Angela Merkel

Politics podcast: Merkel's last dance

The era of Angela Merkel is coming to an end. The actions, and inaction, by Germany's chancellor have reshaped Europe for years. Our hosts follow her moves over her last months in office — possibly the toughest yet.

Merkel's last dance (final episode): the legacy interview (E15)

Do you remember a Germany that wasn't run by Angela Merkel? Many people don't. Germans went to the polls again in September 2021 - and Angela Merkel did not run again. Now, with no clear successor, a power vacuum is brewing in Berlin. These last few months will determine Merkel's legacy, and the future of Germany and Europe.

So: How did she get to where she is? How did she manage to stay in power for so long? And who will take over as German chancellor? DW's political team talks to colleagues and critics. Tune in to "Merkel's Last Dance".

Your hosts:

Michaela Küfner, Richard Walker, Max Hofmann, Ines Pohl, Janosch Delcker, Nina Haase
