Germany was represented by Inge Brück, with the song "Anouschka", at the 1967 Eurovision Song Contest, which took place on 8 April in Vienna. As in 1966 the German entry was chosen internally, rather than through a public final, by broadcaster NDR.

At Eurovision[edit]

On the night of the final Brück performed ninth in the running order, following Finland and preceding Belgium. Voting in 1967 reverted to the system of 10-member national juries with one vote per member, and at the close of voting "Anouschka" had received 7 points (unusually, via 1 point apiece from seven different countries), placing Germany joint 8th (with Sweden and Yugoslavia) of the 17 entries. The German jury awarded its highest mark (4) to Ireland.[1]

"Anouschka" was a sizeable hit in German-speaking markets, and remains one of the better-remembered German Eurovision entries of the 1960s.
