German gemstone road. This is the name of this 50 km long route through the Hunsrück. A free museum highlights also the random tourists: precious and semi-precious stones are found here - since the middle ages. The many quarries are a destination for amateur collectors and leisure mineralogist in the warm season. Here, they can trace the history of the Earth for hundreds of millions of years. And if they are lucky, they are To find a barite, agate and other semi-precious stones.
The first polishing plants were here in the 16th century. Century built. Hydropower drive the wheels, as in this 200-year-old grinding mill, a family company that maintains the old processing methods.
On a tilting Chair, the grinder presses the rough stone on routierende mighty sandstone wheels.
It is modern in the large processing companies. But also there the loop remains hand work.
Already in the last century the capacity of the gem and jewelry industry was so grown with their centre of Idar-Oberstein, that the local finds No more sufficient. Since then, raw materials from all over the world is imported and re-exported with the coveted "Idarer Schüff".
Every 70 seconds starts or ends up somewhere in the world a machine of the German airline Lufthansa. The only lines airline of Germany celebrates their 25th anniversary these days. in 1955, the Federal Republic in the aviation industry was virtually a developing country. Shortly before she had received back their air supremacy from the former victors of the second world war. Rush were trained pilots and flight attendants and aircraft purchased to gain connection to international aviation.
The first Lufthansa plane in Hamburg was launched on April 1, 1955. Two months later, the trans-Atlantic traffic was recorded.
Eight years after its maiden flight Lufthansa could reward already its eight millionth passenger, steady growth, but no experiments: according to this motto, the company purchased their aircraft. Until far in the seventies, they came from a manufacturer. The guaranteed economy for the spare parts and maintenance.
The established airline secured a lead in many technical areas. The borescope, a borrowing from the human medicine allows the verification of the most inner parts of the engine.
Their expertise provides Lufthansa today also in other countries. So she trained pilots and ground crew of some developing countries and these countries helps build of national air lines.
International cooperation in the maintenance of aircraft has proved itself worldwide. Today, Lufthansa belongs to the big airline companies in the world. With the quiet and economical Airbus on which Lufthansa started direct influence, she hopes to be prepared for the future.
Art exhibition - different: here objects and viewers are left entirely to themselves. Art should be free. But where people participate, constraints set. The free Berlin art exhibition was built almost 100 years ago as a protest Berlin artists against the regimentation and academic torpor of the art world. They wanted to be free and show his stuff without having to stand before a top jury. Democratization of the art was the motto: an art show without jury, to which all are invited. Once in the year, the free Berlin art exhibition gives an overview of the work of artists in the city.
The spectrum is correspondingly broad. The works hang alongside those of Academy professors from Sonntagsmalern. Over a thousand paintings, graphics and sculptures which were this time to visit and buy, too, are examples of almost all contemporary styles.
The only Beschränkunge who imposed the artist himself, is a careful planning and organization of the exhibition. Many artists and artist groups jointly developed the design. Our guiding principle will be continue, each artist working in Berlin uncensored coming to words.
Birds cut in vain this waste factory: feed is here not to pick. In this modern recycling facility, the metropolis of Hamburg burn much of their household waste and WINS it electricity, scrap metal and slag. Only private households in Germany produce 20 million tons of waste annually. Most is deposited so far still in the countryside and endangering air, water and Earth. At the same time, valuable raw materials are lost. The incinerator is a recycling compromise: reusable raw materials are lost while burning, but it won power and new raw materials. With electrical energy from waste incineration, Hamburg now covers 5% of its total electricity consumption.
Power generation and odorless burning of waste, of which only 10% as slag is left: these are the advantages of this waste disposal factory. But also the slag is used. A sorting plant separates after different grit, electromagnets pull out the metal parts which then go as scrap to steelworks.
The slag is used as substrate for paths, roads and playgrounds. Currently, the incinerator marks an intermediate. There are already recycling plants in the planning, which pull out all reusable raw materials out of the garbage and automatically sort.
Trier on the Moselle: perhaps the oldest city in Germany. The Roman Emperor Augustus founded 2,000 years ago.
Monument, Trier is a model case. Much skill and money must be spent, to preserve the historic buildings, of which A few from Roman times come. A successful example is the market square with its Gothic and Renaissance houses.
A monument, although recent, this House is. Karl Marx was born here in 1818, the founder of Marxism. Around 100 image and text panels illustrate the spiritual way of life of the philosopher and Economist. His main work, the "capital", is now a basis for discussion for students anywhere in the world. Also at the University of Trier, referring to her 500th birthday has created a modern language centre.
The thorn to Trier. Its Basilica is over 1,600 years old. Polish restorers, which are among the best in the world helped for nearly 10 years, this precious building repaired. The collapse-prone Vault was secured with steel grating and Counterstops. In the Catholic Trier, the thorn is one of the most important witnesses of a living past.
Spectators and performers together in victory, but also in the defeat. Who dares in the ice arena in Dortmund, know one thing sure: viewers hope and fear with him. And he is even a public star, then they celebrate each successful jump, Olympic medalists Robin enchanted his fans cousins again. The world's best freestyle skiers ran the best freestyle of his life in Dortmund.
The Super stylist from Grofßbritannien didn't make it at the end, to close his point gap from the run of obligation to. Silver made gold for cousins, the audience from it. World Championships and figure skaters Dortmund, new talent and new trends became apparent: the athlete is losing ground compared to the artist. They all are athletes, whether individually or as a pair. Weightless dancing and sliding, to artistic leaps of floating lightness: The figure skating of the 1980s will be more perfect.
Dagmar Lurz, also a crowd pleaser: because she is at home in Dortmund. At the Olympics in Lake Placid, she won the bronze medal. A dazzling final of her career: for she ran in Dortmund for the last time on the ice.
Silver for Dagmar. An American ice Revue offered her a half-million mark for the carry on. The 21-year-old refused and began studying medicine just 3 days later.
