversary, the documentary 5 Years Marienhof - A Soap Celebrates Birthday was broadcast. In addition to excerpts from the episodes broadcast so far and interviews with some actors, the filming was accompanied and parts of the celebration for the 750th episode were shown.
    • In episode 1000 (July 16, 1998) viewers were allowed to determine for the first time in German series history how a cliffhanger should be resolved in the next episode. Via TED , they were able to determine from three further versions whether Tobias Kuczinski ( Sascha Heymans ) should take part in a dangerous test of courage or not. This concept was also applied to the 1500th episode, when series character Nik Schubert ( Sebastian Deyle ) was looking for his dream woman in the flirt show Herzblatt . This time the audience was allowed to choose one of the three candidates by phone call. In advance, the production, in cooperation with TV Movie and BRAVO, had called on young women between 16 and 25 years of age to apply for the guest role as sweetheart candidate through a personal introduction and a film-ready declaration of love on VHS . One of the three winners was the later leading actress Shirli Volk , who was not chosen as candidate 2 by the audience.
    • In 1999, 20 fans had the chance to go on holiday together with the actors Christof Arnold , Florian Karlheim , Judith Hildebrandt , Sascha Heymans , Melanie Marx and Annika Murjahn as part of the Marienhof goes to Malta campaign .
    • At the Marienhof trend scout campaign in autumn 1999, viewers were allowed to redress their stars. The best costumes were presented at a fashion show, the winners determined by a jury and the audience received an internship at Marienhof production.
    • In addition to the crossover with Herzblatt on August 3 and 4, 2000, another one with the medical series In allerfreund , which was shown in episode 2223 on September 11, 2003, took place. The actors Thomas Rühmann (Dr. Roland Heilmann) and Stephen Dürr (Vladi Nemetz) performed in their traditional IaF roles.
    • Some “staircase sequences” from the collapse shown in the 2500th episode were cut in 2011 into the telenovela Sturm der Liebe , also produced by Bavaria , in the 1383rd episode of which a bomb detonated in the Hotel Fürstenhof . Here were Sven Thiemann and Alfonso Losa short in their MH to see roles. This made sense because the Marienhof production was given the Villa Mann as a decoration for this filming in 2004, in which the interior shots of the Fürstenhof west wing have been taking place since 2006 .
    • From November 14, 2007 Marienhof was broadcast as the second German daily soap in 16: 9 . Previously, the station had already started broadcasting Verbotene Liebe from September 5, 2007 in this image format.
    • At the suggestion of the actor Christian Volkmann , the charity play Black Comedy was created in 2008 , the proceeds of which were largely donated to the non-profit Munich association ghettokids - social projects e. V. , which supports socially disadvantaged children. In addition to Volkmann, the case took over the role of the director, and the then current actors Giovanni Arvaneh , Christian Buse , Ivonne Polizzano , Jan Stapelfeldt and Wolfgang Seidenberg worked with Katja Keller , a former Marienhof actress in the turbulent Boulevard piece with. Nadja Juretzka and Werner Winkler could also be seen on stage. The play was performed from February 17 to September 25, 2009 in the Munich hurdy-gurdy theater.
    • From June 2009 to July 2010, the characters Toni Verhaag ( Sandra Koltai ) and Nic Stein ( Hendrik Borgmann ) told a love story based on a telenovela model for the first time , but without a voiceover . A “magic moment” in the collapsed gallery or during the rescue from the ruins was told over a whole year, how Toni became estranged from her husband David Verhaag ( Christian Volkmann ) and felt more and more drawn to the young doctor. In addition, there was the almost tragic end, as Toni only barely survived a shot by David . Finally, a Bavarian marriage took place in the original locations in Munich.
    • Before that, Amelie Verhaag ( Julika Wagner ) and Marlon Berger ( Simon-Paul Wagner ) celebrated a Bollywood- style wedding at the end of September 2009 . The film was shot with real pachyderms and Indian costumes. The comedian Tetje Mierendorf had a guest appearance as a pastor in this episode.
    • When the new backdrops were inaugurated in autumn 2009, an advertising campaign was started on the official website using the Internet blog T @ lk-On-Line . From December 16, 2009 , Inge Busch ( Viktoria Brams ) told viewers about the latest events in the district from her point of view - straight from the new laundromat, which also included internet stations. When Inge had to retire in August 2010, Simon-Paul Wagner , who played the journalist Marlon Berger in the series , took over this task until October 6, 2010. The blog was henceforth called MarlONline .
    • For the 18th anniversary, various highlight episodes were available for about a month from September 27, 2010 via the ARD media library. These were episodes 1, 672, 750, 835, 1064, 1252, 1493, 1518, 1546–1549, 1677–1678, 1745, 2000, 2885–2886, 3000, 3617, 3858 and 3871. January to May 18, 2011, these episodes were put online again as a farewell gift on a weekly basis, with the episodes 1546–1549, 1677–1678 and 2885–2886 being shown in a block, as they are thematically interlinked. The contributions were available until the last week of broadcast in June.
    • In the last scene shown between "series veteran" Viktoria Brams (Inge Busch) and Timothy Raschdorf (Tim Töppers) , the farewell of the entire ensemble was included, which said goodbye to the audience in the group picture. There were also many former actors who had come for the last day of shooting. These were Sabine Bohlmann (Jenny Deile) , Berrit Arnold (Annalena Bergmann) , Nicole Belstler-Boettcher (Sandra Behrens) , Leonore Capell (Andrea Süsskind) , Katja Keller (Billi Vogt) , Melanie Marx (Doro Stockner) , Diana Greifenstein (Anna Förtig) , Ygal Gleim (Ronny Berger) , Sebastian Gerold (Anton Klayber) , François Smesny (Dr. Roman Westermeier) , Carolin Gralla (Trixi van der Looh) , Donia Ben-Jemia (Lucy Vogt) , Shirli Volk ( Annika Kruse) and Christian Volkmann (David Verhaag) . The Marienhof finally said goodbye to the screens on June 15, 2011 with a short lettering thanking the audience for their loyalty and support over the years . The last episode achieved the best results in 2011 with a subdued 9.4 percent market share among the total audience and 8.7 percent among those relevant to advertising.

