The world record for the most magicians in a magic show was broken on Sunday night, when 106 sorcerers appeared in a gala in the southern German town of Tübingen.

The show, featuring illusionists from Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Spain, broke the previous record of 62, set in Italy two years ago. Official Guinness judge Seyda Subasi-Gemici was on hand to present the magicians with an official certificate in front of the audience of 370.

The three-hour gala show was put on to celebrate the centenary of the magician's society “Magic Circle” in Germany. It included three magic world champions, two world championship runners-up and several other international prizewinning conjurers.

The show also included local state Transport Minister Winfried Hermann and Olympic champion athlete Dieter Baumann, who were conjured onto the stage in a car.
