The prize is awarded to personalities, initiatives, artists, politicians or institutions for outstanding services and achievements about Europe and its people.

Singer Klaus Meine and guitarist Rudolph Schenker were on hand to represent the Scorpions at the event, which saw German writer and singer Heinz Rudolf Kunze declare that the band had "earned their popularity with indomitable will, perseverance and hard work."

Meine performed the 1990 Scorpions classic, "Wind Of Change", with the Beethoven Orchestra Bonn as part of the evening's entertainment.