    Backdrops through the ages

    Construction of the first outdoor backdrop

    Originally, the Marienhof was supposed to extend from a school yard over the existing “Münchner Straße” backdrop to the decorations for the Löwengrube production . The idea failed, however, because the Marienhof needed significantly more locations for its many characters than the existing backdrops could offer. In addition, the Löwengrube series was to be continued through 1991, and the scenery on “Münchner Strasse” was not compatible with the ideas of the new series because of its houses and buildings in the style of the Second World War and the years after.

    So the Marienhof should have its own, self-contained decoration. The Swiss Rolf Engler was entrusted with the preparation of the design , after which a complete city district was finally built on an area of ​​4450 m², the foundation stone of which was laid in April 1991. With its 18 residential and commercial buildings as well as a school, one of the largest series exterior backdrops in Europe was created on the site of the film studios, with a facade area of ​​3170 m². Five buildings were completely developed and thus playable both inside and outside. In Hall 7 of the film site, additional apartments and offices as well as variable areas for rare scenes were built. The third location was a multi-storey film villa that housed the Wagner and Pritzwalk television families and the Sievenich guesthouse . The "poor poet" HW Jensen resided under the roof in a stylish attic apartment . A total of 40 variable rooms with a total area of ​​3000 m² were available. When the gallery setting was built in 1993 , another 20 rooms were added, which housed retail space.

    A new district is emerging

    After more than a thousand viewers had expressed their desire for a more urban quarter atmosphere, it was decided in January 2000 - probably also because of the establishing shots of Cologne, which were criticized by many fans - to reintegrate the outside scenery more strongly into the series. In May 2001, the ten-month construction of a new, expanded, updated and partially playable version of this street began, as the old backdrop was badly damaged by weather and age and a new building was more cost-effective and effective. The main aim was to prevent possible dangers when filming in the old sets and to make the houses in the new building much more functional than was previously the case.

