In the four-hour VOX documentary ´50 years of Mallorca – the changing face of the party Island´ shown on 15th October, key witnesses from the Island – hoteliers, residents and journalists, including DELUXE editor Birgit Unger – provided the commentary between scenes of the horse and cart and cabriolet, between Franco and modern Spain, between the Boeing 727 and the Airbus jet, to give an eloquent overall picture.
It also interweaves a photo shoot with actress Sonja Kirchberger with footage of the Mallorquín Matanza. A unique world, that also brought forth DELUXE magazine as the expression and the voice of its most elegant facets – a whole ten years ago.view
Red @ the city -Mallorca (2011)

Hallo Deutschland (2011)
‘hallo deutschland’ reports on Mallorca as a five-star destination
In mid June, as part of the programme ‘hallo deutschland’, the television channel ZDF gave coverage to Mallorca as a luxury destination. The channel accompanied the editor of DELUXE Mallorca magazine Birgit Unger as she worked and interviewed her about her private life. This is all currently of interest because the glossy magazine Deluxe Mallorca is now also on sale at selected kiosks in airports and railway stations in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The show gave readers a glimpse behind the scenes of the magazine. ZDF observed her, for example, on the high seas on a visit to Sunseeker. For anyone who does not (so far) own a property on the Island, hotels are an important starting point. In one of the most exclusive, the St. Regis Mardavall, Birgit met up with the hotel manager Christian Hollweck, who showed her one of the suites – and also specialities from the kitchen of head chef Thomas Kahl. All in all, an interesting insight into the work of the Deluxe editor, and into what interests the top ten thousand in Mallorca.view
Mieten, kaufen, wohnen (April 2011)
German TV Channel VOX was viewing villas with Birgit Unger
In upmarket second home locations, and Mallorca has been one of these for a long time now, the interior designer is as important to a real-estate agent as the elves are to Santa Claus. The German TV channel Vox once again demonstrated this truth in its highly successful show ‘Mieten, Kaufen, Wohnen’ (Rent, Buy, Live), shown on 13th April. The programme, which attracts premium viewing figures among German TV audiences, focused once again on top-end modern villas in Mallorca. In the programme, real-estate agent Marcel Remus showed Birgit Unger, editor of LE DELUXE, two upmarket properties in the sought-after southwest of the Island.view
Mieten, kaufen, wohnen (December 2010)
The Island’s potential has been discovered by the successful German documentary series ‘Mieten, Kaufen, Wohnen’ (Rent, Buy, Live), which for the past three years has been shown on Vox at 6pm almost every evening, and has achieved peak viewing figures of up to two million viewers.
The show offers viewers an insight into the local market, which is markedly different from that in Germany. At the moment, the south-west of the Island is in particular demand, especially Puerto Andratx and Sol de Mallorca. These were also the places chosen by Birgit Unger, publisher of the magazine DELUXE Mallorca, when she viewed two properties together with Marcel Remus for the Vox series Mallorca special. “The filming portrays the exclusive side of the Island and also the glossy magazine Deluxe Mallorca.” The first episodes of the show, which is produced by Cologne-based company Fandango, were broadcast in December 2010.
Sanlorenzo SL82 (2009)
In August 2009, Kurt Lehmann, Managing Director Sanlorenzo Baleari, exclusively invited a select number of clients to the 2-star-Restaurant Tristán in Puerto Portals, Mallorca, for a cocktail reception and gourmet dinner to present a Sanlorenzo SL82 – a classic yacht with an innovative interior design concept and a new flybridge-layout, that could be viewed at the Tristán pier during the event. The SL82 is a motor-yacht suited to travel long distances but also, as it is easy to control, for weekend cruising.
Amongst the many high-profile guests of the Sanlorenzo presentation was Boris Becker with wife Lilly. Deluxe Mallorca reported about both the yacht and the event.
Hallo Deutschland ZDF (2008)
Mallorca was the logical choice to join Moscow, Dubai, Vienna and Munich as the latest venue to host a luxury trade fair.

A get-together for exceptional people from Mallorca and all over Europe, this highlight of the social calendar showcased goods and products from over thirty select providers such as Quality Center Mallorca, who presented the latest Maserati Granturismo S, two Bentleys, the Aston Martin V8 Roadster, a Lotus Elise and the Ferrari F430 Spider. Other exhibitors included Aquadreams Balears, Zenana Jewellery and Hästens. There was also a camera team from Germany’s second main broadcaster ZDF to cover the occasion.
Presenter Stefanie Wolf interviewed several of the exhibitors as well as Deluxe Mallorca editor Birgit Unger for the TV show ‘Hallo Deutschland’.
