A city by the sea for thousands of years. So Hedeby may have looked like, seaport and commercial center on the German Baltic Sea coast. The 12-metre-high protective wall which semicircular enclosed Haithabu, is still visible today. 930 years ago, this prehistoric settlement in the war was destroyed and forever abandoned by their inhabitants. Since the beginning of this century, dug in here and research. Reconstruction of the own past: tourists and school groups the scientists here look over their shoulder. Recently Haithabu was once again of talk: a large Viking ship was lifted. Now the site is searched by small parts.
The finds are collected and spotted in the vicinity of 9th. Museum and research facility: Scientists and researchers of from various disciplines working hand-in-hand here, establish links, complete the image of a sunken era.

"Again over the bridge!"This is the way for joy Fleming over to Ludwigshafen, the young industrial city on the opposite bank. Joy Fleming, the only national rank, only on this side of the Neckar River dialect singer feels at home: in Mannheim, the town square. For 250 years, Mannheim is the only German city, whose Straßen have no names, but numbers and letters. The rose garden in the heart of the city reminiscent of courtly times 300 years ago. Today, Mannheim is the fifth-largest economic centre of the Federal Republic. The vitality and work rage of Mannheimer is proverbial. Here is well deserved and well lived. But tolerance is capitalized, and the open, provocative Word. Friedrich Schiller founded it in the national theatre. Criticism, courage and the commitment to freedom remain alive on this stage, since Schiller's "predator" were premiered here just 200 years ago.
The "Schiller Prize" alludes to the protesting poet of freedom, which the city annually awards to writers.
And even a line of development extends to the present: here, the automobile was invented. By Karl Benz. His descendants hi el on behalf of set, which today is known in the world. Mannheim, at the confluence of the Rhine and Neckar, with the second largest inland port in the Federal Republic: not especially lovely town, but one for the love at second sight.
Helmut Bantz, 23 years Olympic champion in Vault, lecturer at the German sport University in Cologne, the most important Sports Centre for research and training in the Federal Republic is today.
Here sport teachers for the schools and professional trainers are trained athletes trained and gained knowledge with State of the art research facilities, of which many then incorporated into the sporting practice.
That belongs to the sports science, learn already the freshmen at the introduction to the theory of the long jump technique. Once the basic shape is drawn, the students try them out.
Almost every sport has their own movements. Scientists and students to form a team, to the at play through biomechanical measurements to find out how the knee joint is burdened by dribbling and shot movement in soccer.
Sensors, measuring plates, computer: the Sports Hall as a laboratory.
For the science on a treadmill. Heart, circulation, respiration and metabolism are measured under different loads. Not only the sport, but also the medicine will benefit from the results.
The places at the sports College are in demand - not only in the Federal Republic. Students from 50 countries prepare in Cologne on the practice.
During the tour of the medieval old town of Lübeck, many visitors this front remain: brick Gothic, almost 700 years old.
Whoever enters the House, is captured by the magic of old seafaring romance - the oldest sailor pub in the world. For 450 years it is maintained by the Lübeck "Schiffergesellschaft", an Association of captains with the patent for a great ride. Most are already veterans. Once in a week, they meet at the get-together.
On ceiling and walls: Souvenirs from a half Millennium maritime, tobacco rauchgeschwärzt, brittle has become in the course of time. Meanwhile, the captains have restored their pub and so arranged that she should survive the next 500 years.
Every year there is a special kind of competition in the Federal Republic: it concerns the title of "Beautiful village" to apply many of the over 5,000 villages. Commissions draw across the country and make your judgment. At the end, only a few villages with the coveted title may adorn themselves. Because the standards are strict.
Upper East Village in Bavaria belongs to the 13 communities that were awarded this year with a gold medal. Here, the competition judges, what they searched for in vain in many other villages found: a well thought-out overall plant, manicured lawns, gardens, houses and public buildings, a healthy economic and social structure and - A lot of citizenship. The 30 farms in the village are full-time farms. Of the 600 inhabitants, most in the local small businesses work. 90 go outside for commuters to a workplace.
Your community center was a plus in the assessment. The Oberostendorfer have built it with their own hands without payment: with shooting range, bowling alley and fitness room has become it the meeting place for the residents.
90 inhabitants play in the band: a giant Orchestra for this small village, which is big in other things, in the willingness to make sacrifices for the village church, which has been fully renovated with donations of the inhabitants. Thanksgiving brings together all Oberostendorfer. Workers in the Federal Republic of Germany to strike less frequently than their counterparts in other countries. You know represented by strong and independent trade unions. 17 not competing unions are United under the umbrella of the DGB, the German Trade Union Confederation. You argue successfully for social progress and independently conclude their collective bargaining agreements with contractors.
Trade Union representatives in the supervisory boards of large companies sit in the framework of participation. The strong role of the trade unions gave workers not only high income and social security. The so-called education vacation among the social achievements. Every employee has a legal right to be on leave, so he professionally or politically can educate themselves every two years for 10 working days of its operation.
For example, Rifka. He works in the German branch of an international company. It takes knowledge of foreign languages. English he can. Now, he wants to learn more Spanish. For this, he visited a 14-day course at a language school.
Manfred Hoge is patrolman. Interested in social contexts. He has occupied a vocationally oriented seminar in a training home for his Union.
Hoge and A few colleagues discuss with sociologists and psychologists about modern social fundamental conflicts and ways of their solution.
The educational leave should strengthen the political knowledge and judgment of the employee or improve his professional qualifications. A growing number of workers makes use of, especially since during this time your salary is paid on them.
Monika Blasczyk, 18 years of age: one of the girls, which compete increasingly to the men on the racetracks of Germany. In the race for the "prize of the Pearl necklace", the Jockey ladies were once among themselves. Monika's Stallion is stubborn. Today, every second amateur Jockey in Germany is a girl. Also among the professionals 18 ladies riding with. Often in the top flight, such as Monika Blasczyk, exceptionally after riding in this race, the field. Apparently, her Stallion does not bead necklaces.
Another WINS the jewellery, Monika will last: an unusual experience for the blonde from Westphalia, which the most successful German Jockey was girl last year.
On the Jägerhof in Warendorf, worked and coached the amateur rider. The profession of paralegal has learned. Watering, feeding, mucking out: for Monika that pertains to. She grew up with horses. At the age of three, she was sitting for the first time in the saddle.
A woman is also her coach. But this is rather an exception. The horse has long been a purely male affair. Only four years ago, women against men may start in the Federal Republic.
Not A lot of female jockeys hold most of the coach and team owner. Them lacking - so they say-at the crucial moment the necessary strength and hardness. Monika Blasczyk not impressed that: "We have", she says, "More feeling than the men, and many horses need that."
