“Welcome 2023” – the New Year’s Eve countdown: Andrea Kiewel and Johannes B. Kerner welcome you to the New Year’s Eve show from their lounge right in front of the Brandenburg Gate. This is how you see the ZDF New Year’s Eve show live on the Internet.

With “Welcome 2023” Andrea Kiewel and Johannes B. Kerner welcome the viewers live from Berlin on New Year’s Eve, Thursday, December 31, 2022, from 8.15 p.m. to the big New Year’s Eve countdown on ZDF.

The moderation duo is supported by pop star Sasha. The musical guests are Scorpions, DJ BoBo, Malik Harris, Münchener Freiheit, Kamrad, YouNotUs, Alex Christensen, Jupiter Jones, Laurell, Moncrieff, Aura Dione, Calum Scott and many more – first-class entertainment under the motto “Celebrate at the Gate”.

Already at 7.25 p.m. on New Year’s Eve, ZDF is presenting the comedy annual review “Thank you for nothing, 2020”. At the end of the year there are once again the best and most snappy punch lines – from the “Anstalt” to the “ZDF Magazin Royale”. From 8.15 p.m., Andrea Kiewel and Johannes B. Kerner celebrate the New Year.

Afterwards, from 0.35 a.m., the “ZDF Kultnacht” celebrates the decade of the 70s with music. The biggest stars and their unforgettable hits can be seen for three hours.

The traditional fireworks at the Brandenburg Gate will be canceled this year. At the ZDF New Year’s Eve show “Welcome 2021”, which will be broadcast from there without an audience this year, there will be no fireworks, the broadcaster announced on Monday on request. It would have been possible: The responsible district office in Mitte had approved such a fireworks display, it said. The station’s spokeswoman did not initially say why ZDF did without it.

Stream the latest series and top blockbusters for 3 months now, but only pay for 2! After that, the offer can be canceled at any time.

The New Year’s Eve party at the Brandenburg Gate, which normally drew hundreds of thousands of people, was canceled this year due to the Corona crisis. Instead, the ZDF show with Andrea Kiewel and Johannes B. Kerner is to be broadcast from there.
