The festive aspect and friendly atmosphere of the Gala does not detract from the convincing, serious and professional track record of Diplomatisches Magazin, founded in 1959. Over time, it has evolved and adapted to the context, environment, partners, readers and twists and turns of history. The Review has become the first and only leading monthly magazine for diplomacy, international relations, business and lifestyle in Germany. All the more reason to celebrate!

More than 400 guests honoured this grandiose and unique Gala with their presence, including many ambassadors and other high-ranking political and business representatives.  Throughout the ceremony, guests enjoyed the entertainment, concerts and above all, were taken on a culinary journey around the world.
The Diplomatisches Magazin team, under the leadership of Dr. Irene Ernst, has received many gifts. The sense of sharing also marked the evening, so these gifts were offered to make the happiness of a few privileged people, chosen by drawing lots. Mrs. Le Chargé d’affaires a.i, to her pleasant surprise, was among the lucky ones.

The theme “Life only begins at 60”, opens up all hopes. The Great Festival ended with a note of optimism, to the great satisfaction of the organizers, long-standing friends, and all the guests.

Congratulations to the whole team! Thanks to all sponsors and partners!
Long live to Diplomatisches Magazin, best wishes for the next 60 years!
