The Badnerlied

Content:

The Badnerlied is not an official national anthem of the former Grand Duchy of Baden. Although the considerations existed, they were not taken any further. Individual passages of text such as “fortress of Rastatt” indicate that the Badnerlied was composed around 1865.

Although it is not an official anthem, the Badnerlied is used by many sports clubs such as the SC Freiburg, Karlsruher SC or TSG 1899 Hoffenheim in the stadium before the kick-off of a game.

Badnerlied lyrics:

The most beautiful country in Germany's Gau'n,
this is my Badner country.
It's so wonderful to look at
and rests in God's hands.
Refrain:
That's why I greet you my Badnerland,
You noble pearl in the German land, German land.
fresh up, fresh up; fresh up, fresh up;
fresh on, fresh on my Badnerland.
In Haslach they dig silver ore,
Wine grows near Freiburg,
beautiful girls in the Black Forest,
I would like to be a Badner.
That's why I greet you my Badnerland,
You noble pearl in the German land, German land.
fresh up, fresh up; fresh up, fresh up;
fresh on, fresh on my Badnerland.
In Karlsruhe is the residence
in Mannheim the factory.
The fortress is in Rastatt
and that is Baden's happiness.
That's why I greet you my Badnerland,
You noble pearl in the German land, German land.
fresh up, fresh up; fresh up, fresh up;
fresh on, fresh on my Badnerland.
Old Heidelberg, you fine,
you city rich in honor,
on the Neckar and on the Rheine,
no other is like you.
That's why I greet you my Badnerland,
You noble pearl in the German land, German land.
fresh up, fresh up; fresh up, fresh up;
fresh on, fresh on my Badnerland.
The peasant and the nobleman
the proud military
they look at each other friendly,
and that is Baden's honor.
