Steffi Czerny receives Bavarian Order of Merit

Bavarian Prime Minister Markus Söder awarded the Bavarian Order of Merit to 64 personalities at a ceremony at the Antiquarium of the Munich Residence last Wednesday. DLD founder Steffi Czerny was presented with the prestigious award in the form of a Maltese cross as well. Apart from Czerny, Söder honored cabaret artist Django Asül and film director Franz-Xaver Bogner, among others.

Outstanding commitment


„Bavaria is as strong as the people in our state. By awarding the Bavarian Order of Merit, we are publicly saying thank you and acknowledging outstanding commitment in many areas, ranging from social to church work, research, science and art to the economy and medicine. The personalities we are honoring today are role models and a source of strength for our state!"

Markus Söder, Bavarian Prime Minister


At the award ceremony, the chairman of the Bavarian broadcasting corporation, Ulrich Wilhelm, gave a lecture about “Bavaria as a cultural state: What holds our state together”.

Services to the Free State of Bavaria

The Bavarian Order of Merit has the shape of a Maltese cross and has been awarded “as a grateful acknowledgement in honor of outstanding services to the Free State of Bavaria and the Bavarian people” since 11 June 1957. What is special about the Bavarian Order of Merit is that the number of living awardees is limited to 2000.

Steffi Czerny was already awarded the State Medal for outstanding services to the Bavarian economy (2014), as well as the “Europe Medal” for outstanding services to Bavaria in a united Europe (2015).
