NDR Kultur is a radio program produced by the North German Broadcasting Corporation , which is broadcast across the German federal states of Hamburg , Schleswig-Holstein , Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and Lower Saxony via VHF . The radio house is located in Hamburg on Rothenbaumchaussee. The program consists largely of classical music as well as other cultural elements. Radio plays, but also literary and religious topics are also included.


On December 1, 1956, the third NDR radio program began broadcasting daily from 8:15 pm to 10:30 pm or midnight via VHF. On January 1, 1994, NDR3 was reformed, and overlaps with NDR4 should be avoided. Large-scale e-music programs were broadcast during the day and cultural word-of-mouth programs in the evening.

The broadcaster Free Berlin and the Ostdeutsche Rundfunk Brandenburg took over the program from NDR 3 on October 8, 1997 and added regional windows in their broadcasting area. The new name of the joint cultural radio was Radio 3 . After the SFB left, NDR and ORB Radio 3 continued alone from January 1, 2001 to December 31, 2002. Today's culture and music program began broadcasting under the name “NDR Kultur” on January 1, 2003. Since November 22, 2011, the station has been receivable via DAB + .

The programs Classic in the day , Matinee and Classic on the go are the same in structure and character.

Every hour between 6 a.m. and midnight there is a three-minute short news broadcast on the hour, a short verbatim contribution at quarter and three quarters of an hour and a slightly longer verbal contribution from the subject of culture at half an hour . According to the 8, 12 and 17 o'clock news there is in each case under the heading Culture currently a seven-minute short program with an average of three Einspielern .

The program on Saturday and Sunday differs from that on working days . At the weekend, more requested concerts and programs with columnist, cultural and spiritual topics as well as sacred music (the latter mainly in the morning hours) are broadcast.


After a change in the program scheme, with which, among other things, only individual movements of classical works were usually broadcast in the daily program, public criticism was loud. She opposes a "flattening" of the program and is of the opinion that it is still necessary to broadcast entire works of classical pieces in the daily program.


The station can be received via FM , DVB-S ( Astra ), Internet livestream and DAB + . The strongest FM transmitter in Germany is used in Rostock .
