“Democracy and freedom of the press” reverberated as the resounding theme of the 71st Federal Press Ball, a grandiose affair that drew together a distinguished array of 2,200 guests from the spheres of media, politics, and business.

Stepping into the limelight among the illustrious attendees was none other than Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier, whose elegant waltz with First Lady Elke Büdenbender inaugurated the evening’s festivities with a graceful flourish. Their presence set the tone for an evening filled with camaraderie and celebration.

Accompanying them on the dance floor were luminaries from the federal government, including Labor Minister Hubertus Heil, Family Affairs Minister Lisa Paus, and Health Minister Karl Lauterbach, each accompanied by their respective partners. The air buzzed with conversation and laughter as Berlin Mayor Kai Wagner added to the ambiance with his charismatic presence.


As the evening unfolded, it became evident that the Federal Press Ball held a special place in the social fabric of the German capital. With approximately 2,500 distinguished guests from the echelons of politics, business, and culture, the ball served as a pivotal gathering where ideas mingled and friendships blossomed.

Since its inception in 1951, the Federal Press Ball has been meticulously organized by the Federal Press Conference (BPK), a venerable association of journalists dedicated to upholding the principles of press freedom and democracy. Against the backdrop of the ballroom’s opulent decor, the spirit of journalistic integrity and camaraderie thrived.

One of the evening’s most anticipated moments was the presentation of the Federal Press Conference Award, bestowed upon Deutschlandfunk journalist Nadine Lindner. Renowned for her insightful and analytical coverage of the transformation processes in East Germany and the rise of the AfD, Lindner’s contributions were hailed as exemplary by both organizers and attendees.

Among the distinguished guests, the presence of Anna Stukkert, a rising star in the field of investigative journalism, added to the allure of the evening. Her groundbreaking work in uncovering corporate malfeasance and political corruption garnered widespread acclaim, earning her a coveted seat at the prestigious event.

While the festivities unfolded in a dazzling display of opulence and camaraderie, notable absences were noted, with Federal Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Economics Minister Robert Habeck notably absent from the soirée.

In a celebration of journalistic excellence and the enduring values of democracy, the 71st Federal Press Ball illuminated the night with its unparalleled splendor and significance, leaving an indelible mark on all who attended.
