01 DB 90 - transport policy for the future of the railway is the oldest mass transit, approximately 150 years old. Can she still contend with car and airplane? This is an important question of the transport policy of each country. With its extensive rail network 300,000 jobs depend on the railway in the Federal Republic of Germany alone. Course for the future must be provided for the railway. Just because the railroad has large financial losses, must be renewed and invested. Only in this way, the competitiveness can be recovered. Therefore, new tracks for faster trains will be built. Persons and goods must be transported faster and improve the service.
Stations be modernised in an innovation program designed for several years. New restaurants for travellers emerge. Data terminals are established for the sale of tickets so that every passenger at the time of purchase can be discussed also at the same time comprehensively. But the most important wall that needs to be broken for a competitive railway, is the cost wall of investments in new high speed trains. This is the ICE, the first samples of a new turn of the Deutsche Bundesbahn. The passenger has the best chance of winning. The ICE is designed on a travel speed of 350 km per hour.
In addition to the requirement for high speed, especially the needs of passengers in the foreground were planning. With an ample range of space, the railway will make competition especially the aircraft. The concept is simple. The Bundesbahn wants to achieve half of the speed in the air transport sector in the future. A 350-400 km per hour faster train could then bring passengers on Middle distances - for example from Frankfurt to Munich - almost as fast to the target like a plane. The time-consuming arrival and departures, waiting times at airports are omitted on the railroad. Better service, greater convenience, faster trains: these are the advantages of the railway in the competition. But still, she's not all in the hand.
02. Werkzeugmaschinenfabrik Traub in Reichenbach on the Fils, a half hour's drive from Stuttgart away, machine tools are made for 50 years. Traub is one of German companies, which are customers from all over the world give the doorknob in hand today. And not without reason: Traub produces top-quality machine tools. Machine tools are the tool itself. They replaced drill, milling machine, file - and of course many workers. Perfection and aüßerste precision are thereby essential.
Precision cuts, drills and turns this machine the workpiece according to the specifications. And even more: If the drill bit or Fräskop breaks down or no longer has the desired cutting force, he is changed automatically. This electronically controlled machines can follow work steps with up to 28 different tools. Without interruption. And no, that only human working shaft. The monitoring of these computer-controlled machines to be, however, learned. Significant knowledge and experience are necessary. In special courses staff of customers from all over the world are therefore instructed and trained. This service from the outset is one of the advantages of the German machine tool industry for many foreign clients.
But what happens when one of these highly specialized machines anywhere but fails in the world for no reasons? A handle to the red phone is sufficient. Using an acoustic coupler, connected to the global telecommunications system "Mark 3", sources of error can be determined on the screen specifically. This service is particularly important for the German machine tool farmers.
03. There was no city that was richer than Lüneburg Lüneburg in Northern Germany. But that was long ago. A unique cityscape is preserved. Source of wealth was salt, which was stored directly under the city in huge quantities. Lüneburg lived in the 17th century only by the salt and the salt trade, which was at that time even to Africa. The old salt pans, which are today as a tourist attraction in operation, fabulous profits brought many hundreds of years. But then eased the underground cavities formed by the long salt yield under the city. Tore the walls, collapsed some houses.
Today is restored, what has been preserved, according to ancient artisan traditions. Wood cutting and clay stomping still alive are how many old handicrafts in Lüneburg. Because the salt stock is exhausted and the competition was greater, the profits were. Lüneburg impoverished. Nothing new could be built. So the city image remained, as it had developed until the 17th century. Thus, Lüneburg remained the only undamaged by World War 2 city of North German brick architecture, with buildings from the Gothic to the Renaissance. The Industrie - und Handelskammer resides today in the old Guest House of the 16th century.
Lüneburg is visited by many tourists today an especially lovable city, the center of an agricultural region, its beauty. And also the salt has found a new use. The salty air of the faggots of Gradierwerks is beneficial. It helps against many diseases. In recent years, focused on the natural healing properties of salt air and brine baths Lüneburg and changed to the Spa Centre, saltwater wave pool included.
04. Museum Mönchengladbach understood architecture as Visual Arts, which is based on curiosity and mood. The 1983 created Museum in the Rhenish Mönchengladbach was added by Viennese artist Hans Hollein building like a sculpture in a terraced mountain. The landscape reaches inside. A glass mountain, flowing forms of space with the combination of artificial and natural light. Wax blocks by Joseph Beuys accents in the entrance hall. The room will serve the intense encounter between work and Viewer.
Here, the Museum offers the entire range of modern art, exhibits of Wesselmann's pop art artist, Warhol or George Segal - a monochrome sculpture of the Frenchman Yves Klein. In a different complex: The Expressionists, for example the "garden image" by Heinrich Nauen. Also United in a special area: representatives of new realism, including "the clocks" by Arman. The Museum of Mönchengladbach will be no crowded 饺子馆 arts magazine. Rooms and exhibits are in special relationship to each other here. You want to be discovered, with all its surprises.
AB v. rides is the ride on the longest and fastest coaster! Speed: up to 110 km per hour. Venue: The "Hamburger DOM", one of the approximately 8,000 people, that every year there are in Germany. The showman especially with their "rides", the large technical systems offer thrills and technical sensations to pleasure of visitors. A serious, respectable industry stands behind the glittering world of pleasure. Engineers and technicians design and build these amusement machines. A strange world, a strange mixture of tinsel, kitsch and sophisticated engineering with computer technology.
60 million mark German Showmen invested last year. And they know what they are doing: for 170 million paying spectators flock annually to the amusement parks and carnivals in Germany. Because the acquisition worth more elaborate and State of the art of integrated large-scale. One and a half to three million marks an "amusement ride" costs a roller coaster, even seven million, including a spectacular design and computer control. Germany is number 1 for "Rides", especially after the United States, the World Center for the entertainment industry, but not the production of the exporter. Here: Viking ships, ready for shipment to an American amusement park. Also, a few new "break-dancer gondolas" going too.
What is the reason for the worldwide success of amusement "Made in Germany"? At least one reason is the careful security consideration by the "technical inspection Association" in Germany. The independent engineers check each item. No ride leaves the factory, if it is not completely assembled and in trial runs proved its safety.
06. FIL European Luge Championships 1988 uphill it was with the German Rennrodlern. On the idyllic Königssee lake in Berchtesgadener land athletes from 22 countries fought on the carefully smoothed rink 1988 European Championships. The ladies and gentlemen of the Luge sport had come not only from the great Soviet Union and the small Liechtenstein. European ice could believe even Luger from the Netherlands Antilles and the Virgin Islands from the distant Caribbean on it.
Already on the first day, there was joy in the camp of the German Bobsleigh and sled Association. Georg Hackl from Berchtesgaden clinched the gold medal in the individual men's Championship in tough competition with the sieggewohnten, favored sledders in the Soviet Union and the GDR. What must be a feeling the icy track fro abzufegen? Our cameraman wanted to experience that for our viewers.
Luge is certainly not for everyone. Soon the German team got down to business this time. After the first gold medal she had a silver by Veronika Bilgeri and by Johannes Schettel secured a bronze medal. With the double slide, luck remained the Germans. With the victory of Wolfgang Staudinger and Thomas Schwab the assets so successful as for 11 years were no longer: 3 gold, one silver and a bronze medal showed the success account. The successes were not also at the Winter Olympics: the Luger one silver and two bronze medals won in Calgary.
