The Gerlings

Gerling - the name stands for one of the largest insurance groups in Europe and for a unique success story. In Cologne, the name Gerling also stands for a district and a family that has helped shape the face of the city over many years, not only through the traditional Gerling Prize. But who is behind this name, who are the makers of success and what ups and downs has the company and the Gerling family gone through in its eventful history?

BROADVIEW TV reports for the first time in detail on the exciting and eventful history of one of the most important German entrepreneurial families. Never-before-published footage of the family will be shown, as well as exclusive interviews with family members, contemporary witnesses and long-time companions of the group.
