The Eurovision fan clubs from Israel and Germany invite you
to the seventh Eurovision Weekend in Berlin!

The Eurovision Weekend has developed over the past six years and we have celebrated great weekends together with OGAE Finland, OGAE Israel, OGAE UK, OGAE Denmark, OGAE Netherlands and OGAE Malta. With the introduction of the OGAEvision Song Contest we copied the idea of asking the winner of the competition to host (or co-host) the next edition, and so for the second time the fan clubs from Israel and Germany host the Eurovision Weekend together, due to Rilli Willows victory last year.
Coming together in Berlin two months after the Song Contest is still the perfect occasion for a reunion of the Eurovision family.
So welcome to all Golden Boys and Wonder Women, come and celebrate Eurovision together and feel alive: Concert with Eurovision Stars from both countries, OGAEvision Song Contest, parties, karaoke, Eurovision Quiz, German-Israeli Brunch and lots more…fans and friends are very welcome to the seventh edition of the Eurovision Weekend.

Our Eurovision Stars:

   
 Moran Mazor
Israel 2013
Bianca Shomburg
Germany 1997
Cindy Berger
Germany 1974

The OGAEvision Song Contest:

The OGAEvision Song Contest has become a key element of the Eurovision Weekend and is a Mini-Eurovision among the fan clubs. Every member fan club of OGAE International has the right to take part, a maximum of twelve fan clubs will compete in the contest.

The fan club chooses the participant to represent his fan club, so in the OGAEvision Song Contest singers from twelve different countries compete for the trophy, backed by their national fan clubs.

The rules are closely related to the actual Eurovision Song Contest, paying tribute also to its long tradition, like the voting procedure, with national jury and audience vote.

The winner of the OGAEvision Song Contest will perform on the Eurovision Cruise in September, organised by our first partner fan club OGAE Finland.

Like in the past years there will be two tours offered, one classic tour and one special tour, this year it will be “Jewish Life in Berlin”.
While the classical tour goes from the H 4 Hotel via Alexanderplatz down the boulevard “Unter den Linden” along the most important sights, the special tour will focus on the Jewish Life in Berlin – now and then, and will lead you to Spandauer Vorstadt, the Jewish Quarter of Berlin, passing Oranienburger Strasse and the neighbouring streets with the New Synagogue, Jewish Highschool and Centrum Judaicum. And of course some kosher food will be available in this lively part of Berlin-Mitte.
You can register in advance by e-mail to cityguides@eurovision-weekend.de or on Friday night at the Welcome Party of the Eurovision Weekend directly at the info desk at the entrance to Restaurant März.
