Daniela Katzenberger was born on October 1, 1986 in Ludwigshafen. She grew up with her siblings, a brother and half-sister Jennifer Frankhauser in Ludwigshafen. Mother Iris Klein and sister Jennifer are also not camera shy and can occasionally be seen on TV in Germany.

Daniele Katzenberger knew early on that she belonged on television. She spared no effort to get on television. She applied to an online casting agency and was selected in April 2009 for the format “Up and away – my foreign diary” on the VOX television channel. The camera accompanied the newly minted nude model on her trip to the USA, where she wanted to meet Playboy boss Hugh Hefner and apply to be a Playboy bunny. However, this attempt failed, as did an application to the American restaurant chain Hooters.
After her return to Germany, however, “the cat” was by no means idle. Also some producers were through the show “Up and away. My foreign diary” became aware of the funny, fun-loving blonde. The format “Goodbye Germany! The Emigrants”, also from the TV station VOX, accompanied her again a year later.
Daniela Katzenberger, together with the Leipzig restaurateur Martin Koslik, had decided to build the “Café Katzenberge” in Santa Ponca on Mallorca. The broadcasts with Daniela Katzenberger became a hit and the Café Katzenberger was a complete success. However, due to time constraints, this was no longer the case for Daniela Katzenberger.
The following year she got her own docu-soap: Daniela Katzenberger – naturally blonde. She continued her collaboration with the broadcaster VOX in 2014, with the format “Daniela Katzenberger – of course beautiful”. Daniela Katzenberger is said to have earned around one million euros through her TV shows on VOX alone.
