The final was held at the NDR TV studios in Hamburg, hosted by Henno Lohmeyer. Six songs took part, with the winning song chosen by an 11-member jury who each awarded one point to their favourite song. "Paradies, wo bist du?" was the choice of 8 of the jurors.
On the night of the final Wiesner performed 5th in the running order, following Ireland and preceding Austria. Voting was by each national jury awarding 5-3-1 to their top 3 songs, and at the close "Paradies, wo bist du?" was one of four songs (along with the entries from Belgium, Finland and Spain) which had failed to pick up a single point. This was the fourth consecutive contest in which four countries had failed to score, and a second consecutive nul-points for Germany, their last to date. The German jury awarded its 5 points to contest winners Luxembourg.
