The group was started in 1985 by the composer Hanne Haller. The other members of the band at that time were Alexander "Ala" Heiler, Christine von Kutschenbach, Rainer H?glmeier, Willie Jakob, Sami Kalifa and Petra Scheeser.
The group has participated in the Eurovision Song Contest for Germany three times. The first time was shortly after the formation of the band, in Eurovision 1985. With the song F?r alle they finished second, just behind the winning duo Bobbysocks from Norway. In 1987 Wind returned to the contest, performing Lass die Sonne in dein Herz in Brussels, Belgium. Once again they achieved a second place, this time behind Johnny Logan who represented Ireland. Lass die Sonne in dein Herz has since become the band's trademark tune, including welcoming visitors to their official website. Wind entered Eurovision for a third time in 1992 in Malm?, Sweden, with the song Tr?ume sind f?r alle da. This time they were not as successful, finishing 16th of 23 participants. According to John Kennedy O'Connor in his book The Eurovision Song Contest: The Official History,  Wind are the only act to ever finish second in the contest on two occasions.
The group is a heavy hit-producing band. In the period since 1997 they have released more than 15 singles.
As of 2006, Wind consists of Andreas Lebbing (who sang lead on Lass die Sonne in dein Herz in the 1987 Eurovision Song Contest), Nastasja Markinovic, Albert Oberloher, and Iris Criens.
