Germany 1985

At the Eurovision Song Contest 1985 Germany was represented by the band Wind, with the song Für Alle. Für Alle was the winner of the German national final, held on March 21. This was the first of three appearances by Wind at Eurovision; they would also represent Germany in 1987 and 1992.

Before the final there were 2 semi-finals. The German semi-final was broadcast on several radio stations, and around 300 people were selected by a German polling institute to select the 12 finalists. The semi-final was in two separate parts which were broadcast on different days.

The German Final was held on March 21st at the German Theatre in Munich, hosted by Wolfgang Mascher & Margit Geissler. The winning song was chosen by the votes of approximately 500 people who were chosen by an institute to be representative of the German population.
