Paul Lincke (November 7, 1866 – September 4, 1946) was a German composer. His march Berliner Luft ("Berlin Air") is the hymn of Berlin.
The march Berliner Luft comes from Lincke's 1899 operetta Frau Luna about a trip to the moon in a hot air balloon, where an adventurous party of prominent Berliners meet Frau Luna and her court. Other Lincke operettas include Im Reiche des Indra (In the Kingdom of Indra) and Lysistrata. (The latter includes the song "Glühwürmchen," translated and arranged in the 1940s by Johnny Mercer as "Glow Little Glow Worm" and performed by the Mills Brothers among others.) He also composed the piece wedding dance played in Titanic 1998 version which is played while the ship is going down and in the dining room in earlier scenes
