WDR 2 Klassik was a radio program of the West German Broadcasting Corporation .


WDR 2 Klassik offered classical music and current information around the clock. The verbal contributions were takeovers of WDR 2 and were broadcast with a small time delay to the main program of WDR 2, as the classic titles were usually played.

If a pure music program such as Yesterday or the music club was broadcast in the main program of WDR 2 , a radio concert with longer pieces of music ran on WDR 2 Klassik. During the night, the ARD night concert was taken over.

As part of the 12th State Treaty on Broadcasting, WDR 2 Klassik ceased  its programming operations on May 28, 2009 - as did 1 Live Kunst . The successor was the Internet service Mein WDR Radio , which was switched off again on August 24, 2009 and offered two programs with classical music as a live stream, which in addition to music also included contributions and broadcasts from the other radio programs. The two programs focused on politics and business or science and education.


The distribution channels were taken over by the children's program KIRAKA after the termination .