    A renovation campaign within the series slowly began to convey the future change to the audience in a comprehensible way. The then producer Stephan Bechtle acted as gallery owner König on August 13, 2001 in succession 1744 and presented the residents with a model of the redesigned residential area. The first recordings in the new setting began on April 5, 2002 with the production of a new opening credits, which for the first time since 1994 no longer showed the actors in a species-specific setting, but in their typical living and working places.

    Previously, as part of the daily changeover, new sets were introduced into the series, but without explaining this to the viewer specifically in the action, as happened around 1993 with the establishment of the gallery . For example, on the one hand the outdated school setting was replaced by a more modern Erich-Kästner-Gymnasium , on the other hand the decorations of the Café Ortruds and the magazine shop of Hilde and Heinz Poppel , both of which were previously in the street scene, were integrated as new shop areas in the shopping arcade .

    The big relaunch

    When Simon Müller-Elmau took over the position of producer for Bea Schmidt at the beginning of 2009, he announced a revision of the series on a visual level. This was reflected in a new visual language, a lighting technology true to daylight and a new opening credits, giving the Marienhof a completely new look. The starting shot for this relaunch was delivered on April 17, 2009 with an organized explosion in the backdrops of the gallery , which at 1:21 p.m. turned six locations to rubble. The consequences of the collapse of the shopping arcade could be seen on television from June 19 to 29, 2009, the explosion itself on June 23 and 24.

    The first sign of the big changes was the rebuilding of the Wilder Mann . The bar backdrop was hit by water damage in episode 3565 and had to be renovated, which at the same time underwent a change to an Italian restaurant. The new Wild Man first appeared in episode 3591 on May 14, 2009.

    After the big explosion, the set designers and stage builders of the Daily began building further new sets in the finally completely redesigned Studio 6 on the Bavaria film site in Grünwald, which was officially inaugurated on October 21, 2009 in episode 3693 as part of a street festival were seen, however, from episode 3689.

    After the end of production

    After the format was discontinued, on February 14, 2011 - that is, in the first week after the last day of shooting - the dismantling of all the decorations in the series quarter began immediately. While the set scenes were also torn down a few days after the end of shooting, the large external setting should remain in place.

    In the week from February 21 to 26, 2011, fans were able to purchase a number of memorabilia from the huge collection of costumes. It was also possible to buy smaller props as souvenirs. In June, the production also raffled ten fan packages under different mottos with the corresponding articles. In addition, it was possible to acquire original props, costumes, photos and autographs for the last time. The main prize was the wedding dress that Sandra Koltai wore in her role Toni Port during the wedding with David Verhaag ( Christian Volkmann ) in September 2008.



    • On the occasion of World No Tobacco Day 2004, the series was awarded the smoke-free seal of the non-smoking alliance , as many viewers noticed positively that the main characters are non-smokers and that smoking characters are rare.


    surreptitious advertising

    In September 2005, a list of customers published by ARD announced that the New Social Market Economy initiative , among others , had placed scenes and dialogues on topics such as “economy, lean state, taxes” by means of surreptitious advertising for 58,670 euros. The union ver.di then asked the INSM to disclose its activities in the media. The deputy Verdi chairman Frank Werneke criticized that such a “case of manipulation ” exceeded “all previous assumptions about covert influence by the INSM”. Apparently they shy away from "the open discussion about the social and professional perspectives of young people" and instead sneak into the youth media. Further orders concerned the representation of pharmacies as competent advisors, the positive representation of alcohol consumption in general and that of Ouzo in particular, the theming of certain diseases and other opinion- making , far beyond pure product placement , so that the manipulations influenced the entire course of action in such a way that a simple omission after the manipulation became known was no longer possible.

