Seven couples were recalled into the final by the judges, out of these two couples who danced this competition from the first round. Christian Lang / Martina Bruhns was one of these couples and with a difference of one point ahead, they finished sixth ahead of Carsten and Alexandra Petsch. The second couple without exemption was Sebastian Spörl / Kristina Rodionova who finished fifth. Jörg Gutmann / Dr. Isabel Matthes, fifth on the last German Championship, improved their result at Hessen tanzt and finished fourth. Victor Fischer / Alexandra Rehn also moved up one place compared to their result from last year and finished third. German Vice Champions Thorsten Strauß / Alma Marit Herrmann were placed third only in Slowfox, therefore their runners-up position was not in danger. Only four first placings Thorsten Zirm / Sonja Schwarz had to give to their fellow competitors, therefore defending their title was not a problem.
