A small North German town and its French sister city. Foreign tourists who travel on foot or in the car by the Federal Republic of Germany, amazed asking the meaning of road signs. The answer is simple: the twinning are evidence for the growing together of Europe and for the willingness of the Germans, to open their country to the European neighbours.
Young French, who make your sailing license in Travemünde on the Baltic Sea together with Germans. One of the annual 3,500 events within the framework of the German-French Youth Office, which is financed jointly by France and Germany. On a disused windjammer, they live in this time. The Franco German youth exchange offers summer camps, language courses, vocational training, and much more. The youth of both countries should learn to know and better understood in this way. Not only for young people, millions of car holidaymakers from Scandinavia use open borders, which applies the Federal Republic every summer as a transit country for their travel in southern countries.
The borders in Western Europe have fallen virtually, also the citizens will benefit. Holland, Belgium and France are on the other side of the Rhine. Who lives nearby, likes make a detour to the neighbors. There is shopping, because there are virtually No more duties in the European Community, or you will be inspired for A few hours of a different culture and way of life. And since the Germans have discovered the French cuisine, alone she is regarded as a worthwhile destination.
For many years, the Schönburg castle on the Rhine is international Jugentreffen. De States were already young people to guest, to socialize and learn about one of the most beautiful landscapes of in Germany. In a time in which many parts of the world the boundaries between States solidify, the borders in Western Europe gradually lose their sense. One feels that in the Federal Republic, especially in the holiday months, which many use to something closer to meet the neighbors in the other country.
In the suburbs of big cities it every now and again their tents set up: around 60 small circuses in Germany, which already are pushed off from the competition of the large circus companies on the small towns and villages. In the cities, they want the big spectacle of his. Also, the space rental for the small are usually A lot too high. They have probably only therefore survived the age of television, football and cinema because they are family businesses, where all hold together. The senior is the command. At the circus "Atlas", it is the 68-year-old Georg Frank, who conducted 14 children and 70 grandchildren. Son Philip spieltzu various circus acts the Hammond organ, if he is not himself as a horse trainer in the ring.
Each family member takes any employment. The circus needs also an electrician or plumber and not only artists such as Antonio, who seeks the public acclaim for his skills.
the year George, great-grandson of the Director, is the youngest star of the ring. With the Ratja elephant bulls, he introduces a number that can hold your breath for some viewers.
The working day of a circus man is long: at five o'clock early the animals need to be fed, evening at 11 pm is closing the last performance.
Idealism is needed behind the scenes. Because the credit is narrow. Even the Director receives only half of what a German skilled workers earned.
There are no pensions for most circus people, you will have to also later somehow useful, yet they stick with it. They oppose the glittering, big show of the circus giant power honest, artistic Lei. And it thus remains To find their audience.
Images of the people, the transformation of the human being in Western art: 3 months this topic dominates the West Berlin's cultural scene. The occasion: 150 years ago, the first public museum was founded in Berlin. It should serve the research and the humanistic education and be independent of the arbitrariness of the respective ruler. The following stormy recovery which benefited West Berlin today Prussian museums: With its now 14 museums West Berlin is one of the most attractive art and cultural centres in Germany. To the 150-year anniversary exhibition gathered, hardly is - repeating your central theme in this quality with masterpieces from their own collections and loans from private property, and the most important museums of the world: the man in the mirror of his time, from antiquity to the present.
The idealized art of antiquity, the religious of the Middle Ages was replaced in the Renaissance of a humanism that determines the art today: the unique individuality of the person.
The Berlin exhibition records these lines of development with masterpieces Dali in European art history until today, to Salvador.
The death is a topic early and pulls A few artists of the 20th century. Century temporarily completely for the first time experienced onlookers, a reflex on the en modern mass wars, with their horror and sorry fall for millions of people, centuries old social and political structures, and the artist found himself suddenly in the role of the chronicler and critic again, until the horror culminated in the Nazi concentration camps.
Violence, emergency, alienation: a main topic of the Visual Arts today. In the 2,000 years since ancient Greece, the image of the people has changed indeed, and as it seems, not just for the better.
Plastic: every day we deal with him. Almost unmanageable its areas of application. Already 800 parts made of plastic are fitted in some cars. So far, oil provides the feedstock for plastics. Now coal to take his place.
The German industry already successfully experimented with the coal. While she is in two steps. First methanol produced from coal - chemical catalysts. This produces the coveted coal hydrocarbons in liquid form or as a gas.
Continues for the replacement oil however, that it is more expensive than oil in the production.
In the newly developed plants of the chemical industry such as here at BASF in Ludwigshafen, the methanol into its components is decomposed. In turn, using of catalysts. Liquid and gaseous hydrocarbons are won. They contain mainly olefins and aromatics - the most important raw materials for plastic production, which provided only the oil.
The splitting process is controlled electronically. On Bildschirmgeraten, the respective amount in quality of types of carbon can be obtained at each production stage.
The plastics industry would be technically already able to change oil on coal from the source material. But this procedure is still too expensive. 350 years ago they saw excited on their mayor, whether it were possible to clear the massive wine jug in a course: the Councillors of Rothenburg ob der Tauber. Because the Imperial General Tilly, who had conquered the city, had made that a condition. Otherwise, he wanted to behead the Councillors and destroy the city. Rothenburg so owes his drinking Mayor, that it is the visitors with a cityscape present can, which has hardly changed since 1650.
From all over the world, they come mostly from the United States. Hundreds of thousands of tourists who To want visit a a koser fourth tale in Rothenburg. Rothenburg on the heart has grown especially the Americans. They are weak at the sight of the manicured Idyll of bullions and complete their tour in the firm belief of the true heart, having discovered the romantic Germany.
However, also the cultural historically interested in Rothenburg at his own expense. With its towers, gates and churches, its town houses dating from the Gothic and Renaissance, Rothenburg is a city that lives happily and vigorously. On the merits Of course by the tourists. Before them, the 12,000 residents spread their 800th history every summer with artisan routine from the "Emperor trunk" in the Town Hall up to the "pastoral dance" on the market.
Horse racing in the Wadden Sea, in front of the beach of Cuxhaven. Since 1902 an additional holiday fun for guests looking for recreation in the old North Sea resort. Horse and Trotter on a 1000-m line, which frees the North Sea only for hours: for the horses a strange route on which she quickly his footing. Of course involves here too prices and premiums. But the real value of Cuxhaven wattage race lies in its appeal as a tourist attraction. So the Cuxhaven city fathers had hoped also to, as they searched for turn-of-the-century invasions, to boost tourism along its coast.
