"Dieser Traum darf niemals sterben" ("This dream must never die") was the German entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1991, performed in German by Atlantis 2000. The song was selected to represent Germany by televoting.[1]

The song was performed seventeenth on the night (following Finland's Kaija with "Hullu yö" and preceding Belgium's Clouseau with "Geef het op"). At the close of voting, it had received 10 points, placing 18th in a field of 22.

The song is a dramatic ballad, with the band singing that humanity must learn to overcome its propensity towards hate in order to achieve unity. "This dream", they sing, "must never die". Atlantis 2000 also recorded an English version of the song, entitled "Never Ending Dream".

It was succeeded as German representative at the 1992 Contest by Wind with "Träume sind für alle da".
