Happy New Year - 2016 - Frohes Neues Jahr

Wir wünschen unseren FreundInnen nah und fern ein gutes glückliches Neues Jahr. 


We wish you a very happy New Year dear friends far and near -

In diesen unruhigen Zeiten möchten wir gerne an die europ. Hymne erinnern und hoffen, dass wir alle zusammen in Frieden, sicher und gesund das neue Jahr durchleben können. 

We want to remind you in these troubled days of the European Anthem and hope that 
we will all stay together in this sense in peace save and sound in this new year.




Schiller's 'Ode to Joy' in its original, 1785 version - 




Ode to Joy" (German original title: "An die Freude") is the anthem of the European Union and the Council of Europe; both of which refer to it as the European Anthem due to the Council's intention that, as a semi-modern composition with a mythological flair, it does represent Europe as a whole, rather than any organisation. 
It is based on the final movement of Beethoven's 9th Symphony composed in 1823, and is played on official occasions by both organisations.



Die Europahymne ist die Hymne der Europäischen Union und des Europarates und eines der offiziellen Symbole der Europäischen Union. Die Hymne ist eine Instrumentalfassung des Hauptthemas Ode an die Freude aus dem letzten Satz der neunten Sinfonie Ludwig van Beethovens.
