01 30 years EC Europe celebrates its birthday: the community of European States was now 30 Jahrc old. According to the politicians, but also of citizens it has proven itself - despite prophecies of doom. And so the members of the European Parliament in Strasbourg, which is now composed of 12 Nations, optimistic about the future.
The European Community had started 30 years ago with the signing of the "Treaty of Rome". The leaders of Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Italy, France and Germany formed at that time, in 1957, the "Europe of the six". 1973 Denmark, United Kingdom and Ireland joined the community, which grew to the 'Europe of nine'. Greece to the 'Europe of ten"came in 1983 as an additional member.
After 1986 even Spain and Portugal joined the community, the "Europe of the twelve" already twice as many members as at the establishment of 1987 has 30 years ago. Young people discuss the anniversary with German politicians. Europe today is first and foremost can be experienced reality. The limits for example are freely navigable for Europeans. Virtually no pass everyone where he wants goes in the European Community.
Full goods tables waiting for the 320 million consumers of Europe. While oversupply and fierce competition led partly to a fall in prices - a disadvantage for the EC farmers - consumers and connoisseurs, however, benefit from the diversity of the offer - and even Europe is growing together. It shows the meeting of young people from the different countries of Europe: the step from the economic to the human community is already done - and that Europe is close nähergerückt as a political entity.
02. paddle steamer "Goethe" clearly to the exit! The steam whistle gives the signal, the impellers sit in Eewegung: the last Steamboat on the Rhine begins his romantic ride. For Goethe, one of the most important German poet and patron of the vessel, was the age of the steam engine in the future. Although he liked heard at the end of his life, that somewhere in America a man named Fulton had constructed a steam ship for the first time. The German poet has none more experienced themselves.
The journey on the Rhine with the last steam ship is a particularly nice experience for guests. As the ship glides away quietly, not to compare with the loud, excited Nevy of modern motor ships. The paddle steamer "Goethe" offers his passengers smooth ride over the Rhine, past the world famous Rocky massif of the Loreley.
The old paddle steamer is at home in Cologne and therefore carries the coat of arms of his hometown. His trips in the summer months along the beautiful German countryside on both sides of the Rhine, past at the castle ruins and small towns, fascinate visitors from all over the world. Mttten in the stream: the Palatine, a medieval castle. Many passengers love the leisurely trip with the old paddle steamer and drag him before all other ships.
03. crash of the computer this strange entity is not about an unidentified flying object. No, this monster is "only" the evolution of the automobile. The simulator of superlatives, nine meters high and expensive twenty-five million marks, was developed by Daimler-Benz. With his help, it can determine exactly how driver and vehicle in exceptional situations in the road traffic Act.
With incredible technical effort, everything is so realistic pretended that the driver just feel and respond like with a right drive. The system, crammed with computers, allows precise analysis of the complicated interplay between man, vehicle and road. Also sudden winds and snow are simulated or completely unvorherschbare situation! The Simulator shows that this geführthätte in reality to a serious accident. Another rider: Will He dominate the maneuver?
The development Chief soberly summarizes the sense of this technical Super unit: 'We have the Simulator, because we know that we need to know much more.' The Simmulator paves the future of the car.
04. journey to travel to Berlin to Berlin and to stroll around here today is the easiest thing in the world. Among the cities of Europe, awaken the desire to travel, Berlin appeared relatively late. For centuries, Berlin was more Stapelund hub as a tourist destination. With the new exhibition "The journey to Berlin", the city reminds that the constant mixture of foreigners and locals, the comings and goings have particularly marked the character of Berlin. With the horse-drawn carriage, the trip was associated for centuries with some effort. The carts unsprung until the modern era were the purest Bone Crusher.
At the beginning of our century, the horse-drawn carriage was replaced by the car and Berlin in the shortest time to the center of the modern road network in Germany. People and goods in the old German capital flow today unhindered transit motorways. But also the railway manages connections in all directions.
For the development of Berlin to the city, railways have played even the decisive role. Up to 'pad 'class the range of travel options ranged from the simple compartment, still divided into 'Non-smoking', 'Smoking' and 'Women'! Who could afford it, traveled with these luxury trains, the 'northern express' from Paris about or the 'Siberian' after Vladivostok.
And then: the plane! From Berlin, the German aviation evolved and today, the Berlin airports are a fixed point of reference in all considerations of travellers. The 'Hamburger Bahnhof' abandoned over 100 years ago has been restored for the exhibition.
05. Phantasialand so well like every child in the Rhineland knows the 'site' in Brühl, the largest leisure and entertainment park in Germany. The attractions are accumulating on an area of 280,000 square meters. And who once paid admission, all can use and look, all day long.
And there's really plenty to see an original Western City for example, the "Silver City", or also the largest collection of replicas in Chinese style throughout Europe. There, artists from the far East show their Kunstücke. Star of the force is trained at the world famous Hangzhou artist School of People's Republic of China Wu Min, the best plate juggler in the world. Everyone knows: In the 'site' there is what every corner Marvel. The Mono-rail express going back, like in the flights by foreign countries and all times up to the era of the dinosaurs. The most fun it makes it but wherever water is in the game, either with the gondola away - or with the tank in the middle. From there, they cannot wait what happens so anything exciting on the shore alone. But - there are almost all agree – most exciting and the most beautiful it is there but where it started: on the slide of the whitewater course.
06. the world as a clock tower as a sign of strength and pride: so was the era in which this tower stood - 400 years ago.
German clocks and machines from the years 1550 DIS 650, is a unique exhibition in the Bavarian National Museum. The exhibition's theme was the keyword of an era: "The world of the clock".
At the beginning of the modern era one imagines the world as artful mechanical workings, that holds together - and moving Cosmos, the State and the people. The precious pieces come from the coffers of the Fürstcnhöfe. For large banquets, the showpieces in motion were used to maintain--the guests and to impress them! We admire today the masterful crafts of our ancestors.
07. world champion in the helicopter aerobatic helicopter pilots consider this bizarre models nit indulgence. You know the tricky problems of their flying machines and also, how many inventors useless have broken the head himself, to build "Windmühlenflugzeuge". All' these types have been built earlier really. Only: None could fly. But finally you found the trick: so that not the fuselage turns to the rotor, a transverse-acting propeller must be synchronously stabilizing effect. Only nit of these elaborate control mechanisms between the 'pitch', the control stick, the main rotor and the stabilizer can fly a helicopter. Is a difficult art to master the multiple control with the "pitch". Today, it is as far as developed recently sports competitions among the pilots was carried. Who carefully trained many flight types and the complicated device then who is with perfection in the hand, has views of championship Laurel.
Karl Zimmermann had put always this goal is by the German army aviators. Now he was already the second time world champion in helicopter aerobatics.
In his machine of the type BO 105, a helicopter from German production, Captain Carpenter shows, which tricks a modern helicopter is capable, when a world champion flying it.
