1st Castle Linderhof castles and castles in Germany, for example: Linderhof Castle close to Munich - the precious artifact of a romantically confused King. Ludwig II of Bavaria had built between 1874 and 78 in the style of a bygone era: determines the overloaded splendour of the French baroque architecture and facilities.
The pomp of the French Louis XIV. had done to the young ruler of Bavaria. In Germany, already the railway ran for 40 years as the escapism-dreamer Once again evoked the splendour of absolutist Royal household.
Every year countless tourists move incredulous amazement through this fairytale world, where Ludwig stopped time, to forget his own time.
Global economic problems and tougher competition force 02. technological challenge developed countries to deep structural changes. New technologies that save costs and above all energy, plays a key role. Also, the Federal Republic of Germany meets this challenge. For example, Reactor pressure vessels, so far steel cast and forged and expensive imported, are by a German company now from pure Schweßmmaterial in one piece constructed. In contrast to conventional steel can hardly deteriorate the new material radioactive radiation.
Also from the space technology come new insights for economical energy systems. Optimum combustion, necessary in rocket engines led to the development of a measuring device for the atomization of the fuel. The next step was a burning stove, soot-free, i.e. the oil with highest energy use under extremely low emissions burns.
Another keyword: micro-electronics; a small plastic card, in which a microcomputer is integrated. Withdrawals from an account are stored by you and recalled. At the recent Hanover fair she was named the "exhibit of the year", applicable as a credit card at department stores or savings banks.
The consequences of technological change cause controversy and sometimes resistance. Many jobs are rationalised away by modern electronics, for example, but an economy that wants to remain competitive, can hardly forgo cost-saving technologies.
The technical possibilities of development shows also this car for the disabled: the voice and microphone functions are controlled with a computer in the trunk.
In Hamburg, she was now tested: a subway train without a driver, automatically controlled and monitored by a route Centre.
Train the computer receives the data and passes it to the electric drive units. At Headquarters, the signal boxes controlled and monitored the stops. The programmed driving 20 percent power save - an example of many that shows that especially new energy-saving technologies To give the purpose-new opportunities.
03. holidays in the countryside a little village on the eastern edge of the Federal Republic of Germany. But the children who move the cows from pasture, come from the big city. Holidays on the farm - a growing number of Germans seeking in the most precious weeks of the overcrowded tourist centres of No more, but the unspoilt rural Idyll /.
2 million bookings a year - many farmers have turned to a and established guest quarters on her court. For them, it is a welcome sideline and the holidaymakers families save money compared to the expensive hotels despite more comfortable accommodation. Village boredom? The supporters of this kind of vacation the least afraid. And here, close to the border that divides Germany into two States, a view of barbed wire and concrete inevitably in the holiday program.
Those who opt for holidays between stable and barn, looking especially the experience of nature. Farm holidays are holidays for families with children, who see here very unusual things first and foremost.
The holiday trend in the country is an economic factor should not be underestimated for the structurally disadvantaged areas along the border. It is one of pure pleasure, however, if you can even help the farmers along the way when the hard work of harvest.
04. the "alternative" changed the political landscape in the Federal Republic of Germany. Alter-native groups, mostly environmentally-oriented, have been created. For some time, they are represented with members in many State and municipal. The established parties and the alternatives together reject coalitions. The headquarters of the green alternative list in Hamburg - an example among many. They accuse the mainstream parties, they were frozen and would evade the tactics sake issues - while the established parties hold the Altersnativen a lack of political realism.
The alternatives make the existing social consensus in question: so the gegründetet on economic growth, technological progress and consumer industrial society with its environmental hazards. Instead, they demand a new quality of life that is free from economic constraints, which protects environment and solidarity rather than the principle of performance.
The new groups attract mainly young people. But in the face of the global economic problems, energy problems and rising unemployment rates, other population groups by the demands of the alternatives feel addressed. Their success is also attributable to the failure of the Bonn parties, To find answers to the new questions. In the last elections percent have chosen 5-10 for the alternatives. Their demands of the vast majority of citizens but appear utopian and contradictory. In any case, that is political landscape into movement.
05. Wilhelm Busch Max and Moritz, the two rascals who treat their fellow human beings as imaginative as treacherous pranks; they are world famous; its inventor is the German artist and poet Wilhelm Busch.
The most popular children's book was translated into over 40 languages, whose humorous criticizing the Spießbürgertum aimed at adults. That Wilhelm Busch was an outstanding painter, few realized. He dubbed himself his pictures that he, if he does not immediately burned them, hid shyly as "Geschmier". In a rectory, Wilhelm Busch spent the last years of his life. Top his life and work, the biographer puzzle today. Even or especially because he relentlessly caricatured the human task and error, he was a philanthropist and was always on the side of the weaker. Where he died in 1908, in his native Lower Saxony, Wilhelm Busch was honored for his 150th birthday with exhibitions and events. A theatrical performance brought one of his picture stories on the stage; It is the story of a poet is prevented through the adversities of everyday life. Here it is the tooth pain that at night the doctor out of bed ringing him can be.
The doctor can not eliminate tooth and pain. He diagnosed the evil at the root. The prevented poet Baldwin tanks lamb is also a piece of scathing self-irony of the often unrecognized painter and poet Wilhelm Busch.
06. 100 years Kieler operated week sailing competition, is - like any competitive sport - hard work. Nevertheless: the participants of this year's Kiel week had every reason to celebrate, because the largest sailing event in the world was 100 years old.
in 1882 it started: all 20 sailors met the first Kiel regatta. Pleasure sailors, they were called derisively. But the "Kieler Woche" within a few years became known at home and abroad. Not least because of the Emperor, for whom the international regatta at the same time was a showcase of maritime power. Today the "Kieler Woche" has long been the Mecca of Segelsportier. In the Jubilee year, 4,000 sailors with 1,500 boats from almost 30 countries were represented.
While out in the stiff breeze of Baltic Sea was fought to every meter, tens of thousands of spectators met land, before the mast forest of the windjammer.
With a large folk festival and almost Mediterranean atmosphere, the normally staid city on the fjord proved the old lady, the Kiel, still feels as Teen week also on her 100th birthday. Is to circle the globe, today almost a breeze; with the sail training ship Gorch Fock takes a little longer.
