01 youth ticket young foreigners who travel to thousands at night by Germany. With the car because it's cheap, and at night, so the day remains free for what one is curious.
From America and Japan, Spain and Sweden, they come and carry Abdallah with what they need for a three week trip. Inter Rail - pass of the European railways - cheap is made it easy for the youth tourist to travel great distances with little money. The Deutsche Bundesbahn the Hitchhiker ticket in addition offers you 4 weeks criss -cross can travel by the Federal Republic: an invitation to get to know country and people.
Whether by train or bus, by car or bicycle: it counts the freedom to stop at any time there, where one like it. For a few hours, but also for days when fate brings together people who see themselves spontaneously.
The young foreigners get to know a hospitable country, and many return to the Federal Republic. In the last year went here 800,000 youth tourists from all over the world on a journey of discovery.
02. democracy in the municipality election at the municipal level. The municipalities are democratically organized in the Federal Republic, and manage their local affairs on their own responsibility. Here, community members take political positions, such as the wine merchant Joseph Heinen, who as Mayor influence municipal decisions. Money doesn't get Hamdan for this volunteer activity. He must earn that in his profession.
Success in the profession politically affects - and vice versa. When Heinen's wine nothing is good, then people as Mayor wasn't more take him seriously.
In the place, a road has been placed higher, a fellow sees this reduced the residential value of his home. Now the Konmunalpolitiker must be einfalien a practical solution, which satisfies all sides. There are points of contention in each community. Here in the AHR Valley dealing with the question of whether another bridge across the River will be built. Better transport links, or protection of the environment: these people want to speak their minds. The events of parties and electoral associations are always well attended, if a contentious issue to the debate is that all moves.
Self-Government is limited to needs of local, directly touching the citizens in the municipality. These include transport and housing, politics, leisure social institutions.
In the close coexistence of the local community, the voters will quickly whether a politician is only sayings or does a solid job. That's what the special Keiz of democratic participation in the community. For both sides.
03. new State Gallery in Stuttgart who looks here exhibited works of art, have to find the entrance first. Everything is different than anywhere else in the "new State Gallery" in Stuttgart. Architecture as a game. This setting, the British architect James Sterling built an unconventional case of modern art. Architecture critics were head, saw sacred faith houses lying on the floor.
James Sterling has not built, how it orders the Bauhaus school: not cubes and cube of glass, concrete and steel, but Gables classicism, columns and Rotunda - a building of known as postmodernism. Sterling is an ironic play depicting the history of the building and not shy away even from Castle romantic. Rooms, ramps and staircases add seemingly unintentionally to a stage in which also the visitor makes his appearance: as living sculpture in addition to stone figures.
04. 50 years of magnetic tape 1936: the London Philharmonic play Mozart in Ludwigshafen. It is the first concert that is recorded on tape. The engineer Fritz Pfleumer invented the tape 50 years ago, as a cigarette company, he helped to establish the then popular gold mouth piece so that the bronze dust not countries on the lips stick remained. To do so, he pressed the metal particles in a plastic film, which he also magnetized. As a music lover, he used this system for the recording of sound signals: the tape recorder was born.
The world war had stopped the spread of this new technology. 1950 then began its triumphal March around the Earth. Chemicals group BASF was leader. It was he who had produced the first 50,000 meters of tape in 1934, and two years later also recorded the concert of the London musicians.
The magnetic tape manufacturing has become since then in principle not changed. But the lonqualität has increased tremendously. In the 60s, Fritz Pfleumers incidence of mouth piece opened up new areas of application.
The tape recordings to the band for the computer came to the tape. Today taxes tapes large machinery and satellites. The inventor has hardly thought that at his tender mouth piece of foil sophisticated music lovers once hard-to-wear have interceptor.
05. old Germany VW-Foundation. Under the decapitated plaster old houses in Lübeck, it becomes visible. New Germany: this is an automotive group that gives money to the beautiful gothic brick facades from the middle ages can be restored.
The largest private foundation in the Federal Republic promotes 25 years research projects in science, culture and technology. Independent reviewers examined the applications - like this of the University Clinic in Munich. He was granted that the Munich operation team was already noticed by special performances in the micro surgery. Here it deploys a transplant for example a four-year girl who had fallen into a lawn mower with his heel at the injured site. Mikrochirugisch are made even the nerve connections. The Volkswagen Foundation financed the necessary expensive equipment.
The Guest House of the Technical University of Braunschweig is one of the hundreds of development projects. Foreign scientists who could take on a teaching assignment at the University on a VW scholarship live here. Applications by foreign scientists or research institutes are treated by the Foundation, basically as if they were made by Germans. What only matters is the importance of the research project. With this concept, the VW Foundation wants to make aware contributing to international cooperation.

07. Wiedereroffnung of the Nürburgring which was the Nürburgring, when he taught the Formel-1-Piloten still fear: a racetrack, which demanded 1927 around 300 deaths since its opening. But at the same time a course that fascinated fans and drivers with its beauty.
Start for the new Nürburgring. Eight years ago the old was closed, because it had become too dangerous. The Organizer then invested many million marks in safety for spectators and riders. In recent weeks, the new ring was tested by everything that has wheels, on its suitability.
14 television cameras capture now every slope angle. The race has a complete overview and can respond immediately when the unexpected happens. The ring was preserved as a playground for private speed freaks. Anyone who sniff his oldie or tuned sports car racing air wants to allow, can for a fee on the slope. So, that was already 1950 at the postwar home of the old Nürburgring. Also drivers and spectators closer, were to be of both claims. The Rennbe seekers who wanted to experience the run Chase, did not think of the risk.
It was the driver who demanded more security. Especially Niki Lauda after his serious accident 1976 23 kilometres with 174 curves: it's the old Nürburgring. The new comes out with four and a half kilometres and 14 curves. Not as exciting, but also not more dangerous.