    The association LobbyControl criticized the initiative with the surreptitious advertising the Broadcasting Treaty and professional standards of public relations such as the European Code de Lisbonne disregarded. The INSM then stated that it was only a matter of imparting “basic knowledge about our economic system” and emphasizing the “importance of personal commitment when looking for an apprenticeship or job”. However, she later admitted that media cooperation in the case of the Marienhof series was a mistake. However, the initiative had been assured several times by the production company that the form of cooperation was in accordance with the State Broadcasting Agreement and that the responsible ARD editorial team would accept the pieces, which turned out to be wrong. The management of the initiative rejected the accusation that the INSM was manipulating the media, which the ver.di union had made in its press release of September 20, 2005.


    The series comprises 4053 episodes that were produced over a period of 19 years. When the format celebrated its 18th anniversary on October 1, 2010, around 160 leading actors, 7,300 supporting actors and 88,000 extras who had worked on the series to date were recorded.

    About teNeues a brochure calendar for the coming year was available between 1999 and 2005, respectively.

    CDs & radio play cassettes

    From 1995 to 2002 six recordings were released, which on the one hand made connections to the series, for example through the respective title songs, some musical love motifs used in the course of the plot or songs by actors, but on the other hand also included chart successes at the time that did not directly relate to the series related goods:

    • Marienhof (Polystar, 1995)
    • A lot will happen - Marienhof (ZYX, 1995)
    • Marienhof Vol. 2 (Polystar, 1996)

From February to May, fans could choose their favorite songs for the playlist on the official website. For this purpose, 20 titles were proposed three times. With great attention to detail, a twelve-page booklet was also designed, which tells the most beautiful moments from almost two decades with a small picture story. For this purpose, previously unpublished photos of the series and actors were used.

    In 1998, two radio play cassettes were available, each containing a storyline from the series. The original soundtrack of the TV episodes was used and supplemented with music and passages in which a narrator ( Michael Harck ) explains the plot.

    • Tim's kidnapping ( carousel )
    • Tobias and Lee (carousel)

    Videos & DVDs

    In 1996, a 20-minute pastiche of the filming of the series was produced with And daily greets the Marienhof . Based on an idea by Cyrus David and Peter Zwicker , a humorous look behind the scenes of the everyday filming was created with the participation of many actors and employees. The film could be ordered on video through the series fan club.

    In 1999, Frieder Scheiffele and Jonny Freifeld produced the 96-minute documentary Making of Marienhof , which was also available on video from the series' fan club. A comprehensive and chronological insight into the history of the series is presented, starting with its creation, dealing with the conversion to the daily soap and finally allowing almost all of the leading actors who were active in 1999 to have their say. Excerpts from the series round off the film.

    In 2002 Karussell released the video Behind the Scenes of Marienhof , which was also produced under the guidance of Scheiffele and Freifeld. The main focus is on the construction of the new external backdrop. In addition, some game scenes with Wolfgang Seidenberg , Sven Thiemann and Berrit Arnold were produced to accompany the viewer through the 60-minute film. It also provides insights into the work behind the scenes and entertains with interviews, commented scenes, the most beautiful mishaps and all previous opening credits.

    On March 11, 2011, Diamant Video released the first DVD box for the series, which contains episodes 170–219, the first 50 daily episodes.

    Two days after the last episode was broadcast, a second set was released on June 17, 2011 with the title Goodbye Marienhof - The Ultimate Fan Box , which in addition to the first ten series episodes from 1992 also contains 20 highlight episodes (episodes 53, 667, 699, 750, 810, 1000, 1677-1678, 1745, 1920, 1929, 2500-2503, 3000-3001, 3617, 3858 and 4053). A bonus DVD is also included with the motto "Origin and Farewell". It contains the documentaries Making of Marienhof (1999) and Behind the Scenes of Marienhof (2002), the two alternative versions of the 1000th episode, a day of shooting with Michael Jäger (Matthias Kruse) and a set tour with Antonio Putignano (Stefano Maldini) , the making of the house collapse in the 2500th episode, impressions from the last day of shooting, the demolition of the sets, outtakes and the special Marienhof in 6 minutes , in which Julia Dahmen (Constanze Riemer) gives a rough overview of the relationships between the individual roles .
