Germany 1971

Germany was represented by Katja Ebstein, with the song Diese Welt, at the 1971 Eurovision Song Contest, which took place on 3 April in Dublin. Katja Ebstein was chosen internally to be the German representative, and the song was selected at the German national final, Ein Lied für Dublin, held on 27 February. This was the second of Ebstein's three appearances for Germany at Eurovision and she became the second performer, after Margot Hielscher, to represent the country in successive years.

The final was held at the TV studios in Frankfurt, hosted by Günther Schramm. Ebstein performed six songs and the winner was chosen by a 10-member jury, who each awarded between 1 and 5 points to each song.

The results:

1. Diese welt, 43 points
2. Alle Menschen auf der Erde, 37 points
3. Ich glaub' an die Liebe auf der Welt, 37 points
4. Es wird wieder gescheh'n, 28 points
5. Der Mensch lebt von der Liebe, 27 points
6. Ich bin glücklich mit dir, 25 points

At the ESC in Dublin Katja came 3rd.
