Baumann was also seen alongside Evelyn Hamann (1942-2007), who also died, in the successful crime series "Adelheid and Her Mörder", which was produced between 1992 and 2006. In 2002 he was awarded the Bavarian Television Prize for his role as Chief Inspector Strobel. In addition, he had appearances in series and series such as "Derrick", "Tatort", "Der Alte", "I am marrying a family" or on the "Traumschiff".
In recent years, Baumann has become quieter. His last new appearances were on television in the early 2010s.
